Employee Spotlight - Clifford Kennedy

The UH Parking Enforcement Department Supervisor, Clifford Kennedy, says his day can range from hectic and busy to challenging and exciting. On a daily basis, he helps students, staff and faculty with changing tires, unlocking their cars, towing unlawfully parked vehicles, issuing citations and keeping our parking lots safe and secure.

Clifford says, “The best part of my job is getting to meet different people every single day. Some people don’t like Parking Enforcement because they think all we do is tow or give citations, so I always talk to them with a smile on my face.” Some of his most memorable times at the University have been when a student rode his horse to campus and they had to confiscate the horse until the student returned, and also, in September 2008, when the campus had to be evacuated because of Hurricane Ike. Clifford says, “One of the other most exciting times at UH was working when basketball players - Clyde Drexler, Akeem Olajuwon, Michael Young, Larry Micheaux and Benny Anders played during the Phi Slamma Jamma era.”

Clifford also stays very busy outside of his job at UH. He drives a shuttle at the Airport and was recently a private shuttle driver for the Houston Rodeo, Barbeque Cook-Off Show participants. In his spare time, he likes to play with his grandchildren, watch sports and the Sci-Fi channel and go on road trips visiting friends and family.
