Alumnae may donate gently used graduation and other formal attire to the Alumnae Association's annual sale. Students shop for formal dances, prom, graduation and other special events. Donations may be mailed to the school or dropped off at the Gordon Building.
The Howard P. Colhoun Family Woman of Consequence Award, named in honor of a loyal Bryn Mawr volunteer leader, inspires the next generation of changemakers by celebrating and supporting women who have used their voices and actions to make positive contributions to the building of a more equitable and just world. “Leadership not only comes from experience, but seeing others do it well,” said Howard “Pete” Colhoun P’82 ‘84 ‘92, Bryn Mawr trustee emeritus. “My family and I are pleased to support this important initiative at Bryn Mawr to provide students with inspiration and role models of leadership. Showing young girls what other women have accomplished in life puts it in their realm of possibility and reach.”
Current, past and incoming members of the Alumnae Board are invited to a dinner to celebrate the Board's accomplishments, thank retiring members, welcome new members, and congratulate the student winners of the Alumnae Association Awards.
