Les Femmes du Monde President, Martha C. Cox and Anne Sutherland, chair of the Woman of the Year gala dinner, will honor Texas First Lady, Cecilia Abbott as the Les Femmes du Monde Woman of the Year.

Abbott’s story reminds us all that the American Dream is alive and well in Texas. The granddaughter of immigrants from Mexico, she was raised in San Antonio by parents who were both educators, and who instilled in her, her sister, and two brothers, a love of learning and helping others. Abbott took their lessons to heart and studied at the University of Texas at Austin before subsequently earning three degrees from the University of St. Thomas in Houston: a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Education and a Master’s degree in Theology.

She then devoted her life to serving others. She has been a teacher, vice-principal, and principal at several Catholic schools across Texas. But, she hasn't been devoted to helping others only in her professional life; she's done so in her personal life as well. She currently serves on the board of several educational organizations and numerous philanthropic groups.

This event will benefit Les Femmes du Monde and its two beneficiaries, Children’s HealthSM Children’s Medical Center and the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth.
