Alumnae Awards

Honoring Outstanding Alumnae
The Ursuline Academy Alumnae Association honors several alumnae each year as the recipients of the following awards:
  • Distinguished Alumna Award recipient is a graduate who is recognized as a leader in her chosen field and who reflects the Christian ideals, standards, and objectives of the Academy.
  • Serviam Alumna Award honors a graduate who best embodies the Serviam volunteer spirit of Ursuline Academy. By the quality of her life and spirit, she exemplifies the Christian ideals of her Ursuline education in her service.
  • Young Alumna Award recipient has graduated in the last 15 years who, through her service, leadership, and achievements has made outstanding commitments within her community and/or profession.
  • Ursula Laurus Award was created to honor an alumna whose life example of commitment – a generous giving of time and resources to a community in need on a national level merits this honor and more!
  • The Sister Marie Staats Award honors a member of the Ursuline family, male or female, who has shown an outstanding commitment and tireless service to Ursuline Academy or its Alumnae Association. Such individual’s service and commitment should have deeply and positively affected the Ursuline Community.
