About the Spirit of Saint Angela Alumnae Award
The Ursuline Academy Spirit of Saint Angela Alumnae Award has been established to honor alumnae whose life, work, and dedication to the service of others demonstrates a strong integration of the Ursuline mission with the courage, kindness, and humility of Saint Angela. Award recipients will embody the spirit of St. Angela Merici and exemplify the values of respect, compassion, intellectual curiosity, faith, and integrity in their personal and professional lives.

Award Criteria
Award recipients will be any alumnae of Ursuline Academy who have distinguished themselves by significant professional achievements or outstanding community service. Their accomplishments and contributions should be notable as ones that defy expectations and help move the world to a better place. Recipients will be women of courage whose lives and actions embody the spirit of St. Angela - those who have gone above and beyond to make a positive impact in their communities, and who live by ethical standards and the guiding principle of Serviam.
