Katrina Clapp

2001 South Tahoe High School graduate Katrina Clapp graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in June. She was able to graduate in just four years with a double major – a B.A. in global studies and a B.A. in business economics, with an emphasis in accounting. Despite her heavy load she was able to graduate with honors.

Clapp follows in the footsteps of her brother, Johann, and sister, Faye, also University of California graduates. Johann, a 1995 STHS graduate, earned his B.A. from the University of California, Irvine in 1999, and Faye, a 1998 STHS graduate, earned her B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2002.

Katrina has accepted the Eras Mundos Scholarship from the European Union to study for her master’s degree in Europe. She is one of only a few Americans picked to participate in the two-year program for world affairs. She will be studying with an elite group of students chosen from applicants around the world.

Katrina began her first year of study in October at the University of Leipzig in Germany. She will complete the program with a second year of study at the University of Vienna in Austria. Upon successful completion of the program she will be awarded a master’s in global relations.
