From the very first day of school way back in 1867, BSS alumnae (fondly called Old Girls) have been making us proud. As we celebrate our 150th anniversary, we take a look at our alumnae and their fascinating accomplishments.
Distinguished Old Girls
The Distinguished Old Girl Award (DOGA) is presented annually to an alumna who has made a difference in the lives of others by giving back to the community, contributing a great deal to her profession, showing tremendous leadership, or by leading through her exceptional contributions to the arts.
