Take Pride

As a member of the Alumni Association, you're in the company of excellence. Each year we honor many of the exceptional students, first-rate teachers, and distinguished leaders who make us proud. Their significant contributions to our great university and country inspire all of us to do our best!

In addition to President Lyndon B. Johnson, luminaries include Ponce "Heloise" Cruse ('74), who writes the popular "Heloise to the Rescue" Good Housekeeping monthly column and has written 11 books, hosted a national radio show, and is a nationally known speaker; the Country Music Hall of Famer, George Strait ('79), who has had more Number One hits of any singer of any kind of music in history; and star of stage, screen, and television Powers Booth ('70), who was inducted into the Texas Hall of Fame in 2009.
