CAPPS Hall of Fame STAR Awards

CAPPS created the CAPPS Hall of Fame STAR Awards in 2009 to honor its dedicated members. Recipients of the STAR Awards, who over the years have been so generous with their time and resources, have helped CAPPS grow into the sector leader that it is today. With their leadership and “can do” attitude, our sector in California has grown to be more than 400,000 students strong with over 2,000 schools.
