Special guest at the luncheon and surprise guest at the underwriter reception was Emmy- and SAG-nominated actor, musician, and writer Tituss Burgess, best known as Titus Andromedon in the Emmy-nominated comedy series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

The award presented by Chevron’s Dr. Steve Frangos was received by assistant professor Dan Price, PhD. Mayor Sylvester Turner joined in the program, praising the work of the two non-profits.
