It’s Foundation Day y'all and we are SO grateful the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament made their way to Houston one hundred and forty-five years ago! After celebrating all-school Mass together at Annunciation Church, marking both May Crowning and the Class of 2018's last all-school Mass, the entire school gathered together to recognize some of the outstanding achievements that took place this year. A special congratulations to the Admissions Team (Kate O'Brien, Clare Kafoglis, & Brooke Holmes) for receiving the 2018 Jeanne de Matel Award! The afternoon was spent celebrating IWA's Foundation Day with dance parties, karaoke, bounce castles, and a street party on Jackson Street complete with a dunk tank! Special thanks to our "dad grillers", Student Council, and faculty organizers Lorien Cuneo, Melissa Micheletti, and Mily Perez.
Mentors from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) hosted IWA seniors at the seventh annual Young Women's Leadership Conference; a day-long seminar to teach IWA students about interviewing, crafting an "elevator pitch", professional networking, dressing for success and navigating the workplace. The conference, held exclusively for IWA students at PwC's offices at Wells Fargo Plaza in downtown Houston, aims to build student confidence, inspire students to take managed risks and set expectations for working in a professional environment.
