by: Rep. Bowers, Rhetta

Austin, TEXAS –On Wednesday, March 13, State Representative Rhetta Andrews Bowers (113) was named Madam Speaker for the afternoon, gaveling out the Texas House of Representatives as they adjourned for the day.

“As a first-time Representative, it is always exciting to be honored by the Texas House. As I was looking out at the rest of my colleagues, I was filled with immense pride because it was a reminder that I am a part of something greater than myself. It is an honor to be a part of such an outstanding group of people and I look forward to seeing the great work that we accomplish during this session.

That same afternoon, Representative Bowers was honored at the 2019 Legislative Luncheon. The Luncheon was hosted by the Governor’s Commission for Women and took place at the Governor’s Mansion. The Luncheon was held to honor the women members of the 86th Legislature.

“The future of Texas is bright, and the First Lady and I are honored to celebrate the outstanding women members of the 86th Texas Legislature for their leadership and dedicated service to the people of this great state,” said Governor Greg Abbott.

“To be a part of the 86th Texas Legislature with such an amazing group of women has been one of the greatest joys of my life. I am so humbled by the fact that I get to go to work every day, knowing that I will be surrounded by the strength and camaraderie of what is now 42 other women, with the addition of Representative Christina Morales from House District 145. I know that we all will accomplish great things during the rest of our time as Representatives and I cannot wait to see and support the women who follow in our footsteps.
