Transcript THE JOE KOPPEL AWARD In July of 1944, while practicing landings on an Aircraft Carrier off the coast of Virginia, a young man, rather than risk the lives of others, crashed his plane into the Atlantic Ocean, never to be recovered. That young man was JOE KOPPEL. Joe was one of the founders of the Fiesta. He worked as a staff member in the initial production in 1940, and was elected by the student body as general chairman for the second production the following year. Under his direction, the fabulous beard growing contest was born and his energetic leadership inspired the production of many musical shows that year. Needless to say, the success of the 1941 production was on the minds of thousands of Houstonians and its 21-year-old director was the most respected and loved student on the campus that year. When the war broke out some seven months after the show closed, Joe entered the Naval Air Force and soon earned his wings. In honor of Joe Koppel, the University of Houston Alumni Association gives an award in his name to the show judged best on the midway. No Fiesta has been presented since 1941 without the name of Joe Koppel respectfully and consistently entering the conversation. As long as there is a Frontier Fiesta that name will live. And that prized possession, the JOE KOPPEL Award, will be forever eagerly sought through the competitive spirit which has truly made the Frontier Fiesta "The Greatest College Show On Earth."
