Speakers include Kevin McCue, energy manager at NASA’s Johnson Space Center; Ben Exner, vice president of energy investment banking with Citibank; and Michelle Pflueger, general manager of digital innovation and acceleration at Chevron.

“This is a special opportunity that educates attendees and celebrates Houston’s position as the Energy Capital of the World,” said Elliott Martinez, vice chairman of marketing with the coalition. “Being students, we have questions about jobs, challenges and how we can best be prepared to join the workforce.”

Students can also enter for a chance to win a $500 scholarship by submitting a 60-second video highlighting the future of Houston or UH and energy.
