2024 Alumnae Award

Since 1970, the Alumnae Association has presented the coveted Alumnae Award to an outstanding alumna. The first award was given to Elizabeth M. Curtis ’27, and ever since, Cedar Crest alumna have nominated fellow alums in the following categories:

  • Service to the College and/or the Association
  • Professional achievement
  • Volunteer work
  • Humanitarianism
  • Single exceptional achievement

Make your nomination by Thursday, March 28, 2024. Nominations will be reviewed by members of the Alumnae Award Committee of the Alumnae Association Executive Board and the winner will be announced at Reunion Weekend in June.
 
P.S. Calling all jewelry makers! We have lost, at least temporarily, the vendor who created the gingko leaf pin we present to the award winners. We are seeking a new supplier and thought that one of us might be in this business. If you are interested, or know of someone who might fit the bill, please contact Kim Hanna, a director on the Association's Executive Board, at KHannaRN02@gmail.com. Thanks!
