Steve Moniaci   


Steve joined the HBU staff in 2007 and has been an integral part of the development of Houston Baptist University ever since.  Within the past two years, Steve is credited with helping HBU gain entrance into the NCAA Division I Southland Conference and for overseeing the addition of our Husky Football program to the University. Steve has been a friend to the Alumni Association from the beginning of his career here at HBU and allowed the HBU Alumni Board to sponsor a locker two years ago, giving us the unique honor of being Husky Football Founders, a memory that will be forever cherished.
