The SHSU 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. The SHSU Parents' Association is an official university organization housed within the Dean of Students' Office. The SHSU Parents' Association will now include Alumni Association Parent Membership benefits.
