Stoneleigh-Burnham School alumnae strive to live with purpose and meaning. They inspire and challenge others around them to enrich their communities and the world. They distinguish themselves in myriad ways, reimagining the limits of their own potential.

To honor alumnae who have stood out amongst their peers, Stoneleigh-Burnham School created the Distinguished Alumna Award in 2010. This award is presented annually and bestows institutional recognition on one alumna who has distinguished herself in her personal or professional life, in her intellectual pursuits, or in her dedication to service of community, country or society. The Distinguished Alumna Award serves also to inspire the entire Stoneleigh-Burnham School community—students, alumnae, staff and faculty alike—to strive ‘to become their best selves’ in their pursuit of a meaningful life.

To nominate and alumna for this award, please email Kathleen Tuck Fontaine ’83 at
