TSU National Alumni Association Preparing for Annual Convention
Unleashing Our Tiger Pride,” is the theme for the Texas Southern University National Alumni Association (TSUNAA) 2014 National Convention. The convention will be held July 31 – August 3, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas.
The TSU National Alumni Convention is held annually to focus on informing alumni, partners, and TSU supporters about the innovative academic programs and projects that the University is engaged in and empowering alumni and supporters to give back. The three-day event is filled with workshops and activities that were created to re-ignite, renew, and re-energize the TSU Tiger Spirit and remind alumni of our commitment to the future of our University.
“The alumni love Texas Southern University, make no mistake about that,” says Julia Askew, current TSUNAApresident. “This event gives us a chance to talk about increased support for the university whether that support comes in the form of volunteerism, tutoring, mentoring or financial assistance. We want our love for the university to resonate into whatever help the university needs.”
Highlights of the convention include: the TSUNAA Golf Tournament, Welcome Reception, Casino Night, Lifetime Members Luncheon, Excellence in Achievement Awards Banquet, Community Service Project, NFL Hall of Fame Watch Party for alumnus Michael Strahan, TSU Throwback Yard Party, Prayer Breakfast, along with seminars for pharmacists and law school graduates, plus breakout sessions that will enlighten and educate all alumni. Radio personality Tom Joyner will be the keynote speaker for the Lifetime Members Luncheon and former TSU drum major Rev. Reginald “Action” Thompson will be the keynote speaker for the Excellence In Achievement Awards Banquet.
“As hosts, the Dallas Chapter is looking forward to TSU Tiger Nation coming to Dallas,” said Bernard Clark, president of the TSUNAA Dallas Chapter. “We plan to make your experience here in Dallas one to remember. We have one of the best venues in Dallas for the convention at an affordable rate, plus the entertainment we have planned is exceptional.”
“I invite all alumni to attend the 2014 TSU National Alumni Convention in Dallas,” said Connie Cochran, TSU’s director of Alumni Relations. “This is your chance to meet national officers of TSUNAA, members of the University administration, and fellowship with TSU Tigers from across the country. It is vital ALL alumni become involved and play a role in the future of the University and the National Alumni Association. As a proud alumna of Texas Southern University, and a Life Member of the Alumni Association I encourage alumni to reconnect with fellow classmates and the University.  As alumni it is not only our responsibility, but our duty to give back. Our accomplishments and potential for excellence are rooted in those who work tirelessly to make TSU great. Make your commitment NOW to become involved. I sincerely look forward to seeing everyone in Dallas.”
