BGA HOF Class of 2021

Battle Ground Academy's alumni and sports hall of fame class of 2021.

Battle Ground Academy inducted five new members into its Alumni Hall of Fame and Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday, Oct. 2, and 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,” BGA Head of School Will Kesler said. “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.”

Honorees included:

Alumni Hall of Fame: Wallace Edward Lunn (deceased), Class of 1967; Houston Moran, M.D., Class of 1971; Rondal Keith Richardson, Class of 1987

Sports Hall of Fame: Susannah Ives Dennis, Class of 2009; Maurice Lamont Turner, Class of 1996 

Distinguished Young Alumnus: Peter A. Kropp, Ph.D., Class of 2008

Local sports radio personality and BGA graduate George Plaster ’77 served as emcee for the event. Alumni Association President Sterling Smith ’84 welcomed guests. 

Established in 1889, Battle Ground Academy is a coeducational, college preparatory school for grades kindergarten through 12th grade. More information on the school can be found at
