Alumnae Recognition Award
Honors an alumna, who graduated 25 or more years ago, for embodying the values core to Emma Willard’s vision, including a love of learning, intellectual curiosity, and the character, moral strength, and qualities of leadership to serve and shape her world.
This accomplished alumna is an empowered leader in the community, empowering other women to follow in her footsteps. For some nominees, this may mean she has achieved a significant level of achievement and excellence in her field of interest. Perhaps building on a passion or experience first identified at Emma, she is recognized for her expertise and accomplishments, motivating and inspiring others to similarly pursue those interests. For other candidates, this award means that she has engaged in either a professional or personal endeavor with integrity, creativity, smarts, and energy; she has contributed positive, long-lasting change within her community, leading and inspiring others.
