    2016 Legacy Educator Award 

    Iota Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc.

    American Education Week

    Legacy Educator Award

    In 1921, The National Education Association (NEA) called for the designation of one week each year to spotlight education.  During the month of November, in observance of American Education Week, Iota Phi Lambda Sorority honors a distinguished legacy educator who has made outstanding contributions in the fields of education and business. The sorority honors legacies because of their generational commitment to helping others realize their dreams.

    Founded in 1929 in Chicago, Illinois, this distinction was first celebrated nationally by the sorority in 1947. The founding of the sorority was important for African American women because after World War I there was the “Great Migration” of African Americans from the South to the Northern cities in search of opportunities and a more tolerant society.  With this migration, changes underscored the need to learn new skills within a new economic environment. These skills, in turn, would hopefully ensure a better way of life for millions of African Americans who migrated northward.

    Dr. Carla Garrett, who is a fourth generation educator, was recognized for her diverse skill set and her contributions to society.  With a background in educational leadership, business and language arts, she has spearheaded several programs that have enhanced the lives of learners of all ages.  Some of her contributions include aiding in the creation of a GED program for homeless women in East Texas, and partnering with the University of Memphis to initiate the integrated reading, writing and technology programs in Tennessee middle schools through the Race for the Top initiative.

    The awards program took place on November 19, 2016 in Houston, Texas, where Dr. Garrett received the 2016 Legacy Educator Award.

    Calling all kiddos! Audition for ‘Santa’s Christmas Magic: The Musical’ 

    The San Jacinto College Department of Theatre and Film is looking for elves for its annual Christmas show.

    Auditions for 50 children, from ages 4 to 16, will take place on the Central Campus in the Powell Arena Theatre on Nov. 16 and 17, starting at 6 p.m. Materials need not be prepared in advance, and all those auditioning should dress to move. There is no fee for participation, and the auditions are open to children from anywhere; no registration at the College is required.

    Once selected, the Children’s Elf Chorus actors will be required to attend four evenings of rehearsals and will appear in up to six scenes in the show. “Santa’s Christmas Magic: The Musical” performances are set for Dec. 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m., and on Dec. 4 and 11 at 2:30 p.m. Special day matinee performances will be performed for area schools and day cares on Dec. 1 and 2.

    “The older actors were cast several weeks ago and have been working hard learning lines, songs and dances,” said Dr. Jerry Ivins, artistic director for the musical. “Now the artistic team for the musical is hoping to cast local children who have one week of evenings open for rehearsals. We encourage all children who can sing, dance, tumble, act, or that just have an interest in theatre to come out. No experience is necessary.”

    Further information about the auditions may be obtained by calling 281-542-2039. To become a fan of the Theatre and Film program on Facebook, visit facebook.com/SJCC.Theatre.Film.
