The 2021 SPE Gulf Coast Section Scholarship and Awards Banquet was held on Thursday, August 5th, 2021 at the Red Oak Ballroom at the Norris Convention Center, City Centre Houston. The theme of the Banquet for 2021 is "Pathway to Net Zero" and the keynote speaker was Vicki Holloub, President and Chief Executive Officer of Occidental.
The annual SPE-GCS Awards and Scholarship Banquet recognizes the high school seniors and college students who have received SPE-GCS or Communities in Schools – Houston scholarships for the 2020-21 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 SPE Gulf Coast Section award winners, Gulf Coast North America Region award winners, and Legion of Honors.
