Students Put "Prep" in Prep School

Junior roommates Daniel Kelley and Spencer Ralston one day discussed their bewilderment over students who continually wore sweatshirts and other relaxed clothing, within the parameters of Cushing’s dress code. Ralston and Kelley felt that mode of dress should reflect the outstanding school and great experience the student is receiving.

So, putting the ‘prep’ back in prep school, Spencer and Dan decided to dress each day in a jacket and tie to demonstrate their readiness for learning. “We decided we needed to break the mold and dress for success; to show that we are prepared and ready.” Ralston said. Kelley added that by reflecting seriousness in his daily attire, he is able to “prove that I want to be here [at Cushing]!”

Well done, gentlemen! And these two truly exemplify that word!
