Back 2 School Fest 2014
August 16, 2014
Mayor Annise Parker welcomed thousands of pre-registered students and their families to the 4th Annual Mayor's Back to School Fest on Saturday, August 16, 2014. Joining Mayor Parker for the opening ceremony and ribbon-cutting were fest presenting sponsors Shell Oil Company and Motiva Enterprises LLC, host University of Houston, donors, participating agencies, and volunteers.
The event's purpose was to aid economically disadvantaged students grades K-5, who reside in the City of Houston, prepare for the new school year. Participation in the fest was offered by advance registration only. Families who were not able to pre-register to participate in the event are advised to call the 2-1-1 United Way Helpline for referrals to community agencies offering assistance.
The City of Houston is grateful to all of its sponsors, volunteers, and exhibitors for making this event a success and wishes all students great academic achievement in this school year!
