  • President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nomination
    listed himself as the treasurer of the “Keg City Club — 100
    Kegs or Bust” in his high school yearbook.
  • Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s entry also included references
    to the “Beach Week Ralph Club” and “Rehoboth Police Fan
    Club.”

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.
