Greetings Cougars,

Associate Vice President,
Alumni Relations

Well, here we are !

My letter to you all at this time of year is usually short and sweet because I want the attention to be on the outstanding efforts of our volunteers and our team who pull together incredible engagement opportunities for you as alumni.

You will see that our events calendar is full, culminating with our incredible 67th Annual Alumni Awards Gala on April 30. I hope all of you will find a place with us, whether it’s with your constituent group, or you’re new to our organization and join CoogsConnect to strengthen your connection with your alma mater. And don’t forget to find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and all our other outlets to keep yourself engaged.

I would be remiss if I didn’t congratulate our Men’s Basketball team on the incredible run to the Elite Eight (thank you to all of you who helped us take over San Antonio!) and all of our alumni who participated in Frontier Fiesta, RodeoHouston, and Mardi Gras. All these activities put such a spotlight on UHAA and our engagement in the community. You make us very proud to wear “Houston” across our chest!

True we’ll ever be,

Mike Pede (’89)
