I have been fortunate enough to know Br. Tiberio for about 8 years now and consider him a great resource and trusted brother. He is a bright, energetic and proactive individual always giving his great recommendations and suggestions. I especially enjoy it when he corrects my spanish! Did you know that the correct word for alumni in spanish is not alumno, but instead, ex-alumno? I did not know either, thanks Don Tiberio!!!
I am confident many younger brothers will enjoy meeting you and soak up all the knowledge you have!!!!
