Salituro Gets Extra Credit From Former Students
Chris Salituro brought Rikki Himmelfarb and Matt Peota together in his Sociology class about 12 years ago. This weekend, he will be bringing them together again, as man and wife.

Salituro will officiate at the wedding of the 2001 SHS graduates at the Hoosier Grove historic farm and schoolhouse in Streamwood at 5 p.m. Saturday. The couple asked him to officiate at their wedding, and Salituro has obtained a justice of the peace license.

When the two were in his class, Salituro had a lesson in which students were paired up for a role-playing activity in which they pretended to be married. The two didn’t know each other very well at that point, Salituro said, but the lesson obviously took. The pair began dating shortly after that fateful day, continued dating throughout college, and has been together since.
