On Thursday, February 25, 2016, Notre Dame Academy honored three graduates who are living the mission of NDA and making a difference in the world at the annual Women Making A Difference recognition award luncheon. This year’s honorees were: Sister Mary Ethel Parrott, SND ’64, Gina Tuemler Wulfeck ’76, and Lisa Davis Louden ‘97. Also during the luncheon, William and Sue Butler received the Sister Mary Reina Arlinghaus Award for exemplifying the mission of Notre Dame Academy through their service, community involvement, and philanthropic endeavors.
The ceremony, which was held at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington, began with registration at 11:00 a.m., followed by the luncheon at 12:00 p.m. Approximately 350 Notre Dame alumnae, corporate sponsors, business associates, and friends attended this year’s luncheon.
The Women Making A Difference award program, now in its fifteenth year, recognizes Notre Dame alumnae who have made significant contributions to their families and their communities through service, professional, and philanthropic efforts. It honors these women for living out NDA’s proud heritage and for the difference they continue to make in the world. The luncheon also provides much needed funds for the Notre Dame Student Tuition Assistance Program.
