The Associated Alumnae and Alumni of the Sacred Heart (AASH) was created as a way to unite all children of the Sacred Heart, and to further the work of the Religious of the Society of the Sacred Heart (RSCJs).
Sarah Chambers Polk, a Maryville College alumna, developed the idea of a group of alumnae from every school in the country in 1930. Fittingly, she was elected the new association’s first president at its inaugural meeting in 1933 in Saint Louis, Missouri.
Nearly 80 years later, AASH is comprised of more than 40,000 women and men educated in Sacred Heart schools and divided among 45 member associations located in 26 states and British Columbia.
