As the cool, summer wind blows through the hallways of a large Tiffany Springs construction site, an old Toyota 4Runner, riddled with empty Redbull cans and Slim Jim wrappers. “I don’t need no money, I just need more tools,” Peter Agnello says under his breath. He steps out onto the dirt parking lot, with his hard hat and tool bag. As a low voltage technician, he installs data and auxiliary cables in a future retirement home. Many view this as weird, but Agnello sees it as a normal day.
Hailing from the great parish of Visitation, Agnello has always been surrounded by his Rockhurst classmates. He spends his weekends eating at various restaurants across the city, his favorite being Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers. Peter enjoys listening to lots of old country and rock, such as Pink Floyd and George Strait. He is also an avid outdoorsman and will be traveling to Wrangell-St. Elias National Park in Alaska for the second time this coming summer. Agnello first went to Alaska in 2017 with the Outdoors Club and described it as a life-changing experience. He is also considering taking part in the TIE Tijuana trip with Rockhurst to fulfill his love of service and helping others. Agnello is a diehard Burt Reynolds fan and spends his rainy days watching movies, such as Smokey and the Bandit and Stroker Ace. From construction to chicken fingers, Peter Agnello is a man of many interests.
