TWU Schedules Houston Commencement

12/2/03


HOUSTON — The fall 2003 semester at the Texas Woman’s University Institute of Health Sciences-Houston Center will draw to a close with a commencement ceremony Sunday, Dec. 14.

The ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. in the ballroom of the George R. Brown Convention Center, 1001 Convention Center Blvd. Students and family members who have tickets are invited to attend.

Approximately 149 degrees will be conferred during the Houston ceremony.
TWU’s Denton ceremony, which includes graduates from the Denton and Dallas campuses, will take place Saturday, Dec. 13.

TWU Chancellor Dr. Ann Stuart will preside at each ceremony, which includes an academic procession, conferring of degrees and a commencement address.

Kathy Williams, vice president and news director for KRIV-TV in Houston, will be the commencement speaker. Williams is a 1997 Distinguished Alumna of TWU.

Williams got her first full-time job in television news while still a junior at TWU. She served as the weekend anchor and reporter throughout her summer internship at KTBC-TV in Austin. She then returned to TWU’s Denton campus and completed her bachelor of science degree in 1981.

Williams spent 10 years at KPRC-TV in Houston, working her way from associate producer to senior executive producer. She also worked in the nation’s capital as senior executive producer at WRC-TV. She also served as assistant news director at WGN-TV and WBBM-TV, both in Chicago. She earned two Emmy awards while serving as news director at two Cleveland, Ohio, stations.

Williams currently serves on the boards of TWU and the Association for the Advancement of Mexican Americans. She and her sister, Vicki, recently completed their first children’s book, titled, “Everybody Has A Daddy.” The book is the first in a series designed to build self-esteem in children growing up in households headed by single mothers.
