Here, We Go…Beyond The Billion

Alumni Relations & UHAA

I have so many reasons to call myself a proud member of this UH alumni family. I’m a graduate, I met my lovely wife here, my children attend this University, I’m simply a die-hard Coog. And those reasons alone give me reason to be proud, however, the most recent UH milestone has made me an even prouder alum. The University of Houston has achieved the $1 Billion mark in our historic “Here, We Go” Campaign, nearly a year and half ahead of schedule. I believe, it’s the Cougar spirit and pride, that led the way to this tremendous milestone. I couldn’t be prouder to call myself a Coog!

The number of individual donors who fueled our momentum is something to marvel upon. The culture of giving, speaks to the confidence we have in UH. I want to thank each and every one of you for your help with reaching this amazing moment in our University’s history. Special thanks to my team, our UHAAF board, our Alumni Association leaders, and You. Whether you gave directly to the campaign or showed your pride by attending an event or game, you are one of the reasons we can celebrate this success – thank you!

Go Coogs!

True We’ll Ever Be!
