Brenda Robson Hall

Young Alumna Award

Since 1894, Havergal has been inspiring young women to make a difference in their communities, their families, and the world at large. The Havergal Old Girls Association (HOGA) is proud to honour outstanding women who embody Havergal’s long-held “ideals” – imagination, diversity, excellence, altruism, leadership and spirituality.

The Dr. Susan Ditchburn Young Alumna Award is presented to an Old Girl, under 40 years of age, who has made a difference for good in the world. This award is presented each year to one Old Girl at the Old Girls Annual Dinner. Our community is blessed with so many outstanding young individuals. Please think of the women whom you know, from classes 1998 to 2020 who deserve to be recognized.

Nominations for the 2021 Dr. Susan Ditchburn Young Alumna Award are now open.
