Alumnae Board

The Alumnae Board is a group of up to 20 alumnae who represent Mount St. Mary Academy's community of graduates. 

These volunteers provide support to the school and its surrounding community, as well as working to engage alumnae of all decades, near and far. 

The Alumnae Board also governs the Alumnae Scholarship Fund, a means of financial assistance awarded each year to the relative of an alumna. The Board sponsors these four-year awards by fundraising, and oversees the award selection process. Additionally, the Alumnae Board assists the school in its endeavors, offering support and volunteerism as needed.
