St. Anne's Alumni Board is pleased to announce Martha Ostertag Adams '82 as the winner of the 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award.

Martha Adams is an award-winning storyteller who produced the film at the center of the Girl Rising campaign. Newsweek/Daily Beast named Adams one of "125 Women of Impact," and today, acting as Girl Rising's Chief Creative Officer, she produces stories and authors creative partnerships to fuel girls' empowerment advocacy around the world. Her most recent project involves empowering women in the Middle East through sports. 


Thank you to all those who nominated a St. Anne's alum. We had a long list from which to choose and the decision was not easy. 

The Alumni Board is working on an event to celebrate and honor both Martha and our alumni in the new year. Stay tuned for more information.
