Stockton College to be New Home for the HERO Campaign
The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and the Ensign John R. Elliott HERO Campaign for Designated Drivers announced a strategic alliance today that will make Stockton’s Galloway campus the new home for the non-profit drunk driving prevention organization.
Officials from the two organizations signed the affiliation agreement today on what would have been John Elliott’s 34th birthday. The HERO Campaign was established in memory of Ensign Elliott, of Egg Harbor Township, who was killed in a head-on collision with a drunken driver on July 22, 2000, two months after his graduation from the United States Naval Academy.
The partnership between the HERO Campaign and Stockton College will give the campaign additional resources to expand its programs throughout New Jersey and the nation, particularly on other college campuses.
“This is a great day for our two organizations as we join forces to end drunken driving tragedies throughout our state and nation,” stated Stockton President Herman Saatkamp. “We are proud of our association with the HERO Campaign and the Elliott family’s efforts to bring an end to drunken driving tragedies.”
