A student-veteran remembers

Senior Giuseppe Pellicano remembers fallen soldiers through his art.

As the country pauses to remember its military heroes over Memorial Day, one North Central College student-veteran found his own way to pay tribute to soldiers lost in war. Giuseppe Pellicano ’12 of Naperville crafts military boots that memorialize soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. He receives requests from family members for the boots and personalizes them with the soldiers’ names, ranks and dates of their death. He received a Richter Independent Study Fellowship from North Central to help fund his project, titled “Left, Left, Left, Right, Left.”
