Each year, an alum is selected for their success and ongoing support of Geibel Catholic, and Catholic Education.
The 2023 Distinguished Alumni Award was presented to Lynn Cordaro Bainbridge.

She is a proud Geibel Graduate from the Class of 1971. She went on to California State College to study Speech Pathology, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in 1975 and a Masters of Education in 1978. Lynn worked with children who have special needs for 40 years in various Allegheny County schools, including the Diocese of Pittsburgh, Mr. Lebanon School District, and in private practice.
