Marian Awards For Excellence

At St. Mary's Academy, we take pride in our alumnae who model excellence and service in their personal and professional lives.

The Marian Awards For Excellence were instituted by the Academy in 2005 to recognize distinguished alumnae who embrace and exemplify our mission and vision in the community and the world. Our seven member selection committee, made up of alumnae, SNJM leadership, staff, and friends of the Academy, were thrilled with the response of our community in the strength and number of nominations received. We proudly announce the following Marian Award For Excellence recipients being recognized for their outstanding service in the areas of Education, Training and Mentorship, Leadership and Justice.
