Austin, TEXAS – On Saturday, April 27, State Representative Rhetta Andrews Bowers (HD 113) will be honored at Texas Southern University's third annual Maroon & Gray Affair as a distinguished alumnus for her accomplishments and dedication to the state and to the University.

“Since the University's inception in 1927, there has been a countless amount of distinguished alumni who have gone on to have a positive impact in their communities and around the world. It is an absolute honor to be named as a part of this renowned group of alumni by Texas Southern. I am very much looking forward to returning to campus on Saturday to celebrate with my fellow Tigers."

The purpose of the Maroon and Gray Affair is for Texas Southern to partner with the Houston community to raise scholarship funds. This enables the University to provide scholarships for deserving students who excel in their areas of study - as well as for students who might not otherwise have an opportunity to pursue a college education.

“Texas Southern University has played a big role in shaping who I have become in life. Everything that I learned and experienced during my time on campus has helped me accomplish whatever dreams I have set my mind towards, including becoming a member of the Texas House of Representatives. It is an amazing privilege to be invited back to campus to share my journey to success and to inspire current students in attendance to follow their own dreams."

The Maroon and Gray Affair will be held at the Marriott Marquis in Houston, TX and will start at 6:30 p.m. As of now, the event is sold out. For more information, please visit
