Silver Medalist Galen Rupp '04 Visits Central Catholic
Galen Rupp '04, who won a silver medal in the 2012 London Olympics, stopped by his alma mater this morning to talk about his success with the student body. Galen started his day with a Q & A in the Student Activity Center. Central Catholic's current distance runners and Student Council members hung on every word and posed for pictures before heading to the gym for the Homecoming assembly.
After addressing local media, Galen made his way to the New Gym, where he was hoisted to the roof by a scissor lift adorned with patriotic banners. When he addressed the audience, Galen expressed his appreciation for the support he received as a student and encouraged students to follow their dreams. The assembly concluded with a medal ceremony for the dance competition where, of course, Galen Rupp placed the appropriate medal around the necks of the participants.
We would like to thank Galen for his participation in today's events as well as all those who made the day a success.
