Parents Association


The Parents' Association was first originated in 1925 when Sam Houston State Teachers College celebrated it's first Parents' Day.  It was such a success that the association elected officers and officially became the Parents' Association on November 5, 1926.  It later became incorporated in 1979 as a non-profit association whose membership consists of parents and friends of students of Sam Houston State University.  Currently the Parents' Association is transitioning its non-profit status to become an official part of the university to be maintained in the Dean of Students' Office. 



Sam Houston State University Parents' Association exists to provide the opportunity for active participation and demonstrate that caring continues when students leave home to pursue higher education.
