AWFC at the Texas Capitol
On Friday, November 10, the AWFC held the monthly luncheon at the center Texas State Capitol in the reception room of the Lt. Governor of Texas. The President and leadership conferred an honorary membership to Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott to the AWFC.
Mrs. Abbott’s mission as the First Lady of Texas is volunteerism. Not only has she devoted her professional life to helping others, she has done the same in her personal life.
Last year she launched Texanthropy Initiative to promote service to others as her primary focus. Cecilia has also partnered with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services to an initiative-Network of Nurture-to raise awareness about the ways Texans can support the children and families in the state’s child welfare system. She also serves on the board of several educational organizations and is a member of many philanthropic groups.
