Motherhood Luncheon Honors Achievements

THE SCENE:  The San Antonio Can High School hosted its 14th annual Motherhood: A Lifetime Achievement Award Luncheon at the San Antonio Country Club. The luncheon recognizes women who are dedicated community leaders and volunteers that benefit the students of San Antonio Can High School, a campus of Texas Can Academies. This year’s event honored Mary Worth, who has contributed to the community greatly and has accomplished outstanding achievements as a mother, wife, community advocate, teacher and friend.

 

THE VIBE: Guests enjoyed an invocation from Carolyn Johnson who lauded the San Antonio Can School’s outstanding student achievements. Then a series of students themselves took the stage, and shared incredible and moving stories about perseverance and overcoming challenges in their young lives. After bravely sharing their stories and plans for the future, the students received a powerful standing ovation from the guests. Mary Worth, the honoree of the luncheon, was then introduced for her selfless and inspiring contributions to society.

 

THE CAUSE:  Anna Torres, PC, chaired the 14th annual luncheon at the San Antonio Country Club. The San Antonio Motherhood Luncheon originated in 2004 as a tribute to active community volunteers, who are also mothers. The proceeds raised from the annual luncheon go towards benefiting the students of the San Antonio Can High School, who often require support beyond the classroom. Texans Can Academies believe that helping these students earn their high school diplomas is critical to breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty and illiteracy.
