The “40th Anniversary PROMES/Shell Engineering Retirees Scholarship Endowments in Honor of Dr. Gerhard Paskusz and Dr. Katherine S. Zerda” in the amount of $40,000 was announced on May 31 at the PROMES 40th Anniversary Reconnect and Mixer event. Ten Shell retirees jumpstarted the fund with a combined $25,000 commitment.

Now, the UH Cullen College of Engineering is proud to announce that the PROMES 40th anniversary endowment is fully funded in the amount of $40,000. The Cullen College's initial goal was to raise the $40,000 in two years. However, by this January, the endowment is expected to be funded in the amount of $52,000.

8-year-old Rafael tries on pieces of his gift - a new hand from UH students

On a Wednesday evening in November, Maria Sanchez sits quietly weeping inside a private room on the first floor of the University of Houston M.D. Anderson library.

"My baby just held a cell phone with his left hand," she allows, as the tears continue to stream.

Might not seem tear-worthy to most, but her baby is 8-year-old Rafael. Likely born with a form of symbrachydactyly, Rafael’s fingers never formed in utero, leaving him with only a tiny fist-like hand.

Engineering and computer science professions attract fewer women than other STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields in the United States.
