ACBSP to Honor Shell Oil with the 2019 Educational Impact Award at ACBSP Conference 2019 in Houston this June

186 Days ago

Dr. Frazier Wilson, Vice President, Shell Oil Company Foundation and Manager, Workforce Development and Diversity Outreach, will accept the award during the Impact Session at ACBSP Conference 2019 and highlight some of the programs that are impacting the lives of so many Houston-area students, helping them set a course for a successful future.

OVERLAND PARK, KS, USA (June 4, 2019), June 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Dr. Alejandro Cheyne, Rector of Universidad del Rosario in Bogotá, Colombia, and 2018-19 Board Chair of the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), will present the Educational Impact Award to Dr. Wilson at the Impact Session on June 22, during ACBSP Conference 2019, at the Hilton Americas-Houston.

 

“We are inspired by Shell’s participation in the United Negro College Fund Walk for Education to benefit students and the community, and their 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,” said Dr. Cheyne. 

Shell is a founding, presenting sponsor of the “Mayor’s Back 2 School Fest,” preparing economically disadvantaged students in grades K-5 for academic success. The event supports more than 25,000 students and their families with all the free services offered at that event and equips each student with a backpack full of school supplies for the coming year. Shell was mentioned in a quote from the event: “The company is committed to cultivating a network that supports the development of STEM careers and other disciplines that add to the economic strength and stability of our vibrant communities.”

ACBSP believes Shell Oil and the Workforce Development and Diversity Outreach they provide significantly impacts the lives of students they serve each year, making them a deserving recipient of the Educational Impact Award.

ACBSP established the Educational Impact Award in 2015 to be presented each year to a company based in the ACBSP conference host city that has positioned itself to benefit students and further education in the community. Past recipients include Comcast Corporation, Edison International, and Kauffman Scholars, Inc.
