About the Award

Recognizes graduates in schools sponsored by or affiliated with the Sisters of Notre Dame, as being outstanding witnesses to Notre Dame education. 

The award is usually given to one graduating student, either an eighth grader or a senior. In co-educational institutions, the option exists to give the award to both a girl and a boy.

The names of the award recipients are recorded each year in a book kept in the SND Motherhouse in Rome, Italy. It is placed on the altar dedicated to Sr. Maria Aloysia, the founder of the Coesfeld SNDs and an outstanding educator. Many Distinguished Graduates have enjoyed visiting the book and they are always welcome to do so.


Academic: Grade point average of 3.0 or the equivalent standard of excellence.

Service: Witness to God’s goodness and provident care through outreach to those in need, in the school or the community at large.

Practice of Faith: Regular participation in student’s faith community; strives to live Gospel values in daily life.
