BELLAIRE - On Wednesday, the St. John Central History Club launched the "Eagle Legacy Dinner Series," with a former U.S. Representative giving the keynote address.   

Former rep and St. John alumni Bob Ney talked about his experiences in Washington, D.C. in the address.  

Since his release from federal prison, Ney has avoided the spotlight, but made his first public appearance in support of a school that means a great deal to him. Ney said, "It's not just brick and mortar... but I can almost see people coming up and down this hallway.  The amount of knowledge, and help, and support I received from teachers here was absolutely tremendous.  So, being back here isn't just giving a talk, it's really being a part of my history, part of where I grew up."
