President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee listed himself as the treasurer of the “Keg City Club – 100 Kegs or Bust” in his Washington, DC-area high school’s yearbook, The Washington Post reported.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s entry in the Georgetown Preparatory School yearbook also included references to the “Beach Week Ralph Club” and “Rehoboth Police Fan Club.”
Scott McCaleb, a childhood friend of Kavanaugh’s, described the nominee to The Post as studious and “always kind of like an old soul,” however. Georgetown Prep’s website listed Kavanaugh as a member of the basketball team, football team, and school newspaper while in high school.
“He was more mature than the rest of us,” McCaleb said of Kavanaugh in high school. “He was always the guy who was going home to do his homework.”
Kavanaugh moved on to Yale University and Yale Law School before clerking for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, whom he would replace if confirmed. Kavanaugh then worked as an associate counsel for Ken Starr during his investigation of former President Bill Clinton, counsel and staff secretary to former President George W. Bush, and appeals court judge.
Kavanaugh is the latest Georgetown Prep graduate to be nominated by Trump to a high-profile position. Previously, Trump nominated Georgetown Prep grads Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and Jay Powell as Federal Reserve chair.
