This Spring Elizabeth Klemm received a 2018 Graduating Senior Award at the Gold Level. The Graduating Senior Award program, recognizes student-athletes who have worked hard to pursue figure skating while maintaining their academics. While figure skating is not a traditional school sport, it requires the same dedication, perseverance and time management as any varsity sport. It is the goal of U.S. Figure Skating to help ensure these student-athletes are recognized for those skills.
There are four categories of recognition based on competition and test achievements in all disciplines of figure skating. Student-athletes are rewarded based on their highest level of achievement at either the Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze level. Following the application review process, U.S. Figure Skating sends the student-athlete their awards certificate, congratulatory letter and lapel pin.
