Harvard Model Congress
Twelve students participated in the Harvard Model Congress in Boston. Over 1500 delegates participated in what is the largest congressional simulation in the world. Two Prep students earned Best Delegate honors (more commonly known as “The Gavel”) for their committee work: senior Josh Kramer received the Best Delegate Award for his performance on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and junior Andrew Butler earned the Gavel on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. This is Josh's second gavel in as many years.
Three students also earned Honorable Mention recognition: senior Matthew Lemar on the Senate Finance Committee, junior Quinn Cote on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and sophomore Patrick Kealey on the House Financial Services Committee.
Other members of Prep’s delegation included juniors Noah Guzinski, Ben Kramer, and Jackson Morris, and sophomores William Bolay, Chris Kim, Kevin Lee, and Daniel Meyer. Congratulations to these young men for representing Prep and themselves very well.

Help Make BASH Is Golden a Success
Bash Is Golden "Celebrating 50 Years of Building A Scholastic Heritage" will be held in the Heider Center at Creighton Prep on Saturday, April 25, just 57 days away as of today.
The monies raised during BASH are a key component in our ability to keep tuition affordable for everyone and to provide $2.5 million annually in financial assistance to approximately 52 percent of our students. Plus, BASH is a great way to meet new people and get involved with the Prep community.
BASH is a big undertaking, but with the help of our Prep community members, we come together each year to put together a successful event in support of our students – and have a little fun along the way!
