Historical Timeline



“Old Girls” started to keep close contact with the Assumption community through the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Alumnae homecomings became known as “Old Girls’ Day” that included a “velada” (program).

The Assumption Herran was rebuilt.

The Alumnae Association was organized, with members divided into two groups: the Senior Alumnae and the Junior Alumnae composed of post-war graduates.
