The Houston Ship Channel Educator's Guide

VRA rewrote and edited the Houston Ship Channel Educator's Guide.  The purpose of this 200 + page guide was to give educators and students an introductory understanding of how ports, specifically the Port of Houston, work. 

Speech Writing

For over a year VRA was the official speechwriter for the Executive Director of Port of Houston Authority. 

Under this assignment VRA was responsible for extensive research in all areas of the port industry, both nationally and internationally, in the preparation for speeches the Director presented throughout the world. 

This assignment also provided VRA insight into the general operations of the Port of Houston and the Port of Houston Authority, and their capabilities to serve the marketplace and potential marketing opportunities.
