Bruce Gitto ’87

On June 13, students from Egg Harbor Township performed a song written by Bruce Gitto ’87 at the Hamilton Mall. The song is titled, ‘End Hunger’ and promotes food drives for the Food Bank of South Jersey. Gitto ’87, a Business Studies graduate from Stockton says,

“[From the] class of 1987, I hold a degree in Accounting (BA) then went on to Education where I got a Masters in Education before Stockton had Graduate courses, otherwise I would have attended Stockton [again] without hesitation. My son is attending Stockton in the Fall, in what is I believe the first Physician’s Assistant Program there at Stockton. I am honored to have him attend there and so glad Stockton is offering SO MUCH in terms of programs now…”
