The News Magazine of HBU

The HBU Athletics Department received a 2021 Mayor’s Proud Partner award, presented by Keep Houston Beautiful from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner at the 36th Annual Mayor’s Proud Partner Award Luncheon in November.

The Huskies were represented by three members of the HBU Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), football senior tight end and SAAC President Cleman Robins, junior track and field long and triple jumper Tasheba Pleasant, softball sophomore catcher Jasie Roberts, as well as SAAC advisor Charlotte Rodgers, who is the Assistant Director of Compliance and a former HBU golfer.

HBU student-athletes across a variety of sports took part in a pair of events this year in the Sharpstown community, along with city councilman, Edward Pollard. In February, more than 100 HBU student-athletes participated in a clean-up effort around the neighborhood, then more student-athletes volunteered at the Sharpstown Halloween Carnival and Parade in October.

Keep Houston Beautiful is the city’s leading organization in beautification, litter reduction and recycling education. HBU Athletics plans to continue partnering with Councilman Pollard and the community for more projects in 2022.
