Jonathan Prather ’00

I was born and raised in Maryland.  Before Prep, I spent a lot of time in the pool and traipsing through the woods behind my parents’ house in Silver Spring.  We spent a lot of time in the summers crabbing and fishing on the Patuxent and I grew up with a strong affinity for the water.  That love of most things nautical is what led me to choose the Naval Academy and a career in the Naval service. Read More.
