September, 2015

The Seventh Incarnate Word Academy Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held  in September 2015.

The event is planned during Homecoming Weekend and promises to be a memorable occasion for all.

Beginning in 2015, IWA will host the Hall of Fame every two years during odd calendar years.  This decision came because the HOF Planning Committee was receiving very few nominations!

So, please, NOMINATE those wonderful IWA Alums who have demonstrated amazing success in the areas of:



Community Outreach


Medical Leadership

Spiritual Leadership


Athletics (both individuals and teams)

Or perhaps you might want to suggest another category for recognition.  Creativity is always welcome.

The IWA Board of Trustees and the Administration intends to revitalize the Hall of Fame, restoring the enthusiastic participation the event enjoyed when it was initiated in 2008.  A new Hall of Fame Planning Committee is now being formed.  The Academy wants to ensure balanced participation of IWA Board Members, administrators, and Booster Club Members-all working together to recognize the many and varied talents of IWA alums.

If you would be interested in helping plan the event, please submit your name to Kathleen Bannes, Administrative Assistant to the President, at  by October 1, 2014.

More information on this exciting event will be available in the next issue of The Word.
