Five included in Benjamin School’s inaugural Hall of Fame class 

By Matt Porter

Benjamin has created a Hall of Fame to honor members of its athletic community, and five members are part of the Class of 2010.

The inductees are:

* Marshall Benjamin, who with his wife, Nancy, founded the school as the North Palm Beach Private School in 1960. He passed away in 1985.

* Olympic gold medal swimmer Ryan Berube (Class of ’92). He won gold in the 800 free relay at the 1996 Games, the same year he was NCAA Swimmer of the Year.

* Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus and his wife, Barbara, who are parents, grandparents and longtime supporters of the school. Their grandson, Charlie, is a sophomore running back for the Bucs.

* Runner Julian Reynolds Clay (’95). Clay, 32, was a four-time All-American at Georgetown, and a gold medalist (4×400 relay) representing the U.S. at the 2003 Pan American Games.

All will be recognized at halftime of Benjamin’s Fri., Oct. 1 game against St. Andrew’s.
