Seniors Claire Rosenfeld and Jacob Adler were honored with the Harry Glickman Scholar Athlete Award at a ceremony on March 5, 2017 at the Oregon Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. This is the first time two Catlin Gabel students have won the award in the same year.
The Harry Glickman Scholar Athlete Award is given annually to a Jewish male and female high school student in Oregon who “exemplify excellence on the field, in the classroom and in the community.” Award recipients are inducted into the Hall of Fame and receive scholarship funds.
