Howdy, Y’all –
Each year, the city celebrates its Western heritage with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo – and the University of Houston likes to join in the festivities.
We’ll observe “Go Texan Day” Friday, Feb. 22, and you’re encouraged to wear cowboy clothes. Since that’s a “Cougar Red Friday,” I trust part of your outfit will be in the appropriate color. We’ll also be taking part in the Downtown Parade Saturday, Feb. 23, with a UH/UH Alumni Association float. On Friday, March 8, it will be “UH Night at the Rodeo.” I’ll be riding a horse in the Grand Entry Parade, and I hope a lot of Cougars are there to whoop it up.
We owe the rodeo a good deal for the numerous scholarships they provide our students and for keeping an important part of our culture alive. So, let’s get ready to rodeo.
With warm regards,
