Seven Patrick Henry College students and alumni have the distinct honor of being nominated for the Network of Enlightened Women’s 2018 Gentlemen Showcase.

It's a competition that honors young men for integrity and servanthood — and awards $1,000 to the winner’s charity of choice. Anyone can nominate a young man for the contest, and it's divided into two categories, "College Gents" and "Gents Under 30." PHC already boasts one winner, Bryant Condrey ('12), who won in 2011 when he was a junior at the College.
