More than 100 amazing Stuart women returned on Saturday for Alumnae Weekend to celebrate 56 years of leading with heart. Alumnae Director Alicia Fruscione Walker '98 put together an inspiring weekend for our alumnae that included a Friday evening reception for alumnae and their parents, a prayer service led by Marty Arsenault, a tour with Tony, a project in the MakerSpace with Alicia Testa, and a wellness talk with Samantha Ryan and Jan Baldwin before attendees gathered for the annual Alumnae Awards Luncheon and Athletics Hall of Fame Induction.
Stuart is proud to have more than 1,400 alumnae, each of whom is a testament to the school’s educational mission and Sacred Heart philosophy. Stuart alumnae take dynamic roles in their communities at large, professionally, socially and personally.
Allysa Dittmar '10, co-founder of ClearMask, attended Stuart from kindergarten through graduation. During her time at Stuart she excelled in the classroom and beyond. Allysa was the recipient of the Janet Stuart Scholarship, a four-year merit scholarship presented to two rising ninth grade students, based on academic accomplishments, teacher recommendations, and standardized test scores. Allysa was also awarded the Yale Book Award, the English Department Prize, and the Janet Erskine Stuart Award.
On Friday, we had the pleasure to welcome back eight inspirational alumnae to campus to meet with our Middle and Upper School students. These phenomenal women who work in the fields of education, law, tech, medicine, management consulting, global research and development, and engineering, discussed their careers and the impact Stuart has had on their lives with our girls.
On Wednesday, February 27, the entire school lined the halls to cheer on the Class of 2019 for the 100 Days to Graduation celebration. This annual Stuart tradition is the day when the seniors are officially welcomed into the Stuart Alumnae Association, the national organization of The Associated Alumnae/i of the Sacred Heart (AASH), and the world organization of Association Mondiale des Anciennes du Sacre Coeur (AMASC).
