Educational Impact Award
ACBSP welcomes Dr. Frazier Wilson, Vice President, Shell Oil Company Foundation and Manager, Workforce Development and Diversity Outreach. Shell Oil is the recipient of the 2019 Educational Impact Award.ACBSP believes Shell Oil and the Workforce Development and Diversity Outreach they provide are significantly impacting the lives of students they serve each year. We were particularly inspired by Shell’s partnership with the Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering to host the TAME Trailblazer, offering hands-on science experiments to get students excited about math and science, which can influence them to consider a STEM career with Shell.
Ann Scott, Chief Development Officer and Executive Director, will represent the Houston Independent School District, the 2019 #ACBSP4Change honoree. The Houston Independent School District is the largest school district in Texas and the seventh largest in the U.S., serving 215,000 students at 215 campuses. The Marketing Committee identified HISD as this year’s recipient specifically for the way in which the HISD-Foundation encourages creativity and innovation among its teachers by awarding Innovation Grants. The Foundation supports district-wide and school-based programs and initiatives aimed at increasing student academic achievement, eliminating the minority achievement gap, and developing and retaining effective educators in every classroom.
