Prep senior Brennan Newcomb was awarded the Fairfield Police Union Scholarship in the name of Judge Daniel Caruso. The fund was created to honor the life work of Judge Caruso who passed away unexpectedly in February 2018. Caruso, who served as Fairfield Probate Judge, was an advocate for anyone and everyone who needed help in the community. Caruso embodied the spirit of community and civic duty, always putting service above self. He was a man of strong faith and believed in always helping those in need. Due to the generosity of the Fairfield Police Union Scholarship Board Judge Caruso’s legacy is celebrated each year with a scholarship award.
For four years, Brennan has been a scholar, athlete, leader and “Man for Others.” He has always made it a priority to put others needs and the greater good ahead of his own. These qualities have made him a perfect person to lead younger students, from serving as a Shadow Day host his freshman year to a Senior Leader at the annual Freshman Retreat. Brennan appears to have a role in all aspects of Prep life. He has been a dedicated percussionist with the band for four years. He began his athletic career as a coxswain for the crew team. Eventually he moved over to cross country where he served as one of the Captains in senior year. One of his most lasting legacies will be his leadership within Prep’s Environmental Club as co-president, and helping lead an E-Waste drive and school-wide Earth Day community event. As a person of integrity and selflessness, Brennan earned his Eagle Scout Award this past year. Brennan has an all-in attitude with his studies, achieving Summa Cum Laude honors. He will continue his contributions to a school community at Bucknell University in the fall.
