2023 Outstanding Young Alumni Award
Julia Reinhard ‘18
As a young high school student at SD, Julia already had a commanding presence and her lively and spirited nature inspired many to action. For this, and her positive impact since graduation, we are delighted to honor Julia Reinhard ’18 as this year’s Outstanding San Domenico Young Alumna.
Julia was a leader of the student body during her years at SD, beginning in Middle School.
She served on the National Honor Society Board, led younger classmates during fall orientations, and was chosen by her classmates to represent Mary in the 2017 Christmas Tableaux.
After graduation, Julia wished to pursue a career in public service and chose to attend Dominican University of California, where she recognized the values of an intimate educational setting. In addition to excelling in the demanding academic courses she chose, Julia gained a college internship in Marin County Supervisor Katie Rice’s office and the County’s Public Information Office. Her successes in that assignment led to being selected as a Panetta Congressional Intern in Washington, D.C. for a semester.
During her senior year in college, Julia was chosen by local Marinite Mary Sackett to be her Campaign Manager as she sought the County’s District 1 Supervisor’s position. Mary not only won her seat in a tight race, she also chose Julia to be one of her full-time aides. At Julia’s Dominican University Commencement Ceremony, she was named the Class of 2022’s Outstanding Student.
Julia’s current focus is to strengthen her skill set to be the best aide for Supervisor Sackett, with an eye toward earning a master’s degree in public policy.
Looking back over her time at San Domenico, Julia remarked, “I am most appreciative of the campus community spirit and the many excellent teachers I experienced at San Domenico.”
2023 Distinguished Alumni Award
Amy Skewes-Cox ’71
Since graduating as an esteemed member of the Class of 1971, Amy Skewes-Cox has gifted San Domenico with her generosity as a supporter and devoted volunteer. From serving on the Master Planning and Facilities Committee (2014-present) to the Board of Trustees (2015-2021)—including three years as Board Chair—not to mention the honorary “Showed Up at the Most SD Events Ever” award for several years running! Shepherding the School during times of great transition, Amy’s expertise and wisdom have been invaluable and we are so thrilled to honor her with this year’s Distinguished Alumna award.
Amy credits her high school years for giving her the self-confidence and determination to make a difference in the world. She fondly recalls April 22, 1970—the first-ever Earth Day—when Amy inspired many of her peers to join her in celebrating the first large movement to improve environmental conditions around the globe. Soon afterward, she and her classmates began the first organic vegetable garden at San Domenico. “Visiting the Garden of Hope today, and seeing the huge array of solar panels embodying San Domenico's ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship, is always inspiring, heartening, and affirming,” Amy tells us. Amy’s commitment to environmental stewardship led to a bachelor of science degree in conservation of natural resources, and a master’s degree in landscape architecture/ environmental planning, both from UC Berkeley.
“The values learned from San Domenico are intricately interwoven with the lives we create for ourselves, and the impact we have on others. It's amazing to me that it's now been over 50 years since graduating and that we continue to celebrate Earth Day each spring; and that so many of my dear relationships are from SD. May we all join in celebration of the earth, close friends, those in need, and the value of following our hearts."
Amy continues to manage environmental and land-use planning projects, utilizing her 34+ years of experience working with California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), to support organizations and causes she cares about. In her spare time, she writes short stories with an online writing class and pursues her interest in dyeing fabric with natural dyes and weaving. You’ll also still see Amy on campus for many events!
