Program History

The Ladue Horton Watkins Distinguished Alumni program began in 2002 to commemorate the school's 50th anniversary. Thirty-five alumni were recognized for making significant accomplishments in their career fields.

This honor was again bestowed on an additional 23 alumni for the 60th anniversary in 2012. District alumni and interested community members nominated those graduates they felt deserved the honor. The nominees were then evaluated by a committee of alumni and current and former faculty members.
