There are more than 14,000 University of Houston alums who live in the Fort Bend County area. Their dedication to their alma mater is illustrated in year-round activities to create scholarships for future Cougars.
The tradition continues on March 20, as golfers tee up for the 21st Annual Coach Bill Yeoman Scholarship Golf Tournament. The event will be held at the Sugar Creek Country Club. Proceeds benefit the Bill & A.J. Yeoman/Fort Bend Endowed Scholarship and the Reservoir Geophysical/Carolyn & Jerry Warren Endowed Scholarship.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. Shotgun start at 10 a.m. Entry fee includes greens fees, cart, range balls, breakfast, lunch, dinner and beverages on the course. There are various sponsorship levels. Visit the Houston Alumni's event page for more information or contact FortBendAlumni@uh.edu.
Alton and Carolyn Warren are longtime supporters of the University of Houston, advocating for students at the UH Sugar Land Campus and the Main Campus. Yeoman is the UH legendary football coach who over 25 seasons from 1962-1986 earned 160 victories, the most in Houston's history and 51st on the NCAA all-time wins list.
The UH Fort Bend Alumni Club was organized in 1995. Their activities throughout the year raise funds for graduating Fort Bend high school students who wish to attend UH. To date, students have received more than $200,000 in scholarships.
