Congratulations to Ruth Tisdale ('10) for being elected to the position of Trustee of the Thames Valley District School Board - Wards 1, 11, 12, and 14 in the municipal elections held on October 25, 2010.
Brescia’s Alumnae Association was founded in 1927 by two Brescia leaders:
Mother St. Anne felt that Brescia graduates should have a formal organization to help them maintain their relationships with fellow graduates and their alma mater.
Christine Dawson (’23) was part of Brescia’s first graduating class and helped establish the Alumnae Association. Christine was recognized as an Alumna Trailblazer in September 2009. Read more about Christine and other distinguished alumnae on the Notable Alumnae page.
All graduates of Brescia become members of the Alumnae Association. Any students who have successfully completed one academic year at the College are invited to become associate members.
