Outstanding Student-Athletes Honored

As the 2021–22 school year came to a close, St. Stephen’s honored elite athletes for their academic excellence and athletic prowess throughout the last 10 months. At the Closing Awards Ceremony in late May, Athletic Director Jon McCain and Head of Upper School Kim Garey presented the David Paschall Awards, as well as the Academy Academic Excellence Awards. 

The David Paschall Award was created in the spring of 1994 to recognize and honor outstanding accomplishments of students in academics and athletics. It was named in honor of Coach David Paschall, who served as the boys’ athletic director at St. Stephen’s for 29 years. In high school, he lettered in three sports and was valedictorian of his senior class. In college at the University of the South, Paschall was a cum laude graduate and a three-sport letter winner. 

To be eligible for the award, a student must earn a Varsity letter during each term and maintain honor roll status during the fall and winter terms. Congratulations to these outstanding student-athletes.
