The Holton-Arms Alumnae Association celebrates recipients of The Distinguished Alumna and The "Rosie" Awards once a year during the Alumnae Association Celebration and Induction Brunch on the Saturday of Reunion Weekend.


The Distinguished Alumna Award

The Distinguished Alumna Award was established by the Board of Directors of the Alumnae Association in 1973 to recognize the career, professional, or volunteer service accomplishments of an outstanding alumna of the Holton-Arms School.

2019 Distinguished Alumna- Christine Lallouette Lagarde '74

Born in Paris in 1956, Christine Lagarde completed high school in Le Havre. After her baccalauréat in 1973, she went on an American Field Service scholarship, joining Holton-Arms’ Class of 1974. She then graduated from law school at University Paris X, and obtained a Master’s degree from the Political Science Institute in Aix-en-Provence.

After being admitted as a lawyer to the Paris Bar, Christine Lagarde joined the international law firm of Baker McKenzie as an associate, specializing in Labor, Anti-trust, and Mergers & Acquisitions. A member of the Executive Committee of the Firm in 1995, Christine Lagarde became the first woman to Chair the Global Executive Committee of Baker McKenzie in 1999. Christine Lagarde joined the French government in June 2005 as Minister for Trade. After a brief stint as Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries, in June 2007 she became the first woman to hold the post of Finance and Economy Minister of a G-7 country. From July to December 2008, she also chaired the ECOFIN Council, which brings together Economics and Finance Ministers of the European Union, and helped foster the European response to the global financial crisis. As Chairman of the G-20 Finance when France took over its presidency for the year 2011, she set in motion a wide-ranging work agenda on the reform of the international monetary system.

On July 5, 2011, Christine Lagarde became the eleventh Managing Director of the IMF, and the first woman to hold that position. On February 19, 2016, the IMF Executive Board selected her to serve as IMF Managing Director for a second five-year term starting on July 5, 2016.

Christine Lagarde was named Officier in the Légion d’honneur in April 2012.

A former member of the French national team for synchronized swimming, Christine Lagarde is the mother of two sons.

The "Rosie" Award

Created by the Board of Directors of the Alumnae Association on September 17, 1990, The Rosemary Wire Anderson ("The Rosie") Award recognizes an alumna's extraordinary service to Holton-Arms. It was presented for the first time at Reunion Weekend in 1991 to Rosemary Wire Anderson '58. The award recognizes extraordinary service to Holton faculty, volunteers, employees, and members of the Board of Trustees as well as the Alumnae Board.

The "Rosie" Award is a surprise to the recipient and will be announced at the Alumnae Association Celebration and Induction Brunch on Saturday, April 21, 2018.

The Holton Fund is the primary fundraising effort at Holton-Arms. The School depends on ongoing annual contributions to sustain daily activities, to support excellent faculty, and to look toward the future. From lab equipment to computers, financial aid to sports activities, art classes to school plays, the Holton Fund supports the people and programs that make up the Holton experience for every girl, every day. Since tuition alone does not cover the cost of a Holton education, gifts to the Holton Fund provide funding for the School’s most immediate needs:

  • Compensation and benefits for our talented and dedicated teachers;
  • Equipment and supplies for academic, arts, and athletics programs;
  • Professional development for faculty and staff;
  • Innovations to our rich curricular offerings;
  • Experiential learning opportunities locally, nationally, and globally;
  • Upgrades to instructional technology;
  • Maintenance of our campus and facilities.

The Champagne Cup is awarded to the Reunion Class achieving the highest participation in the 18-19 Holton Fund by Reunion Weekend. The Presidents’ Cup celebrates the class achieving the highest level of philanthropic leadership to Holton during a Reunion Year by Wednesday, April 10 at 4:00 p.m. EST.

Both awards provide friendly competition among Reunion Classes with the reward of exclusive champagne service throughout the weekend.

Nothing says celebration like a bottle of bubbly!
