Royal Sonesta Houston
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.
Since 1972, our Association has actively promoted and recognized academic achievement in the Houston area. At our 44th Annual Scholarship Awards Dinner on April 18, 2019, sixty-seven outstanding seniors from high schools in the greater Houston area were awarded $4,000 scholarships. Denisse Cordova Carrizales of MacArthur High School received the Jenard M. Gross Distinguished Scholar Award of $6,000, the highest scholarship award the Association bestows.
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.
Self-parking is available at the Royal Sonesta Houston self-parking garage. Please present your ticket at the event check-in desk for validation.
