  • He developed “The Stephan Pyles Scholarship Fund” which awards a $15,000 scholarship to a worthy Texas-based culinary student. 

Kenneth H. Cooper, MD, MPH, will be the keynote speaker. This award is named for Dr. Cooper who is the founder of the Cooper Aerobics Center and is credited with helping millions of people over the world recognize the value of a healthy active lifestyle.
