Alum Feels Called HomeNick DiToro accepts position in Advancement Office
York College is pleased to announce that Nick DiToro, YC class of 1978, has joined the Office of Advancement as a development officer. Nick recently moved from Valparaiso, Indiana, to begin his work with the college.
“Nick has already shown a great heart for this ministry and a willingness to sacrifice so great things can happen here at York College,” said Brent Magner, Vice President for Advancement. “Students, alumni and the city of York will be the beneficiaries of his work. It’s great to welcome him and Debbie back to the campus and community.”
Nick received a BS in Accounting at Oklahoma Christian in 1980 and later went on to pass the CPA exam. He continued his education and later received an MBA from Indiana University Northwest. He has served twelve years in the corporate environment including positions as plant accountant, division controller and controller. In between owning his own real estate business Nick and his wife Debbie spent eight years in the ministry work at Shults-Lewis Child and Family Services where he also helped with fundraising.
“The time was right and the doors opened, and God reminded me how He works His ministry through this institution,” Nick commented when asked about his move to York. “My life was completely changed here by the examples of fellow students, by faculty, and by staff. My relationship with Jesus became mine here and I met my wife to be on the very first day on campus.”
He went on to say, “A solid foundation was given me then and it was up to me to build upon what God did through York College and the people He put in my path. There have been good highs and bad lows through the years, but we are who we are today in great part to our years at York. My wife and I believe God has called us back to York, and we couldn’t be more pleased to be reminded and have a chance to serve Him here. God still works here, and lives are still being changed. It feels like coming home.”
Nick and Debbie (Bertsch ’78) have three grown children: Jessica, Troy, and Nicole. Debbie has worked as a special education teacher and has her master’s degree in that field. She will join Nick at the end of the school year.
