2019 Give To Gators Campaign Under Way


By Sheryl E. Taylor

Last week, the Give To Gators Kick-Off Celebration offered faculty and staff delicious barbecue, music by UHD’s very-own Admission Possible, T-shirt giveaways and prizes.

With opening remarks from UHD President, Dr. Juan Sánchez Muñoz and Michael Johnson, chief of staff for the Office of the University of Houston System Chancellor, the event was a perfect way to launch the the 2019 Give to Gators Campaign.

Collectively, these gifts provide financial support for student scholarships and program development.The great thing about this campaign is that donors can easily select which scholarships and programs to support.

Beginning the week of March 4, random drawings will be held biweekly for those who donate to the Give To Gators Campaign. To qualify, donations of any amount must be made via:

Weekly winners will be notified via email and phone. Also, campaign winners will be announced in upcoming issues of UHD News.
