The International Women’s Board of the UTPA Foundation will hold a general membership luncheon and style show on Wednesday, May 12, at 11:30 a.m. at the McAllen Country Club. The cost of the luncheon is $25 per person. Fashions will be provided by Dillard’s department store.

The mission of the IWB is to contribute to the breadth, depth, and quality of education at The University of Texas-Pan American, act as ambassadors for the University, provide scholarships, promote fellowship and meet other special needs. Supporting UTPA’s Study Abroad programs with scholarships, the IWB helps provide life transforming experiences for high achieving, outstanding UTPA students.

These exceptional students study abroad in multi-disciplined classes, which are held throughout the world during summer sessions. IWB membership is open to women of all ages who are interested in supporting South Texas higher education. IWB members are dynamic women who build scholarships for UTPA and who also enjoy traveling together with fellow members and friends. IWB projects and activities are sanctioned by the UTPA Foundation and benefit student study abroad scholarships.
