Alma Mater

(Houston Community College School Song)
Words and Music by Dr. Aubrey S. Tucker (2010)

All hail our alma mater
All hail to HCC
Where we soar with the eagles
Strong in unity
To Houston Community College
To friends and teachers true
We will always be grateful
When we think of you

And when we pass your portal
To our new communities
We will not forget our journey
Robed in victory
Farewell our alma mater
To friends and teachers true
We will always be grateful
When we think of you.
