Full Description
Plan to attend an inspirational evening where we will celebrate the multi-faceted achievements of several generations of superstars in the energy industry.
 
The annual SPE-GCS Awards Banquet recognizes the high school seniors and college students who have received an SPE-GCS scholarship for the 2013 academic year. This is a great opportunity to welcome outstanding students into the petroleum industry and to make a positive impression on members of the community. In addition, this event also recognizes our Legion of Honor award recipients as well as our SPE Sectional and Regional award winners. Members of the Legion of Honor have served SPE for fifty years and will be honored for their long-standing commitment to our professional society.  Finally, a new initiative we are celebrating is the CHASE program.  The Collaboration in Houston for the Advancement of Science and Engineering gives Master’s Degree scholarships to local K-12 math teachers to enhance their technical knowledge and teaching abilities in the field of mathematics, a vital role that will encourage more young students to pursue degrees in science and technology after their high school graduation.
