Sesquicentennial Seniors Set New Records for Success

The entire community came together at the Sacred Heart Co-Cathedral on May 18 to celebrate the Class of 2024, IWA’s Sesquicentennial Seniors. The Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation also punctuated the end of the school's year-long series of exciting and sentimental events to honor IWA's 150-year anniversary.

The 2024 class of 70 young women is known not only for leadership and resilience, but also for earning a record number of college scholarships–$15 million. In addition, the class logged more than 8,400 hours of service to the community, volunteering at local nonprofits such as The Food Bank, Camp Smiles, Pro-Life Houston, Lone Oak Ranch, and many more.

“The best is yet to come for the Class of 2024,” says Director of College Counseling Dr. Talia Pennington-Dorsey. “These young women are willing to put in the hard work to achieve their goals, and they are true servant leaders. I am excited to witness all the good they will bring into the world.”

As the graduates join more than 40 colleges and universities throughout the United States, the foundation built at IWA will guide them to greatness. Like Salutatorian Jane Volf said in her graduation address, “IWA students are well prepared to understand the value of substance over surface.”
