Students Represent UHD in MLK Day Parade

Joined by the Black Student Association, the UHD dance and cheer teams made their parade debut in the 21st Annual Martin Luther King,Jr. Day Grand Parade in Houston's midtown. The teams waved and performed for the hundreds of cheering attendees who lined the mile-long route on San Jacinto. Many in the crowd were heard shouting "Go Gators!" as the teams marched by. The students were escorted by Ed U. Gator, who rode along in the UHD Sports & Fitness van. The students were proud to represent UHD in an event that promoted and honored the ideals and hopes of its namesake.
