Chriss Chavez (B2) '89 was recently profiled by Tulsa World after receiving the Jamie Oaxaca Award from the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers for her inspiring story and tireless volunteer efforts. Great job, Chriss!
A logistics and materials planner for the Automotive Components Holdings glass plant in Tulsa, Chavez has dedicated much of her free time to inspiring other Hispanics to embrace education and better their lot in life.
The award noted Chavez's volunteer efforts in establishing SHPE chapters in Tulsa and Nashville, Tenn., as well as helping Hispanic secondary students seek math-related careers. She will be honored during a ceremony next month in Philadelphia.
That ceremony will take place on Saturday, November 3rd, in Philadelphia.
