“We would like to thank H-E-B for their continued support of our University, and we are very excited about our partnership moving forward,” said Teis. “It is a privilege to have such an outstanding community partner, and we look forward to watching our relationship grow.”

The partnership renewal calls for H-E-B to be presenting sponsor of the football season for the next five years in the new term.
