Ghost Stories

July 29, 2016




A group of 11 Holy Ghost Prep rising seniors traveled to New York City and met with Wall Street executives (all with HGP ties) from July 12-14 as part of their finance and investment course. The nine-week course, taught by Tom Murtaugh, combines in-class lectures and class trips, the latter of which allows Holy Ghost students the opportunity to learn high finance from experts in the field.
