Brooklyn School Boasts Famous Graduates in Washington


— January 25, 2007

[M]adison [High School] is most likely the only alma mater that can boast three sitting U.S. senators — a Republican, a Democrat and an Independent, along with a Supreme Court justice — in the pages of its yearbook.

“When Ruth Bader Ginsburg was at Madison — of course, you’re quite familiar with the look that she cultivates — would you believe that she was cheerleader?” said Steve Slavin, a 1959 Madison graduate, referring to the now-bookish-looking Supreme Court justice.

Sandy Roche, class of 1950, couldn’t believe it. That is, until she cracked the spine of her old yearbook.

“It says she was twirler, so I guess she was a cheerleader. Oh my goodness,” said Roche who knew Ginsburg, also class of 1950, by her nickname, Kiki. Roche and others from her time remembered Ginsburg as “very popular and attractive.”
