From Catholic Schools to Congress: Grads Serving in U.S. House Celebrate Cincinnati-Area Catholic High SchoolsPosted by Press Office on March 22, 2013
The membership of the new 113th Congress includes no fewer than four members of the U.S. House of Representatives who graduated from Cincinnati-area Catholic high schools: Reps. John Boehner (R-OH), a graduate of Moeller High School; Steve Chabot (R-OH), a graduate of LaSalle High School; Trey Radel (R-FL), a graduate of Elder High School; and Brad Wenstrup (R-OH), a graduate of St. Xavier High School.
The four congressional graduates of Cincinnati-area Catholic schools gathered together March 14 to celebrate the Cincinnati area’s longstanding tradition of excellence in Catholic education, proudly wearing the colors of their respective schools as they joined together for a group photo on the Speaker’s Balcony of the U.S. Capitol.
“I am proud of my Catholic education; it has helped define my character, strengthen my morality and make me the man, husband, father, and grandfather I am,” said Rep. Chabot, who represents Ohio’s First Congressional District. “From my elementary days at Holy Family and St. Catherine's, to my high school years at LaSalle, my Catholic education has cultivated my virtues and taught me to stand up for what I believe is right. It has taught me fortitude, humility and optimism. Quite simply, I would not be the man I am without my Catholic education.”
