Senior, Zachary Barberich, was selected to represent Saint John's Catholic Prep at Maryland Boys State 2017, a nationwide leadership and government program run by the American Legion. It was held at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland from Sunday, June 18 - Saturday, June 24 attended by nearly 200 boys, chosen from high schools around the state. One of the highlights was a trip to the State House in Annapolis where they sat in the Senate Chambers. Many famous people have passed through the Boys State program including Bill Clinton, Scott Walker, Michael Jordan, Jon Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Brokaw, Garth Brooks, Neil Armstrong, Phil Jackson, and Robert Griffin III, to name a few. It was a demanding week; up at 5 am each day and working until lights out at 10:30 pm, but it was an experience they will never forget!
