Collegiate Friars: December 2017

A monthly spotlight, checking in on where recent Fenwick graduates are now. 


Name: Annie Trucco

Fenwick graduation: 2016

Hometown: River Forest

Grade school: St. Luke Parish School

Current school: University of Wisconsin - Madison 

Current Major: Real Estate and Italian (double major)

Career aspirations: Right now I am interested in the development side of real estate. My dream job would be to work with a development firm that brings historical buildings back to their original functionality. 

Fenwick Achievements/Activities: I was a Write Place tutor and member of the Italian Club. I also was captain of the Girls' Varsity Volleyball team for two years.

Fenwick teacher who had the most influence on you: While every teacher at Fenwick influenced me in so many positive ways, Ms. Visteen inspired me to be confident in myself and my beliefs. She also made me a much better writer! 

Fenwick class that had the most influence on you: AP Government was one of my favorite classes at Fenwick. Not only do I think it is important to understand our government, but Ms. Logas’ passion for the material gave me an appreciation for rights and institutions that I had previously taken for granted.  

Best Fenwick experience/the one you would like to live again: The Regional Championship game my senior year at home against Trinity is one of my favorite memories of all time. Winning was awesome, but my favorite part was the huge student student section that showed up to cheer us on. 

Fenwick experience that changed you the most: I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to take Italian at Fenwick. Ms. Hennessey and the little group of Italian students that were in class together for four years were so special that I decided to try an Italian class my first semester at Wisconsin. I have met so many incredible people in the Italian program here and have declared a double major in the language. Italian has played a huge role in my positive experience at Madison, and it would not have been possible if I didn’t have the opportunity to study Italian in high school.
