New House Speaker Paul Ryan, Miami alum, just helped Miami fulfill a unique Triple Crown


Earlier today, Paul Ryan (R-WI) was elected the Speaker of the House, replacing the departing John Boehner (R-OH). The moment he took the gavel, Speaker Ryan made history... for his alma mater, Miami University. Miami is now the only institution that can claim a Super Bowl winning quarterback (Ben Roethlisberger), a U.S. President (Benjamin Harrsion), and now, a Speaker of the House (Ryan). Other notable political alumni include Charles Anderson (former governor of Ohio), Chung Un-Chan (former prime minister of South Korea) and Donna Shalala (former Secretary of Health and Human Services, current President of University of Miami [FL]).
