Distinguished Alumna Award The Distinguished Alumna Award is given to the GPS graduate considered to be the most deserving, taking these three criteria into account:
Service in the home, church, community
Commitment to GPS
Margaret Rawlings Lupton Award of Excellence Established in 1989, the Margaret Rawlings Lupton Award of Excellence recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of GPS alumnae. Women chosen for this honor have exhibited exceptional citizenship and service to the communities in which they live and beyond, either professionally or in a volunteer capacity.
Each year GPS recognizes a select number of alumnae and GPS coaches for their outstanding accomplishments in and contributions to athletics while at GPS and beyond. In keeping with our tradition of athletic excellence, inducted alumnae represent worthy role models whom younger athletes might choose to emulate.
The Hall of Fame inductees will be recognized during the Reunion Weekend Awards Luncheon.
