Cougar Pride Hosts Annual Corbin J. Robertson Dinner

April 29, 2013

HOUSTON - Cougar Pride, the development arm of the University of Houston Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, held its annual Corbin J. Robertson Society and Endowment Dinner on April 11th to honor those donors of the program who pay the annual scholarship costs of UH student-athletes. There are currently 48 Corbin J. Robertson Society scholarships and 75 endowments for UH.

"We cannot thank our Corbin J. Robertson members enough for their continued support of Cougar Pride," said Jeramiah Dickey, Houston's Associate Athletics Director for External Relations. "We know they provide scholarships, not for the benefits received, but the impact their gift has on each and every one of our student-athletes. Our student-athletes' present and future success is dependent upon this group and we cannot ever repay them for their generosity."

This year, student-athletes Ameen Behbahani of football and Moira Fraser of swimming spoke on behalf of all participants at UH, thanking the donors for their generous support.


The unique element of the Corbin J. Robertson Society and Endowment Dinner is that student-athletes are able to interact on a personal level with the generous supporters that sponsor them directly. Softball athletes Diedre and Haley Outon received that opportunity as their sponsors Mark and Judy Cook were in attendance.

"This event makes it so much fun to give to the University of Houston," says Mark Cook. "We love the dinner and we love those girls. This dinner gives us the opportunity to really meet and speak with some of the fine student-athletes in our program. You can look them in the eyes, find out where they came from and truly meet them as individuals."

Each member of the Corbin J. Robertson Society underwrites the current cost for one full athletic scholarship. Society members have the privilege of being assigned a student-athlete and have numerous opportunities to nurture a personal relationship with the student during his or her collegiate career.
