Those who plan to attend are asked to bring donations of non-perishable food items to benefit the S.A.A.F.E. House in Huntsville.
Each semester, the Parents' Association hosts two Apple Days giving out more than 1,200 apples, hundreds of candy bars, and 5,000 Scantrons to Sam Houston students. The association purchases the items to give students a treat before finals.
"We know how stressful final exams can be, so we like to show our support to the entire student body and hope they each do well on their tests and final projects," says Kelly Clements, president of the association.
The Parents' Association is an organization of Sam Houston parents who actively support students through awarding scholarships and hosting special events. The association raises funds from member dues and events for its annual scholarships.
The association assists with planning Parents' Weekend each fall semester, meets with new SHSU parents during summer orientation and hosts a Homecoming tailgate party in addition to Apple Days each semester.
Parents, guardians and families of Sam Houston students are encouraged to join the association not only to support students, but also to have a primary link to the university. Through events like Parents' Weekend and a periodically published newsletter, members stay involved and informed about campus issues, events and news.
