Trevon Anthony Marshall '22 received the Gregory F. Gannon '68 Award at Georgetown Prep's all-school Thanksgiving Mass on November 23, 2021.
Gregory F. Gannon, a member of the Class of 1968, demonstrated a commitment to Christian Service throughout his time at Georgetown Prep, and took that spirit of service to his life at the University of Notre Dame, and his subsequent professional life as a teacher, as the founder of the Washington Higher Achievement Program, his work for Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington, and his commitment to his parish and his family.
In honor of their 50th Jubilee, the Class of 1968, joined by the Class of 1969, created the Gregory F. Gannon '68 Award, in memory of their classmate and friend, to be bestowed on that rising senior, who through his dedication to our service program and whose growth as a man for and with others reflects the spirit with which Greg Gannon lived his life.
Rev. James R. Van Dyke, S.J., President of Georgetown Prep, announced the award at the end of Mass. Trevon was selected for the Gannon Award this year for amply demonstrating such a commitment in his service with the Love in Action Leadership Program, the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation Service Immersion, the Year of Solidarity Committee, the Ignatian Family Teach-in Delegation, and the Black Students Association, as well with his teammates on the court and the track. Mr. Chris Rodriguez, Prep's Dean of Students, reflected on Trevon by stating, "This young man is one of the least selfish students I've met. He's front and center."
Congratulations to Trevon Anthony Marshall '22.
