Thank You: A Tribute to Ms. Peggy Byers

As most of you know, our show began back at our local college in Louisiana. STR8UP wouldn’t be where it is today without professors who pushed us for greatness like Peggy Byers. We are sadden that the Mother of The STR8UP family is no longer with us, so it’s only fitting we pay tribute to her in our Season 5 opener.

Thank you for everything Ms. Byers!
