Popp receives alumni award

L’ANSE – Ford Motor Company Executive Rick Popp has been chosen as Sacred Heart School’s Distinguished Alumnus for 2017. This award is given each year to a SHS alum that evangelizes through his/her life and shows exactly what it means to live their faith, as well as give back to one’s community.

Mr. Popp attended Sacred Heart School from first grade in 1971 through fifth grade, leaving in the summer of 1976. His family then moved to Iron Mountain, where he attended Dickinson Area Catholic School (now Bishop Baraga Catholic School) from sixth through eighth grades.

Popp works for Ford Motor Company as Director of Human Resources for Global Marketing, Sales, and Service (MS&S), Corporate Communications, and Government & Community Relations (G&CR), a continually growing role that he was first appointed in October 2013.
