Hello San Jacinto College Community –

As I reflect on the first two weeks of October, I have to smile. It has been an amazing two weeks! Let me give you some highlights.

We began the month with a celebratory 50th anniversary photograph with nearly 800 participants, including students, faculty, staff, administrators, trustees, and retirees. I was astonished at how quickly this activity came together and how festive it felt! Thank you to all of the participants and to the organizers!

Happy October San Jacinto College Community!

I don’t know what happened to September, but October and fall have arrived! And we have actually cooled off a bit! I hope you enjoyed some of the great Chamber of Commerce weather this weekend!

This past week we kicked off our 12-week courses (Take 2), so you may see a few more students around the campuses.

Hello San Jac —

What a week it has been. On behalf of the soccer team, South Campus, and the entire San Jacinto College community, I want to express my sincere appreciation for your outpouring of prayer, counsel, concerns, and financial support for the family and friends of Jose Perez. On Saturday, I went by the BBQ fundraiser, which was being held in conjunction with the women’s softball double, double-header. There was great attendance and wide support. I noticed a couple of our Gator baseball players cheering in the stands, and several Central Campus PTK students dishing up the BBQ. The fundraising event appeared to be a huge success. South Campus President, Maureen Murphy, will be sending out more details and an official thanks in the near future. Read the rest of this entry »
