Two awards are presented to alumnae in the spring of each school year. The Distinguished Alumna Award and the Distinguished Alumna of Tomorrow Award.

The Distinguished Alumna Award is bestowed upon an individual alumna who has distinguished herself and her alma mater.  This award can be given for significant accomplishment in business or professional life and/or significant service to church, community, state, or nation in addition to sustained leadership and service to Marian High School. Nominations are accepted annually. Nominations submitted in previous years can be updated for reconsideration in subsequent years.

The Distinguished Alumnae of Tomorrow Award recognizes a graduating senior who has distinguished herself and Marian through her academics, leadership, and service to Marian and her community. Faculty and staff are invited to nominate or second a candidate for this special honor.
