Nominated By: Linda F. Nathan

“Vito understands fully and believes completely in the potential of education, quality education for the individual and for expanding the general welfare of a society as well as providing the basis for societal and cultural renewal and enhancement of those socio-cultural values, which will result in the nurturing of human potential. His view of human potential is unburdened by anything other than equality – equality of potential for learning and growth regardless of gender, race, or socio-economic condition provided that nurturing conditions exist for schools and the socio-cultural community in which the school exists.” – Ivan J.
