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.

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.”
