Al Schramm Scholarship Award
In 1992, a scholarship award was started in the honor of Al Schramm. Al Schramm was a professor at Loras College from 1939-1981. During his tenure, Schramm not only served as a professor in the department of physical education, but also was chair of the department, intramural director and an athletic coach. Today, the intramural program at Loras is one of the strongest in the United States because of Al Schramm.
The criterion considered by the committee in selecting the recipient of this award exemplifies Al Schramm’s contribution to Loras. The recipient of this award must demonstrate a high level of academic performance, leadership in the field, in community activities, dedication for the development of physical skills, sportsmanship, healthful practices, in addition to moral and emotional growth.
The award is presented annually at the end of the fall semester. The 2013-2014 winner of the Al Schramm award for Sport Management was Kathryn Belanger.
