Distinguished Alumni/ae Award

The Distinguished Alumni/ae Award (DAA) at St. Paul Academy and Summit School honors alumni/ae who have made noteworthy contributions to society through professional or civic accomplishments and involvement. View the list of previous DAA recipients.

The Distinguished Alumni/ae Award program began in 1987 to honor alumni/ae whose achievements reflect major contributions to their chosen fields and/or communities. The program is designed to recognize outstanding role models in the hope that the accomplishments of the Distinguished Alumni/ae will encourage current students to develop high aspirations and goals.

In addition, the Distinguished Alumni/ae Award program helps provide the community with a link to the school’s past. By bringing the stories and achievements of past students into the lives of those presently enrolled, the program fosters a sense of tradition, history, and pride in the school.

Nominations for the award are accepted from all members of the school community. The selection process is conducted by the Alumni/ae Relations Department, along with a committee formed of alumni/ae and current and former representatives of the Board of Trustees. To submit a nomination, please complete this short submission form and your nomination will be reviewed.
