SAVE THE DATE! 2019 45th Annual Scholarship Awards Dinner
Please join us for the next scholarship dinner on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. at the Royal Sonesta Houston at 2222 West Loop South, culminating in the awarding of college scholarships to over 65 top graduating seniors.
This year we are delighted to honor the John P. McGovern Foundation for its commitment to improve the health, education, and quality of life of the citizens of Houston. In 1961, Dr. McGovern established the John P. McGovern Foundation as a private philanthropy. Since that time the Foundation has supported countless health-care initiatives as well as a medical school, a college of the arts, and a teachers institute. The Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association of Greater Houston is fortunate to be one of the long-time beneficiaries of the Foundation’s generosity, and Dr. McGovern, himself a Phi Beta Kappa alumnus, was the Association’s very first honoree at what became its annual scholarship awards dinner, in 1974.
John M. Bonner will serve as our Dinner Chairman. John was a founder and currently serves as president of First Continental Investment Co., Ltd. First Continental Investment Co., Ltd, its predecessor and related companies, have provided over $2 billion of lot acquisition and development financing or equity, in over 700 communities and 15 markets around the country. John also serves as director of First Continental Mortgage, Ltd and currently serves as the managing partner on various development entities.
Since 1972, our Association has actively promoted and recognized academic achievement in the Houston area. At our 2018 Annual Scholarship Awards Dinner, sixty-seven outstanding seniors from high schools in the greater Houston area were awarded $4,000 scholarships.
Please consider supporting the Scholarship Awards program. Students across our area are working hard to realize their college hopes. Your generous contribution at the $3,500 level or above will directly help those students move forward to grasp their dreams. To make a gift, please click here!
