The Cardinal

Vincent Patierno
A two-time author, a varsity Cross Country leader, and a member of the Executive Board for the graduating class of 2019, just to name a few, are all accomplishments things that can chronicle Vincent Patierno.

Describing Patierno into a few words is hard for people but, what he puts in outside of school is what makes him Vince.

“I love spending time with my friends and my family as well. I hold them very near to me and they’re always close when I need anything. Whether it’s for a laugh, or to talk and I’m always here as well,” said Patierno.

Aside from that, Patierno possesses a love and interest for politics and journalism.

“I believe that it is my job to inform people as to what is going on around them, so that they can go about their life more educated when it comes to the issues that face them on the daily,” said Patierno.

Patierno appreciates all the love and support from his books to his school work as well as to his athletic career. No matter what it is, he tends to make the best out of it.

He has written two books, The Day to Day Revelation in 2016, and This is Not Real Life in 2017.

Patierno is looking forward to possibly writing more books and pursuing a major in  Journalism and Political Science in the future.

Other than knowing the simple things, Patierno shares a love for JAY-Z and his determination was all it took to end up on stage with the hip-hop legend during his 2017 “4:44 tour” on November 19 at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland--an interesting fact about Patierno: he has seen over 30 concerts throughout his seventeen years and looks forward to many more.
