Hopeful Ospreys from Pennsauken High School were a few of the 430 high school students
who got to experience Stockton University at the annual Latinx Visitation Day on Nov. 18. Latinx Visitation Day has been held at Stockton since 1987 and is fundamental
to showing Hispanic students all that the University has to offer. About 17 percent
of Stockton's students identify as Hispanic/Latino. The participating students came
from the following high schools: Atlantic County Institute of Technology, Egg Harbor
Township, Camden Academy Charter, DCF Regional High School, Upward Bound for ELL/Woodrow
Wilson, Bridgeton, Pennsauken, Hammonton, Oakcrest, Absegami, Cedar Creek, CCTS Penn
Tech-Pennsauken Campus and Camden County Technical School.

Bill Hagaman Jr. ’79 was ecstatic to announce his commitment to fund a new First Generation Student Endowed
Scholarship Fund on Nov. 10. Starting in 2023-24, two first-generation college students
in the School of Business will receive a $2,000 award to help defray their college
costs. This was the same amount given to him by Professor Yeager during his freshman
year when he did not have the funds to pay for his second semester. The School of
Business honored Hagaman with the inaugural Outstanding Alumni Award.
Along with the University, the Council of Black Faculty and Staff celebrated its 50th anniversary with a “family reunion” of past and present members in the Fannie Lou Hamer Event Room at Stockton Atlantic
City Nov. 12.
“We are here to remember the past, embrace the present and look to the future,” said
vice president John Gray, instructor of Organizational Leadership, who recalled arriving at Stockton as a
student aging out of foster care in 1986 and being embraced by the council members.
