48th Annual Scholarship Awards Dinner

Please join us on Monday, April 25, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. at the Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria for the Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association of Greater Houston’s 48th Annual Scholarship Awards Dinner



David W. Leebron
2022 Outstanding PBK Alumnus Award

Y. Ping Sun
2022 Outstanding Contribution to Education Award

Andrew Davis
2022 Dinner Chairman

This year we are delighted to honor David W. Leebron (Harvard College, ’75), president of Rice University, with the Outstanding Phi Beta Kappa Alumnus Award. We will also honor Y. Ping Sun with the Outstanding Contribution to Education Award. Our honorees have lifted the level of education, expanded the role of the Arts and Sciences, and helped make the City of Houston a Phi Beta Kappa City of Distinction. Mr. Leebron will complete his 18-year tenure as president of Rice University in June. Please join us to salute Mr. Leebron and Ms. Sun’s remarkable accomplishments during this era in the history of Rice University and the City of Houston.

Our Dinner Chairman is Andrew Davis. Davis is the Founding Dean of the Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts. He has been on the faculty of the Moores School of Music since 2003. In the profession and in the community at large, Davis is an active member of the National Association of Schools of Music, including that organization’s team of members that recommend accreditation actions for schools of music nationwide. Davis is an officer and has served as a director of Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association of Greater Houston’s Board of Directors since 2013.

We will also award college scholarships to over 65 outstanding graduating high school seniors. This program is nationally renowned because it makes a difference.

Since 1972, the Association has awarded merit-based scholarships to students graduating from the full range of Houston-area secondary schools representing the vital diversity of our great city.  The love of learning symbolized by Phi Beta Kappa has the potential to transform our society, and yet the challenge of affording a quality college education can be prohibitive–especially for gifted students of modest means. The opportunity to connect to these academically talented students and make a difference in their young lives is of utmost importance. Fostering a love of learning can make all the difference, for both the student and our society.

Our Scholarship Awards Program helps dozens of outstanding Houston area students attend college each year.

Without the assistance of organizations like the Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association, I would be unable to attend college. I truly appreciate the generosity of the donors. Because of them, I have been given the opportunity to be successful in my college studies.
Andres Reyna, MacArthur High School

As the oldest of six children, financial assistance in attending a private university is crucial.  I thank God every day for the gift of people like you, willing to assist young people in pursuit of academic excellence.
Christina Witkowski, St. Pius X

I cannot describe how thankful I am and how helpful this scholarship will be in helping me achieve my future aspirations.
Victoria Soeung, Aldine High School
