All nominees must demonstrate the following characteristics:

  1. Service to Maryvale is the top criterion.
  2. No alumna may be considered for selection until 10 years after graduation.
  3. The nominee must have been or still be involved with the school as an advocate, benefactor, including but not limited to, the Alumnae Association, the Board of Trustees, annual giving, endowments, capital campaigns or as a faculty or staff member or coach.
  4. The recipient must be a well respected member of her community as a professional or volunteer.
  5. The committee must give consideration for the recipient’s future involvement and/or development in the school’s long-range plans.
