Klopp Award

 

Beth Klopp, a 1987 St. James graduate, loved sports, excelled academically, and had a positive attitude toward her teammates, opponents, and coaches. At SJS, she participated in volleyball, basketball, softball, and cheerleading. She went on to play three sports in high school, and although she was never the star player, her coaches and teammates always appreciated her for her effort and competitive spirit. At St. Viator High School, she won several “Lion Awards” for her efforts and team spirit. Beth passed away, at the age of 31, after a brave battle with cancer. Throughout her life, she showed a love of team sports and a caring attitude toward her teammates.

In honor of Beth Klopp, a sportsmanship award is presented to a graduating 8th grade girl and boy who is selected by the coaches and Athletic Board for his/her participation in athletics with the following criteria:
