The Jesuit Mother’s Luncheon brings together mothers of alumni and mothers of current students to celebrate the gift that Jesuit mothers are, have been, and continue to be to the community. Five women, in particular, were honored with the Alma Mater Award for their special contributions of time and talent, which have shaped school culture in tremendous ways.

The honorees for the 2020-2021 Alma Mater Awards are Karen DeBlieux, Wanda Montalbano, Vonda Rice, Lori Ryan, and Jill Stoner.
