Gretchen Revering, a 2015 Alexandria Area High School graduate, is a federal agent and has been working as a U.S. Capitol Police Officer for nearly two years.

She was apparently working yesterday, Wednesday, Jan. 6, after protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol. Friends and family were posting on social media yesterday asking for prayers for Revering knowing she worked at the Capitol.

In a post on her personal Facebook page shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday, Revering wrote, "I'm okay. Thank you for the prayers."

The Echo Press has reached out to Revering, along with her mother, Jennifer Revering, who lives in Alexandria.
