Spring Alumnae Luncheon

Women of the Word from 1948 to 2012 gathered at the Junior League of Houston on February 16, 2019 for the annual Spring Alumnae Luncheon.  This year, the Academy honored Betty Ann Martin Kowis ‘53 and Lanette Kowis ‘88 for the love, leadership and commitment to Incarnate Word Academy and the greater Houston community.

More than 150 alumnae and friends gathered to celebrate the IWA sisterhood and the dynamic mother-daughter duo. A wonderful time was had by all and we are looking forward to doing it again next year!
