Word document chronicling the history of the Department of Health and Human Performance from its 1926 beginnings as one of the first departments in the newly founded Junior College of the Lower Rio Grande Valley, to its latest (2008) incarnation as Health & Human Performance at UTB/TSC.
The department began its history as the Physical Education and Athletics Department, which continued until 1978 when the two entities were separated. The Physical Education Department subsequently underwent several name changes until its current designation as the Department of Health and Human Performance. Along with changes of name, the department also experienced many changes of personnel, context, content and mission, which are chronicled in this paper.
