While everyone may be buzzing about Warren Buffett’s speech at the Economic Club of Washington yesterday, many are overlooking the fact that the genius investor also took time to visit his old junior high and high school while he was in the Washington D.C. area.
Buffett was spotted at Alice Deal Junior High and Woodrow Wilson High School, both in the D.C. area, according to the Washington Post. He told reporters that he was there for his 65th high school reunion. Although Buffett calls Omaha his hometown, he grew up in the Washington D.C. area when his father served as a Congressman.
The D.C. Public School System were quick to promote the Oracle of Omaha’s presence via Twitter, and sent out an instagrammed photo of Buffett touring Woodrow Wilson High with principal Pete Cahall.
The tweet also added that Buffett’s high school yearbook photo read “likes maths: a future stock broker.”
Considering Buffett was thinking of ways to make money and picking stocks by the time he was 11, we aren’t surprised that his future investing career already came through in high school.
