WICT Greater Texas celebrated its ninth anniversary and honored award winners in the great city of Austin, Texas. The Lone Star Awards are designed to recognize the industry's brightest stars from across the great state of Texas. On May 26, 2016 members saluted the tireless efforts of leaders who embody the WICT Touchstones of Know Yourself, Communicate, Listen, Connect, Be a Catalyst, Be Fearless and Inspire. 

This annual gathering of WICT Greater Texas began in 2008 after Connie Wharton, the chapter advisor at the time, challenged a group of phenomenal women to develop a unique Texas awards program and leadership event. The result was the Annual Greater Texas Chapter Lone Star Awards and Leadership Seminar which were created to shine a bright light on the industry's top stars in various stages of their careers.
