2014 Women of Excellence Award Ceremony

The tradition of the Women of Excellence Award began in 1993, when the Nerinx Hall Alumnae Association honored Sr. Joanna Marie Steely for her outstanding contributions to Nerinx Hall and the Loretto Community.  Then, in 1997, it was decided to honor fellow alumnae who had distinguished themselves professionally or through volunteerism, and live the Loretto Values of Faith, Community, Justice and Respect.  We are pleased to be honoring these four alumnae this year, as the 2014 Nerinx Hall Women of Excellence:

Barbara Buettner ’59 – Enhancing Nerinx Hall

Rachel Rankin Ebeling ’88 – Community Service

Elizabeth McDermott Hare ’01 – Enriching Diversity

Virginia Heagney ’71 – Professional Career Achievements

We invite the community to join us on Friday, May 2 from 2 - 4 PM in the Heagney Theatre for this special event. There is no cost to attend, however, we do ask you to RSVP by April 28.  For more information regarding the award ceremony, please email Angie at abarrow@nerinxhs.org.

Please Support the Nerinx Annual Fund

Annual Fund-- Have You Mailed Your Annual Fund Gift?

Remember your gift is tax deductible!

Your gifts are important to the school. As you know, Nerinx Hall is an independent Catholic school and operates without financial support from the Archdiocese. Nerinx relies on tuition, endowment income and Annual Fund contributions to meet the operating expenses.

Annual Fund gifts bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the actual cost to educate each student. Yes, that means that each girl attending Nerinx is subsidized. In 2013-2014 that gap is $1,500 per student. All Annual Fund gifts are 100% tax deductible. Please make your gift today to help us remain a strong and vital school. You can make your gift online at www.nerinxcommunity.org or return the envelope that you received in the mail in early October.

You are an essential part to help the legacy continue at Nerinx. With our strong academics, extraordinary faculty who enhance the educational experience and a well maintained facility we can continue to be the best school in St. Louis. Each faculty member in dedicated to Nerinx Hall and truly cares about the success of each girl and encourages her to discover her full potential.  Teachers, parents and students working together comprise the winning formula that will continue this amazing legacy for current and future students. This is why we ask for your support of the Annual Fund.
