Traps: Human Trafficking Awareness presentation
. . .Apr. 19, 6-7:30 p.m.
Traps is Traffick911's evidence-informed, interactive youth program designed to equip youth and parents to avoid the tricks, traps and lures of traffickers. We bring the program into schools, Boys and Girls Clubs, juvenile detention centers, youth shelters and other venues. The program is geared toward ages 12-18 and is also adapted and presented to PTA's and parent groups.
IWHS will host a TRAPS presentation on Apr. 19 at 6:00-7:30 p.m. in the McGowen Gymnasium. Parents and faculty are invited to this “adults only” session about protecting our girls from the dangers of human trafficking. A student geared presentation will follow later.

Cycling for Wellness
In an effort to raise awareness for breast cancer, this fall IWHS Athletic Director, Coach April Fricke embarked on an historic ride for a good cause. She completed her ride at 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 20. She rode her bike along the same route the first three Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word traveled from Freeport to San Antonio in 1869, approximately 250 miles. This is the second year Fricke has completed the ride to raise funds for The CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Mobile Mammography Unit. Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word community and IWHS students, faculty, and parents welcomed her. Congratulations, Coach Fricke for your dedication to this important cause.
