Sweet Tradition


As one of three brothers to graduate from the University of Houston, Ruben Carrasco is pretty proud of his Cougar heritage. So, on one of the most important days of his life -- his wedding day -- he wanted to commemorate that pride in some way. The result was a cake, with the official interlocking UH logo.

Ruben, a 1998 graduate with a bachelor's in accounting, couldn't help but share his pride with his two brothers, Rick Carrasco, a 1992 UH graduate with a bachelor's in history, and Rafael Carrasco, a 1998 UH graduate with a bachelor's in marketing and professional selling. His bride, Anita Spurger, though not a UH alum, also enjoyed the tradition. The couple, who married on New Year's Eve in Carrollton, Texas, reside in Sachse, Texas.
