Middle school students with The Village School- Pumps and Pipes STEAM Academy took a tour of Port Houston recently.
This spring, more than 155 students graduated through the port’s highly acclaimed maritime education program and Port Houston hosted several graduation dinners to recognize them.
Port Houston volunteers had their hands full (of cordgrass) this spring, as they partnered with the Galveston Bay Foundation on several environmental stewardship projects focused on beautifying and restoring the bay.
Port Houston continues to demonstrate its strong commitment to education, whether from inside the classroom, at the workplace and beyond. Port Houston strives to increase public awareness with students in the community regarding the port and its role in the local, regional, and national economy.
Did you know that St. Nicholas is the patron saint of seafarers, as well as of children? Port Houston is proud to continue a wonderful tradition of spreading holiday cheer by providing small gifts to visiting seafarers through the “Shoeboxes for Seafarers” program. The program, which has been running for more than 40 years, is organized by the Houston International Seafarers’ Center.
Port Houston helped spread the holiday spirit by preparing and packaging Thanksgiving meals for 22 families at the Houston International Seafarers’ Center. Families included both local community members and Port Houston staff affected by Hurricane Harvey.
