HOUSTON - The University of Houston Athletics Department inducted six individuals and the 1976 Houston Football Team into its Hall of Honor last Friday night in the annual Hall of Honor gala that raised a gross total $400,000 for Cougar Pride. 

The most successful Hall of Honor in terms of dollars raised, the event was co-chaired by Darryl and Lori Schroeder and Robert and Susie Kneppler with Patty Godfrey serving as the event's Special Advisor.

Golfer Jacky Cupit, football running back Paul Gipson, volleyball star Rose Magers-Powell, baseball pitcher Brad Sullivan, defensive coordinator Don Todd, women's track and field sprinter Jackie Washington and the 1976 Football were inducted as members of the 2012 class.

Over 40 current student-athletes were on hand volunteering at Friday night's gala as they gave back to those who support them while also honoring their predecessors in the athletics field.

Prior to the induction ceremonies, attendees enjoyed a silent and a live auction and big board. Dancing with music was provided by Radio London. Houston Golf legend and former NCAA individual national champion Billy Ray Brown served as master of ceremonies at the event.

Net proceeds benefit student-athlete scholarships through Cougar Pride, the fundraising arm of the Athletics Department. Student-athlete scholarships account for more than $5.3 million during the 2012-13 academic year.

By purchasing a ticket or reserving a table, Hall of Honor attendees impacted the lives of nearly 400 student-athletes that represent the University of Houston. It marked the 19th class into the Hall of Honor and the eighth since the Hall was reintroduced in 1998. The current class brings the membership to 94 individuals and two teams. Inductees are honored in a display located inside the Houston Athletics/Alumni Center.
