O’Connell Robertson Twice Receives State Board of Education's Employers for Education Excellence (EEE) Award
O’Connell Robertson has twice received an Employers for Education Excellence (EEE) Award from the State Board of Education in recognition of the Firm’s “outstanding support of Texas public schools.” The EEE award was established in 2007 by the Texas Legislature to honor Texas employers who encourage and support staff participation and voluntarism in the public schools. O’Connell Robertson received the award in 2011 and 2015; companies are eligible to apply again after three years. Our Firm was honored for policies that support employees who regularly volunteer to help local schools.
Firm Commemorates 65th Anniversary with Community Donations
To celebrate its 65th year in business, O’Connell Robertson made donations totaling $6,500 to three representative education and healthcare organizations in honor of all its clients and employees. Each of the firm’s employees received $65 in “corporate cash” to allocate as they wished among three representative client organizations. The Firm then matched the amounts delegated. The donations were made to The Seton Fund, Alamo Colleges Foundation, and the Sally & Mack Brown Rise School of Austin.
