Corr said his teachers called Brescia a “leader of the pack” who could handle data and analytics easily to keep project on track. They also called him a responsible and mature student who was very strong in academics. He was on the Principal’s Honor Roll all four years of high school. He won the Pride of CV award and has never received less than an A in any class. His GPA is 4.518 and he has taken seven Advanced Placement classes.
