After graduating from high school, Mr. Petrilock went to Penn State, received a Bachelor's degree in Art and began a long teaching career with Bristol Township as their art teacher at the high school level. When Bristol High School closed, he went on to teach at the elementary level. He retired after 40 years of teaching within the district.

During this time, Mr. Petrilock continued his education obtaining a Master's Degree and also working toward a Doctorate.
