Robert Knapp is president of Kapaun Mount Carmel High School. His title was incorrect in an earlier version of this story.
Robert Knapp had a very successful career as a lawyer with Koch Industries – until last year.
Ten months ago, he left Koch to become president of Kapaun Mount Carmel High School. He brought with him a deeply Catholic heart and a Koch-trained eye toward instilling an entrepreneurial spirit in the school’s culture.
Born and raised in Wichita, the 49-year-old Knapp graduated from Kapaun Mount Carmel and later the University of Kansas and its law school. His last position with Koch was chief counsel for Invista’s Intermediates business. He is married to Becky and they have five children.
