Good Evening San Jacinto College Community,

I hope you stayed warm this week-end!  When I hear about the weather in the northern and eastern parts of our country, I know that we have nothing to complain about, but, gosh, those were chilly temperatures for southeast Texas!!

Black History Month:  Since 1976, every American President has designated February as Black History Month.  San Jacinto College has a variety of activities scheduled to celebrate Black History Month so be sure to check out the events.

Eligibility included those full and part-time employees who had significant involvement in the accomplishment of a project, process or initiative.  The team must have exemplified sustained, exceptional performance above and beyond expectations for the completion of deliverables identified in the annual priorities or strategic goals.   Read the rest of this entry »

Good afternoon San Jacinto College Community –

I love to talk about the amazing work going on at San Jacinto College.  Just yesterday, I was invited by a professor to his EDUC 1300 class where students were discussing the value of education, its impact on society, and what steps they needed to take to achieve their goals.  I then met with reporters who were interviewing our students about the tremendous career opportunities available in our region for students who complete their credentials in several of our technical programs.  I wrapped up the afternoon with an interview on the work that San Jacinto College is doing to engage public education and business and industry partners around the implementation of House Bill 5.  It was an exciting first day back from Thanksgiving break!!
