Students Volunteer at Rep. Sylvester Turner's Family Day

By: Mary Ann Cozza

Representatives from UHD joined an estimated 15,000 attendees at the 5th Annual Family Day at the Sylvester Turner Park Saturday, April 14.

Guests filled the park for fellowship and fun in the form of youth baseball games, live music, free food and amusements for the kids and seniors.

According to State Representative Sylvester Turner, he "created Family Day as a way for families to have an event they could attend that would be accessible, safe, and fun for both children, their parents and senior citizens."

The Houston Astros Youth MLB Urban Youth Academy and the UHD Chemistry Society joined forces at the event as the UHD students volunteered to teach hitting, throwing and running skills to attending children.
