Dear Fellow TAMU-CC Alumni – My name is Mariaha Pedder, and have the honor to serve as President of the Houston Islander Alumni Chapter. I have previously held the position of Secretary and Events Coordinator for the Chapter. As one of over 3,000 Houston area Islander Alumni, I’m excited about the next two years and what it holds as we partner and grow our chapter with the University.
The rest of the Executive Alumni Board, we would like to extend an invitation to all of those who want to get more involved in the Chapter and our Alma Mater. We host a number of events throughout the year to provide opportunities to connect. Be sure to follow the Houston Islander Alumni Chapter on Facebook. And I look forward to meeting you at an event very soon!
