AAPG Student Group Honored as Outstanding Chapter
November 12, 2020
The Texas Longhorn Student Chapter of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), a group based out of the Jackson School of Geosciences, has received the 2020 Outstanding Student Chapter Award for the Gulf Coast Section.
The award honors enthusiastic student chapters that “capitalize on opportunities to enrich the experiences of its membership” and includes a $2,000 prize. Recipients are selected by the AAPG Student Chapter Committee and the AAPG Programs team, which considers award-winning chapters as those that “best communicate the breadth of its activities and the impact it has on formulating the education and professional demeanor of its membership.”
The chapter was recognized for the award during a virtual ceremony hosted by the AAPG in July.
“I was happy when I heard that the Longhorn AAPG student chapter received this award,” said chapter President Kiara Gomez. “This is a reflection of the hard work that the previous leadership team, led by Cole Speed, has done in providing AAPG members with amazing events, workshops and lectures. The monetary award will allow us to bring in diverse industry speakers for the upcoming years, so stay tuned for more updates!”
