In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the John McGovern, ’80 Alumni Basketball Tournament, the Prep Alumni Association is excited to launch a brand new event for all Prep graduates and families! On Thursday, March 21, we invite you to make your way back to Prep, as we join together in the Siperstein Library for a viewing of the NCAA Tournament’s first round games, officially kicking off March Madness!
A member of the Prep Basketball Team from 1976 to 1980, John McGovern, ’80 passed away suddenly in 1988. John Feeney, ’80, a classmate and friend of John McGovern’s, played an integral role in the creation of the McGovern Scholarship and 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament in the mid 90’s. Although the tournament is no longer running, the scholarship is still thriving and continues to support a Prep student throughout his four years at Grand & Warren.
What better way to celebrate John McGovern’s legacy than enjoying a night of college basketball and Prep pride? Register today for the 2019 McGovern March Madness viewing party, which includes an open bar, heavy appetizer buffet and a viewing of the games on multiple screens. Admission is $40 per person. All proceeds will go to the John McGovern, ’80 Scholarship.
