Stefano DePieri – This Mustang Flies!
Year of graduation: 2011
Best memories: 2010 Senior Boy's Soccer Provincials and 2011 band trip in Seattle
Life after Immac: Obtained my commercial pilot's license in 2013, and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 2016. I'm currently posted in Moose Jaw, SK. I just earned my wings in August 2019.
Teachers that had the biggest impact: my soccer coach, Mr. Freire and my band teacher, Mr. Mainella Every teacher at Immac had a positive impact, but soccer and band were just the most memorable parts of high school for me.
Words of wisdom for current students: Stay humble and remember that no job is "beneath" you. I spent a lot of time cleaning airplane cabins and loading baggage before getting the chance to work as a pilot. The time you spend doing the unpleasant work will pay off in the end, as long as you stay positive.
