Collected Tales from our Life's Journey's




Gary Vigorito


Where have you been? and what have you been doing? - - - family, school, career, pastimes, good times, etc.

I went to the American College of Switzerland,Leysin,Vaud C.H. after graduation from Eastmoor. I made lifelong friendships there. the school was very small (110 students) and it was more like a hybrid of a big family and the movie Animal House After 2 years I went to the University of the Americas in Mexico City. Left school for a while after getting 2 undergrads. i gravitated towards politics since I had a family member who was in Congress. I worked on numerous campaigns around the country. After getting tired of that I went back to grad school and picked up two more degrees. In 1982 I was appointed to head a large state regulatory commission. I managed to keep that fiduciary position for 25 years. I also taught part time at a local college for 21 years. I was eligible for retirement at 55 so I left as quickly as I could to be with My daughter and pursue My dreams.
