Alumna of the Year

In 1987, the first Alumna of the Year Award was presented to Patricia White Radle, class of 1965. Since then, every year, the award has been given to a Holy Child alumna for outstanding service to the community, for fortitude and commitment to improving the quality of life of others, and for exemplifying the ideals and character of Connelly School of the Holy Child.

Alumnae are encouraged to nominate a candidate for the Alumna of the Year Award. The recipient is selected by the Alumnae Council and approved by the Head of School.

The recipient will be awarded at the Alumnae Weekend in April. If you wish to nominate an alumna to receive the Alumna of the Year Award, please submit your suggestion to Suzi Montes de Oca.
