Alumnae Awards

Alumnae Awards are one of the highest honors graduates of National Cathedral School can receive from their alma mater. For many years, NCS bestowed the following awards on alumnae: Professional Achievement, Young Professional Achievement, Volunteer Achievement, Young Volunteer Achievement, and the Bettie Warner Thompson ’46 Lifetime Achievement Award.  
This year, in an effort to broaden what we wish to recognize as an institution and to better align with the values of our mission, the Alumnae Office will give awards for each of the values we strive to instill and uphold at NCS, which are outlined in the NCS Mission Statement: excellence, service, courage, and conscience. We will continue to bestow upon one deserving alumna the Bettie Warner Thompson ’46 Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes unparalleled commitment to NCS.

  • Bettie Warner Thompson ’46 Lifetime Achievement Award
