9 HGP seniors recognized at early-decision acceptance ceremony
During the Feb. 6 morning meeting, nine members of Holy Ghost Prep’s Class of 2018 were recognized in front of the entire student body for recently receiving early-decision acceptance into some of the country’s most prestigious universities.
Early decision plans are binding—a student who is accepted as an early-decision applicant must attend that college.
"We begin a new tradition today at Holy Ghost Prep, where we will recognize those students who applied early decision to a college or university and were accepted," said Holy Ghost Prep president Gregory J. Geruson '79 at the school's first-ever early-decision acceptance ceremony. "We are so proud of these young men."
The nine Holy Ghost seniors, in alphabetical order, who earned early-decision acceptance were:
Corry Arnold Boston University
Grayson Bautz College of the Holy Cross
Ryan Callahan Emory University (Emory College)
Eric D’Angelo University of Pennsylvania (College of Arts and Sciences)
Connor Fife Gettysburg College
Brian Gabriele Johns Hopkins University
Matthew Hofmann University of Pennsylvania (School of Engineering and Applied Science’s VIPER program)
Aleks Seibel Lafayette College
Mark Seibert Gettysburg College
“I am extremely proud of these eight Holy Ghost students who gained early-decision acceptance into premier colleges and universities,” said AnnMarie Dougherty, the director of college guidance at Holy Ghost Prep. “They are all prepared to make a difference within their college communities, just like they are doing in ours.”
