September 14, 2022

Congratulations to Jeremy Duffie (CES Class of 1992) who recently won the 49th Annual White Marlin Open in Ocean City, MD where he caught a white marlin that weighed 77.5 pounds! You may have heard about this exciting story through USA Today, Bethesda Magazine, WTOP News or the local TV news channels a couple weeks ago.

Jeremy began fishing with his father when he was just two years old, loves deep sea fishing, and started competing when he was a teenager. The win was all the sweeter because Jeremy was fishing with his family, and fishing on a boat that his brother Jon (CES Alum Class of 1993) designed and built. We asked Jeremy if he ate the fish he caught, and he shared that they donated the fish to the local food bank in Worcester County.

Jeremy and his brother Jon both attended CES from Kindergarten through 8th grade. He says his favorite memory of his time at CES is “lasting friendships.” All these years later, he still has lunch with friends he made in Kindergarten! He loved his small school experience at CES and believes “you can start off small, and you can do whatever you want to do.” Congratulations Jeremy!

CES graduates leave with a deep sense of their responsibilities as members of the world community.”
