Each year, Mount Mary University honors its most distinguished alumnae who are selected to receive a Tower Award for Excellence or Madonna Medal to honor their achievements. The awardees are selected based on their dedication to their profession, volunteerism and civic impact, as well as their unique impact on the community.

This event is sponsored by Mount Mary University and the Mount Mary University Alumnae Association.
