SHOUT OUT Cast Spotlight – Peter Lopatin


Our next spotlight …. PETER LOPATIN!

  • What is your educational background? If you’re still in school, what grade/level are you at?  I graduated from Princeton High School, George Washington University (BA) and Boston University (MBA)
  • If you are already employed, what do you do?  I have worked in healthcare most of my professional career – often in strategic planning, business development, and operations. I am currently a Product Manager with CountyCare healthplan.
  • Do you have any favorite teachers? If so, why were they your favorite?  Bill Trego – HS Choir teacher and all around mensch. He was a wonderful combination of extremely high standards and a deep appreciation of laughter.   Mrs. Farley – my fourth grade teacher who inspired my love of history
  • What subject in school was your LEAST favorite and why?  Probably math, which is odd because I work with data all the time in my professional life. I think the disconnect was that in school it was not taught with a sense of relevance, but in my day-to-day work, I apply it and use the numbers to help tell stories about how we can get better at what we do.

Peter comes from a family that has always honored and respected education.  His mother was a Reading Specialist in inner city Trenton, NJ and his father a pharmacist.  Peter works in Health Care as a project manager and considers himself a “life long learner.” He is an advocate for every student having equal opportunities and serves on the boards of Kaneland School District #302 and Kaneland Arts Initiative. He has been seen as an actor in all 6 summer productions of KAI.  He credits his family for teaching him the most.

Peter will be reading his speech, A GOOD Education, on Sunday, October 18th at 3pm.
