Igniting connections: UHV to host alumni mixer in Katy
Houston-area alumni are invited to reunite and connect with their fellow alumni at a networking mixer later this month.
The Social Pub & Grill, 1721 Spring Green Blvd. in Katy, will be hosting the mixer from 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 15.
“This will be a great chance for alumni to interact with each other to expand their professional network while also staying in touch with the university,” said Kelsey Norgard, UHV director of alumni relations and annual giving.
The last alumni mixer was held in July at Top Golf in Houston.
“As we celebrate 50 years of UHV, it is more important than ever that we offer fun and meaningful ways for our alumni to stay engaged and informed about the university,” said Amber Countis, UHV vice president for advancement and external relations. “They are the university’s lifeblood and future as well as our best advocates and cheerleaders.”
Attendees who need special accommodations or access should contact Norgard at firstname.lastname@example.org or 361-570-4869. Those planning to attend should RSVP by Nov. 10 at uhvconnect.org/events.
“Our Katy-area alumni and friends are always a positive and energetic group, and we look forward to a fun event. Please come join us!” Countis said.
