St. Kate's Alumni Awards

    Recognize an Exceptional Alumna or Alumnus

    Each year, St. Catherine University recognizes outstanding graduates who demonstrate:

    • excellence in leadership
    • service to others
    • an influential role in home, profession, community, church or volunteer activities
    • the ideals of the University.

    St. Kate's also recognizes young alumni making a difference with the Rising Star Award. Nominations for St. Kate's alumni who have graduated in the last 15 years (2004–2018) will be considered for the Rising Star Award.

    A committee selects outstanding leaders, from those nominated, to receive awards. Award-recipients receive a citation and a specially designed silver pin in the shape of the Catherine Wheel, one of the unique symbols of the University.

    Award winners will be honored at Evening with the President in spring 2019.
