Spring Is In the Air at UH!

March is a busy month in Houston, and of course, our University of Houston Cougar alumni are right in the middle of the action!

More than 600 University of Houston alumni participate by serving on various committees and attending activities at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. If this describes you, thank you in advance for the great work you’re doing for education in Texas! I have served for several years on the wine sales committee and I feel a great deal of satisfaction about helping to raise money for the nearly 250 Rodeo Scholars that attend UH.

Our annual Frontier Fiesta, once referred to in Life magazine as the “greatest college show on earth,” will return to campus March 23, 24 and 25. We will be at City Hall this year — stop by and say Go Coogs!

Please be sure to check out our calendar at www.houstonalumni.com. We have upcoming recognition dinners, golf tournaments, and awards programs! Our alumni volunteers are hard at work raising money for scholarships and for our $1 billion capital campaign.

Again, I hope to see you at one of the more than 25 upcoming events we have planned, and I hope you’ll take the time to check out our new website, which we are very proud of. While you’re at it, let us know how you’re doing by sending us a class note!

Have a great March, and we will check in with you soon!
True we’ll ever be!
