Alumna of the Year Award Presentation

The Distinguished Alumna of the Year Award is presented to someone who has successfully pursued a life that reflects the values of Christian leadership and commitment to community.

The first Distinguished Alumna of the Year award was presented to Patricia White Radle ’65 in 1987. Since then, the award has been given annually to a Holy Child alumna for outstanding service to the community, for fortitude, and a commitment to improving the quality of life of others and for exemplifying the ideals and character of our founder, Cornelia Connelly.

All alumnae are encouraged to nominate a candidate for this award. The recipient is selected after review of the nomination forms. The award will be presented to the recipient at this year’s GIRLS NIGHT OUT, Friday, April 24 during Alumnae Weekend 2020. Click here to submit your nomination for this award. All nominations must be submitted by February 21, 2020.
