This spring the inaugural JESPY Awards will be held to highlight the athletic achievements of the year and open the JSerra Catholic High School Athletics Hall of Fame.
A JESPY Award (JSerra Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award) is an accolade currently presented by the JSerra Athletics Department to recognize individual and team athletic achievement as well as other sports-related performance during the calendar year preceding a given annual ceremony.
The JSerra Catholic High School Athletics Hall of Fame will open with the first class of inductees honoring the achievements and contributions of alumni, boosters, and community members who have played an integral role in the history of JSerra Athletics.
The event will take place from 5:00-7:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 27, 2021 and kick off graduation weekend festivities! This year we are blessed to have legendary Olympian Janet Evans as our keynote speaker for the event and former NFL quarterback Steve Beuerlein as Master of Ceremonies. The event will take place on our Main Field.
Doors open to the main event at 3:30 p.m. to enjoy food trucks (3:30-4:45 p.m.), walk the red carpet, and take photos with the JESPY step and repeat backdrop.
Attire for the event is California Chic.
Event sponsors at $5,000 and above are welcome to a meet and greet on the JSerra Pool Deck from 3:30-4:45 p.m. This special gathering will include an interview between our keynote speaker Janet Evans and our Master of Ceremonies Steve Beuerlein, heavy appetizers, adult beverages, and plenty of poolside fun!
