Bernie & Donovan on graduation day May 9, 2013.

Mt. Edgecumbe High School’s Academic Principal Bernie Gurule’s philosophy is to enjoy every day…and see as much live music as possible! Clearly a music lover, Bernie brought ten great songs to his “deserted island”, along with some great stories and not just a dessert recipe but an actual, wonderfully real lemon meringue pie. (Thanks Terri! It was delicious!).

Listen!

Bernie’s Song List
You Can’t Always Get What You Want- the Rolling Stones
Center Field- John Fogerty
Midnight Special- Credence Clearwater Revival
Light My Fire- The Doors
I Shot the Sheriff- Eric Clapton
Ina Gadda de Vida- Iron Butterfly
Moon Dance – Van Morrison
When a Man Loves a Women- Percy Sledge
Many Rivers to Cross- Jimmy Cliff (Harder They Come – album)
Imagine- John Lennon

Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe
The meringue recipe is as follows:
Take three egg whites and beat with mixer until slightly foamy. Gradually add 1/3 cup sugar while beating. Continue beating until stiff peaks form. With a spatula, spread meringue over pie filling making sure to “seal” it all the way to the edges of the pie crust to prevent shrinkage. Bake at 350 degrees until peaks are golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.
