Newsmaker: Nicholas Varischetti
Notable: Varischetti joined the Board of Trustees at La Roche College and was appointed to its Buildings & Grounds and Institutional Advancement committees. There, he'll work on capital campaigns for new buildings and an expansion of the college's athletic complex.
Background: As the youngest member of a family that owns several businesses through Varischetti Holdings LP, Varischetti went into law so he could offer something to the family that his brothers could not. While serving on the board of Every Child Inc., he met Steven Massaro, chairman of the board of trustees at La Roche. In addition to being a partner in Varischetti Holdings, Varischetti is an attorney at the law firm of Burns White, a director of Guardian Elder Care Holdings and a member of Pittsburgh's Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority, a financial oversight agency.
Education: bachelor's of arts in political science and business management, 2006; master's in public administration, 2008; law degree, 2011, all from the University of Pittsburgh.
Quote: “My father said, ‘Dream big, work hard, have fun.' I believe that La Roche provides students with an opportunity and platform where they are able to dream big, work hard and have fun.”

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
