After college, Pierucci taught science and special education for eight years before shifting gears to the administrative side of education. He worked his way up the ranks before becoming superintendent in 1999. Since then, he’s lead the charge to help the district successfully navigate though unprecedented growth in student population. All the while, Pierucci continued volunteering his time with the Rotary Club of Roseville and numerous other community organizations, including six years served on the board of the Child Abuse Prevention Fund (now KidsFirst).
Pierucci will retire from his role as superintendent in July, but he looks forward to spending more time with his wife, six children and two grandchildren. Even as this chapter in life ends, he isn’t done making a difference. “I want to keep self-actualizing,” Pierucci shares. “To grow as a person, and as a human being.”
