Syrena Stackpole Award

The award is given in recognition of an alumna's dedicated service and exceptional commitment.

The award was established in 1982 to honor Syrena Stackpole, Class of 1909, an attorney who offered to rewrite the wills of alumnae wishing to leave money to the College, free of charge. Besides offering gratis legal services to such alums, Syrena's dedication to Wellesley was evident in her attendance at 63 reunions.

Selection Process
The recipient of the Syrena Stackpole Award, usually an alumna whose class is celebrating its reunion, is chosen by the executive director in consultation with the Alumnae Board and College administrators.

Award Presentation
The award is presented by the executive director at Annual Meeting in June.
