Alumnae Weekend 2024 Recap

It was wonderful to see so many Westridge alumnae return to Westridge for Alumnae Weekend 2024!

Together, we celebrated the 50th reunion class of 1974, honored our 2024 Distinguished Alumnae, and reconnected with classmates and fellow alumnae from the classes of 1969 through 2023—over 60 years of Westridge graduates!

Honoring Distinguished Westridge Alumnae

Each year Distinguished Alumnae are nominated by fellow alumnae to be honored at Alumnae Weekend. The first recipients were chosen in 1988 and were two members of the Westridge student body from its founding in 1913. Today, two alumnae are selected—the Mary Lowther Ranney Distinguished Alumna Award Recipient and the Distinguished Young Alumna Award Recipient. These alumnae embody the spirit of the Westridge motto Surgere Tentamus, have made meaningful impact in their community and notable strides in their chosen fields, and are an inspiration to the Westridge community. Learn more about these awards here.
