“Everybody can be great because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

What does Black History Month mean to you?
Black History honors our historic past, present, and future leaders of our community. I am creating my Black History by serving in STEM education and uplifting students to create their own Black History.
Tai Prince was nominated by James Marshall, HSE Umbilical & REMS Program Manager at TechnipFMC.
I've worked with Tai for quite some time now and I cannot think of a single person who has done more to beat the drum for the importance of STEM education. Tai was given the opportunity to host a STEM event during our company's contribution to its United Way Campaign and catapulted that presentation into an annual STEM Day that has been corporately sponsored and celebrated for over 4 years now.
Because of Tai, not only does TechnipFMC have an investment in STEM education for our employees and surrounding community but our company has doubled down and continuously committed to Tai setting the stage and taking our vision and mission to the City of Houston's largest annual FREE family festival "Energy Day" which showcases STEM for all to enjoy. Tai, on top of her professional work and responsibilities, sacrifices countless hours organizing, directing, designing, and all other magical and mystical deeds to ensure the STEM projects are the very best.
Tai absolutely is invested in STEM education and has backed up all of her talk by walking the walk! She has been a superb General and an Inspiring Leader! She has been infectious (in a positive way) and has hooked us all on STEM again as if we were small children in an elementary lab. She has brought children from all walks of life, demographics and made them feel like Engineers, Teachers, Scientists and Inventors. She is truly a wonder and I am so very proud we have her and will follow her down this road of STEM education blindly, because I've seen her dedication and her magic and most importantly her unwavering commitment to make certain everyday, every week, every year this crusade continues to live on.
