Maritime Lieutenant Scores Olympic Medalist

Michelle Kwan, a two-time Olympic medalist, married LT Clay Pell of the United States Coast Guard. The wedding was the usual star-studded affair:

About 250 guests attended the ceremony, including Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee and his wife, Stephani, as well as Olympic champions Brian Boitano, Dick Button and Dorothy Hamill,

Pell, a 31-year-old JAG lawyer and Coast Guard lieutenant, works on the White House’s national security staff.

He is the grandson of the late Rhode Island Sen. Claiborne Pell, who reportedly established Pell Grants to assist college students with in paying their tuition 40 years ago.

Kwan is a public policy envoy with the U.S. State Department and the most decorated figure skater in American history.

She won 43 championships, including five World titles, nine national crowns, as well as the silver medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics and bronze at the 2002 Games.

I wonder if he received a Pell Grant in college? Good job and many blessings, Coastie. (Congrats too, to Michelle Pell for the maritime move. I hear those Coast Guard types are very good at search and seizure operations.)
