Students from St. Augustine, Moorestown help veterans find work




Madeleine Morlino has always had an affinity for the armed forces. Her father served in the U.S. Air Force for 23 years, acclimating her to a military background.

Morlino, of Moorestown, saw her father have trouble finding a job for months after he decided to retire from the Air Force. She knew there was a problem, and now she and other high school students are trying to help solve the problem they see.

Eight other seniors from Moorestown High School and a freshman from St. Augustine Prepatory School in Richland put together a job fair for veterans at the Moorestown Community House.

In a lead-up to Veterans Day, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 9, 10 different companies, such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Bank of America, will set up booths and conduct on-site interviews for jobs they have open, Morlino said. Men’s Warehouse of Mount Laurel is donating 200 suits for veterans to wear to talk to the companies, and free haircuts will be offered throughout the fair.
