January 15, 2012
From staff reports , The Herald-Star

Weirton native Camden Nogay was part of a team from Dartmouth College that argued before the Federal Reserve in Boston, competing against other Ivy League schools and other colleges in the Fed Challenge.

The Fed Challenge is a team competition for college undergraduates that promotes in-depth analysis of the Federal Reserve's monetary policy decisions in relationship to the U.S. macro economy. Dartmouth's argument before the Federal Reserve dealt with policy options and proposed innovative Unemployment Rate Targeting for the Federal Reserve to pursue in the coming year.

Dartmouth finished second in its group to the eventual national champion, Harvard. Nogay, a junior at Dartmouth, was the only non-senior competing in the event for his school.

Nogay graduated from Brooke High School in 2009 with a 4.0 grade-point average. He was president of the school's National Honor Society and was captain and a two-year letter winner on the men's basketball team.

Named to Dartmouth's College Honors List for academic achievement, Nogay is an editor of the Dartmouth Business Journal, authoring an article published in the spring 2010 issue entitled "Pittsburgh 2.0" analyzing the evolution of Pittsburgh's economy. He also was an associate editor for the Dartmouth Law Journal. He was hired this winter as an investment banking analyst intern with the firm of Sperry, Mitchell and Co. in New York City.

He is the son of Cathy and Joe Nagy of Weirton.
