BGA Inducts New Hall of Fame Members During Homecoming Weekend
On Saturday, October 2, Battle Ground Academy inducted five new members into its Alumni Hall of Fame and Athletic Hall of Fame. In addition, the school honored Peter Kropp, Ph.D. as its Distinguished Young Alumnus in a ceremony held at BGA’s Sondra Morris and Robert N. Moore, Jr. ’52 Center for Arts and Entrepreneurship as part of the school’s Homecoming Weekend festivities.

“Honoring new Hall of Fame members is always a highlight of the year at BGA,” said Head of School Will Kesler. “The class of 2020 had to wait a bit due to COVID, but we are proud to have them join fellow alumni in this prestigious group. In their remarks, each inductee spoke to the instrumental role BGA teachers, coaches, and peers played in their success at BGA and beyond. Our honorees and their accomplishments reflect the influence that our environment and our teachers have on their students."
