Welcome to the IWHS Alumnae Association!

The Alumnae Association is a governing body comprised of graduates and former students who, by their demonstrated commitment to Incarnate Word High School, have been selected to represent the entire alumnae body. This group is responsible for planning and promoting the alumnae programs throughout the year. The Alumnae Association works in collaboration with school administration to plan events and projects.
