First Lady of Texas Cecilia Abbott believes women play an important role in the future of Texas. She elaborated on this belief June 4 during a presentation at the Hispanic Women in Leadership’s Annual Scholarship Luncheon. The keynote address was Abbott’s first in Houston since her husband, Greg Abbott, was elected governor last fall.

Instead of hosting a party or popping  open a bottle of champagne, I am reflecting on the 4,000+ days I’ve spent on the work (and pleasures) of informing, inspiring and connecting successful women via this publication.
 
Top of mind are the women I’ve met and gotten to know well over
