Kamnikar Award Winners

On June 14, 1960, John Kamnikar was killed in a car accident.  The accident occurred two months before John's senior year at Johnstown High School.  John was the quarterback for the Trojan football team and he was in the top ten of his class.  To honor his memory, the football coaches decided to present an annual award to a senior athlete with the highest academic standing.  (Source:  Various editions of The Spectator)
