This award is given annually to Beth Tfiloh alumni who have established themselves in the Arts. A talented and athletic High School student, Allison Heyden z"l, BT Class of ‘05 was known for her sparkling smile, her effervescent personality and most of all, her passion for fashion design. An up-and-coming designer, Alli’s senior collection put her school, Savannah College of Art and Design, on the map when it was showcased in Neimann Marcus’ Atlanta store window, featured in Cosmopolitan magazine and in the New York Times fashion magazine.
