Carondelet’s greatest assets are its people—the alumnae, students, faculty, staff, coaches and friends who have continued our school’s legacy of heart, faith, courage, and excellence.
Together, our community recognizes alumnae and mentors alike for their impact on the world and for their accomplishments and leadership in their professional or vocational fields. This evening of recognition is meant to bring the community together to engage with and support Carondelet.
Alumnae, Cougar fans, and supporters are all invited to our Alumnae Awards and Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Reception on October 1 at 3:00 PM in the Jean Hofmann Center for Innovation. Join us for an evening honoring our esteemed Alumnae at the Carondelet Awards and Hall of Fame Ceremony. We will celebrate the exceptional achievements of our Alumna of the Year and Young Alumna of the Year along with new inductees to the Carondelet Hall of Fame.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds for this engagement-specific event. We are always happy to transfer your ticket to a friend, or you may donate your unused ticket back to Carondelet.
