Santa Catalina Athletic Director Paul Elliott has been honored with KSBW's Golden Whistle Award. The award is given once per athletic season to a coach who demonstrates the qualities that are most important to transforming their players' lives.
Coach Elliott was presented the award in a surprise ceremony on November 16 in Bedford Gymnasium. The Upper School girls and Middle School boys volleyball teams were there to cheer him on, along with faculty, staff, and family. "I am very grateful to have the opportunity to work with such great students and staff at Santa Catalina, and then to be given an award for it, is unreal," he says.
Whether he's coaching a powerhouse volleyball team or teaching PE to PreK, Elliott approaches his work with enthusiasm, dedication, and a genuine interest in his students' lives. Congratulations, Coach!
The award is presented by Taylor Farms in cooperation with Transformational Coaches of Monterey County and the Central Coast Section of the California Interscholastic Federation.
