Joan Shaw Herman Award

Each year during reunion, the Concord Academy Alumnae/i Association presents the Joan Shaw Herman Award to a member of the CA community who has demonstrated dedication to service in either a professional or volunteer capacity. This award is a powerful statement of CA’s values.

Our impressive field of past honorees have made their mark through work in medicine, the arts, social justice, environmentalism, education, science, and more. In 2018, we celebrated the work of Catherine Saalfield Gund ’83: her career fighting injustice and intolerance through the medium of documentary film. In October, she returned to campus to share her journey with students, faculty, and staff.

On behalf of the Concord Academy Alumnae/i Association, we invite you to join us in honoring this year’s recipient, Dr. Kate Morse Erwin ’69 during on Friday, June 7 as part of the Concord Academy Alumnae/i Association Assembly. We hope to see you there!
Learn more about the Joan Shaw Herman Award.
