Scholar-Athlete Alumnus Inducted Into Ohio Lacrosse Foundation Hall of Fame
Ron Klawitter ’73 became the first Tiger men’s lacrosse player to gain entry into the Ohio Lacrosse Foundation Hall of Fame when he was inducted during a dinner and ceremony, June 13, at The Ohio State University.
Klawitter was one of five members of the class of 2009 to be inducted into the Ohio Lacrosse Foundation Hall of Fame, founded in 1994. Female and male high school All-America honorees were also recognized during the event.
Just the second two-sport All-American in Wittenberg history, Klawitter was a standout in both football and lacrosse. As a linebacker, he was a second-team Associated Press Little All-America and a first-team Lutheran All-America honoree as a senior on the 1972 squad. In addition, he earned the Hank Critchfield Award, and he earned Most Valuable Player honors in the All-Ohio Shrine Bowl following the season.
A CPA, Klawitter currently serves as the executive vice president of administration, CFO and treasurer of Key Tronics Corp in Spokane, Wash., and he has held several other senior leadership roles in a career that reflects not only the discipline required in athletics, but also the strong academic foundation he received at Wittenberg.
