Joe Ruggieri is a founding Saint Rose of Lima School Board member and has shared his time, talents and treasures with the Saint Rose of Lima Community in ways too numerous to count! Joe has been instrumental in the success of every Saint Rose of Lima Gala. Joe has been on every Gala Committee and filled the Gala venue with kind supporters while perfecting the role of master of ceremonies for the evening. Behind the scenes Joe has successfully solicited friends and business owners for auction items, tribute book ads and Gala sponsorships!
When Joe’s schedule became flexible, he stepped in as a mentor at Saint Rose of Lima. Joe has made an incredible impact on the lives of so many Saint Rose of Lima students. Each week, Joe meets with a group of middle school gentlemen and reviews chapters of literature. The meeting is so much more though, as Joe helps students navigate through difficult situations and prepares the young men for high school and beyond. Joe equips students with the necessary tools needed to become successful citizens.
Joe is the ultimate gentleman and an incredible role model for our students. Our students can count on Joe’s presence at every school play and graduation ceremony. His kindness knows no bounds. Joe is a true blessing to the entire Saint Rose of Lima Community!
