Alumni Take 5: Brian Pecchia â€˜00
What is the best advice you ever received?
Family comes first; this is how I was raised and how I am trying to live and inspire my family. The strong bonds with our loved ones help to raise us up when we are down and to celebrate together all things big and small.
If you could have an unlimited stockpile of one thing what would you choose?
Time with my kids.
Sleep; you can imagine a business owner, a teacher, a coach, a husband, and father of two small children burns the candle at both ends. Sorry, that’s three things!
What is the most memorable book that you read while a student at IMS?
Lord of the Flies; the class of 2000 and Ms. Parker know why!
What is the best meal that you’ve ever had on vacation?
My Great Aunt Franca’s lasagna when visiting family in Lucca, Italy on my honeymoon. There is nothing better than any food with your family, and there is nothing like the amazing bechamel sauce she makes.
What is your favorite song in your music library right now?
The title is ‘God of All My Days,’ by Casting Crowns. My favorite line from the song is “I ran from You, I wandered in the shadows, and found a God who relentlessly pursues.” My wife and I are seeing this band in Poughkeepsie, NY later this month!
