As a 1974 graduate, I was part of the second class to complete all eight elementary years at St. Germaine. After attending Brother Rice High School, I started my bricklaying apprenticeship. Nine years later, I changed professions and became an electrician. My first child, Gino, was born in 1984. My daughter, Angie, was born two years later, followed by Michael in 1990. In 2013, I was promoted to a Coordinator for Gibson Electric. Two years later, I became a proud Papa to Hannah and Owen.
While at St. Germaine, Ms. Trout used unique tactics to foster our learning. I was well prepared for high school because of the foundation that was built during my elementary years. I wanted to send my children to St. Germaine because I knew they would be challenged academically and supported spiritually.
