On Saturday, June 11, 2022 we were very happy to celebrate Reunion 2022 in person on the beautiful school campus. We welcomed back more than 400 graduates. Current students proudly gave tours of the school, and alumnae marveled at the new spaces that were constructed recently thanks to the ongoing Innovation Campaign.
The reunion liturgy was followed by Dr. Melnyk presenting the St. Angela and St. Ursula awards.
The Saint Angela Award is given to alumnae for their exceptional loyalty and devotion to the school and for furthering the realization of the values and goals of Ursuline education. At Reunion 2022 we bestowed the Saint Angela Award on Barbara Mary Kane O'Neill '65, Mary Angela (Micki) Bellew Kennedy '66, and Catherine Quigley Tammaro '85.
The Saint Ursula Award recognizes alumnae who bring honor to themselves and to The Ursuline School through distinctive achievement in their careers. This year we honored Elizabeth Bisordi '75 and Ashley Sefecka Conklin '00.

Classmates enjoyed reconnecting over cocktails outside on the JB Commons and taking their class photos on the Ring Day steps. Several current and retired faculty, staff and members of administration were in attendance to greet alumnae. Dinner conversations included numerous toasts and cheers and the specially curated playlist featured songs from various decades.
In addition to the fun, alumnae stopped at the scholarship table and donated over $13,000 to the Alumnae Association Scholarship, several other scholarships, and the Annual Fund.
Thank you to the Advancement team for hosting a wonderful evening as alumnae created new Ursuline memories.
