Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Don't forget to send your Go Texan Day pictures to the Houston Press Flickr page, where glory awaits.

Meanwhile, we have two entries from the Educators category. Above, Drew Houlihan -- the principal at Parker Elementary, HISD's music magnet and piece of Beyoncé history -- sets the bar very high for his competitors. A hat, sure. A cowboy wave, yeah. A horse?

Ball's in your court, other principals, teachers and educators.

Next is a more well-known member of this category....

UH President Renu Khator rides a desk instead of a horse, but she also misses a key opportunity.

"Showing my Texan pride," she wrote on her Twitter page. "I must say boots are lot more comfortable than high heels!"

Dude: The only proper photo in that case is you leaning back, your boot-clad feet crossed casually on the desk. Work it!!

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
