Please join us for the next scholarship dinner on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, 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 will be honoring one of our city’s most deserving citizens: Doug Foshee, president and CEO of Sallyport Investments. He is a member of the Council of Overseers for the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Management at Rice University and serves on the boards of Rice University, KIPP, Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation and Houston Endowment Inc. Doug is former chairman, president and CEO of El Paso Corporation. A graduate of Southwest Texas State University and Southwestern Graduate School of Banking at Southern Methodist University, he earned an MBA from Rice University’s Jesse H. Jones School of Management. We are delighted to recognize Doug for his commitment to helping our young people succeed and his leadership role in the business community.
Since 1972, our Association has actively promoted and recognized academic achievement in the Houston area. At our 2017 Annual Scholarship Awards Dinner, seventy-two 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 $3,000 level or above will directly help those students move forward to grasp their dreams.
