Alumni recognized for their distinguished community service

The University’s Black Alumni Association has selected alumni Charles A McClelland Jr., chief of the Houston Police Department, and Mary Prince, owner of Rookies Cookies and Without Ceasing Prayer Stools, to be the recipients of the 2014 UH Black Alumni Association Distinguished Alumni Awards.

Prince and McClelland were recognized for their achievements on March 22. McClelland joined HPD in 1977 as a patrol officer and was sworn in as police chief in 2010. He earned a bachelor’s degree in criminology from UH in 1998 and a master’s in sociology in 2000. Prince received her bachelor’s in graphic design from UH in 1983.

The mission of UHBAA is to create and nurture lifelong relationships between its key stakeholders, the University and its black alumni and friends; support and advance black alumni in their pursuit of excellence; and exemplify goodwill in the community. The progress of UHBAA and its growth comes as a result of alumni who care to give back to the University through UHBAA by sharing their time, talents and treasures.
