 2019 SPE GCS Awards and Scholarship Banquet

The SPE- GCS gives over $100,000 annually in scholarships.  The annual SPE-GCS Awards Banquet recognizes the high school seniors and college students who have received SPE-GCS, Communities in Schools – Houston, or SPE Auxiliary scholarships for the 2017-18 academic year.  The scholarship recipients and their parents are invited to attend.  This is a fantastic 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 Gulf Coast Section award winners and Gulf Coast North America Region 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.  Because the SPE-GCS Awards Banquet honors the accomplishments of our scholarship recipients and the Legion of Honor, these award recipients are invited to attend the banquet free of charge.  Company table sponsorships make this banquet possible.

Here's the sponsor invitation letter.
