Concord Academy’s mission is deeply rooted in service to others and the world at large. CA challenges its students to balance individual freedom with responsibility and citizenship as part of a broader community, a value that resonates with our alumnae/i in throughout their lives. It is only fitting that as a school CA chooses to bestow only one award each year – one in recognition of service – a true testament to CA’s lasting impact and proud tradition of nurturing difference-makers.
The Joan Shaw Herman Award is presented each year during reunion weekend to a member of the CA community who has demonstrated dedication to service in either a professional or volunteer capacity. Past recipients come from a variety of fields from the arts to medicine, social justice, environmentalism, education, and more. We celebrate our graduates and faculty for leading by example, and making their mark on the world through service to others.
The Concord Academy Alumnae/i Association welcomes nominations for the 2017 Joan Shaw Herman Award. We hope you will take a moment to learn more about this special honor and consider members of our community who demonstrate the power of service. Find the form to nominate a fellow alumna/us or faculty member here. The deadline to submit nominations is February 20, 2017.
