Seeking BOT Excellence Award Nominations

When young women attend Carmel College, our vision is that they receive an education with opportunities that will see them empowered to challenge and shape the future.  Our hope is that they will live by our Mercy values whereby they are compassionate and respectful, where they will seek justice for others and themselves, and where they will have the courage to pursue their ambitions.

In 2022 the Carmel College Board of Trustees introduced an annual award called the BOT Excellence Award with the idea that the recipients of this award will have brought honour to themselves and also to Carmel College through their achievements.

The inaugural award was presented at the senior prizegiving to past student, Grace Stratton in recognition of her outstanding achievements in the area of disability advocacy in business.

The Board is calling for nominations for the 2023 BOT Excellence Award and, therefore, invites any member of our community to nominate a past student or staff (current or past) member who they believe is deserving of this prestigious award.
