The scholarship is dedicated in memory of Katelyn Klepitsch, niece of OCSA board member Kurt Klepitsch, DVM.
At the age of 20, Katelyn passed away from ovarian cancer in August of 2013. A very special young lady who enchanted everyone she met, her Uncle Kurt, father Karl and many members of the immediate family continue to support OCSA’s mission. Katelyn’s Grandmother Carolyn Klepitsch and Kurt’s Mother-In-Law Mae Novak volunteer at OCSA Dog Walks and Golf Outings. Their participation is very special for all of us. In addition, OCSA’s official headquarters now reside at Kurt’s Gateway Veterinary Clinic in St. Charles, IL.
