Seeking Nominations for the Inspirational Mentor Award  

As alumnae of Carondelet, we received a stellar educational foundation through the efforts of amazing instructors who inspired us to reach beyond what we ever thought possible. These teachers helped mold us into the women we are today with their compassion and constant encouragement - shaping us into women of heart, faith, and courage. 

Which of your teachers at Carondelet made the biggest difference in your life? Who inspired you the most to be all that woman is capable? Honor those mentors with your nomination!

We will celebrate this honoree and the Alumna of the Year at a special reception held during Sisterhood Week in March 2019.
