48th Annual Scholarship Awards Dinner
Please join us on Monday, April 25, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. at the Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria for the Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association of Greater Houston’s 48th Annual Scholarship Awards Dinner.
This year we are delighted to honor David W. Leebron (Harvard College, ’75), president of Rice University, with the Outstanding Phi Beta Kappa Alumnus Award. We will also honor Y. Ping Sun with the Outstanding Contribution to Education Award. Our honorees have lifted the level of education, expanded the role of the Arts and Sciences, and helped make the City of Houston a Phi Beta Kappa City of Distinction. Mr. Leebron will complete his 18-year tenure as president of Rice University in June. Please join us to salute Mr. Leebron and Ms. Sun’s remarkable accomplishments during this era in the history of Rice University and the City of Houston.
Our Dinner Chairman is Andrew Davis. Davis is the Founding Dean of the Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts. He has been on the faculty of the Moores School of Music since 2003. In the profession and in the community at large, Davis is an active member of the National Association of Schools of Music, including that organization’s team of members that recommend accreditation actions for schools of music nationwide. Davis is an officer and has served as a director of Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association of Greater Houston’s Board of Directors since 2013.
We will also award college scholarships to over 65 outstanding graduating high school seniors. This program is nationally renowned because it makes a difference.
Since 1972, the Association has awarded merit-based scholarships to students graduating from the full range of Houston-area secondary schools representing the vital diversity of our great city. The love of learning symbolized by Phi Beta Kappa has the potential to transform our society, and yet the challenge of affording a quality college education can be prohibitive–especially for gifted students of modest means. The opportunity to connect to these academically talented students and make a difference in their young lives is of utmost importance. Fostering a love of learning can make all the difference, for both the student and our society.
