Nicholas Quicquaro '18 is a soon-to-be Eagle Scout with Troop 52 in Oakville. Like all Boy Scouts, he needed to do a service project to achieve this prestigious rank. He decided to give the Holy Cross courtyard a complete facelift. He trimmed trees, painted the statue of Saint Joseph, planted perennials and annuals, mulched, painted the flower bed borders and mowed the lawn. He even placed a new wooden bench in it. This project required many hours of service and a proved demonstration in leadership.
"Most of the donations used for this project came from Studio Q Architecture, owned by my father, Ronald Quicquaro," said Nick. "He really helped me as well as members from my Troop and my classmates, Macellan Fauth '18, John Vito '18 and Dermot Greene '18."
"We can't thank Nick enough for all of his work," said President, Peg Leger. "Thanks to his efforts, the courtyard looks better than ever."
Nick is a member of a Crusader legacy family. His sister, Rachael '15, cousins Alyssa '15, Adam '12, Daniel '94, Anthony Guerrera '93, Michael Guerrera '96 and uncles, Mike '82 and Anthony '79 are Holy Cross alumni. "When the time came to prepare for this project, I spoke with my parents, uncles and cousins," said Nick. "We all decided this would be a nice thing to do for this school. We personally believe so much in this school. The quality of education is wonderful, and we wanted to give something back."
Nick also carries a full work load at Holy Cross. In addition to his classes (which include Overview of Business), he is the Vice President of the Italian Club. He is also active in Mock Trial.
