Local family hopeful despite setbacks

When Chris Aiello transferred to Los Angeles for work more than a decade ago, he was full of hope, enthusiasm and ambition. He had been working for the multi-billion-dollar Dan Zimmerman Co., an accounting staffing firm, for two years straight out of college.

Aiello, the son of Lou Aiello, a Chestnut Hill Community Association board member and current vice president of its physical division, grew up in Chestnut Hill. He graduated from Our Mother of Consolation grade school and Bishop McDevitt high school and earned a degree in accounting from Temple University.

We considered our duty to play the practical joke: a headline announcing the Hill’s imminent annexation to Montgomery County or that the Local was acquired in a hostile takeover by the Weaver’s Way Shuttle.

RELAY CHAMPION This Chestnut Hill Academy quartet won the distance medley relay in the Brother Jerome Benway Invitational at St. Basil Academy last Saturday. Shown in race order are (from left) juniors Mike Fuery (1200 meters) and Dan Gallagher (400 meters), senior Ryan Ansel (800 meters), and sophomore Dustin Wilson (1600 meters). Two weeks earlier, Wilson had placed fourth in the 5000 meter run at the 2010 Nike Indoor Nationals in Boston. His time (15:12.51) was two seconds off of the national record for a tenth grader, and the three runners who finished ahead of him are all seniors.
