    San Jacinto College Website Update 

    Hello San Jacinto College community! As you are aware, we have been working hard on a new SanJac.edu. The website will have a new look and feel, new catalog, better navigation, better search, functional calendars, and, well, pretty much better everything.

    To pack all of these improvements into one roll out takes time, and while we had hoped to launch the new site today, we realize that last week’s two day College closure has caused delays in reviewing and updating content. The new launch date will be Tuesday, April 2. Please be prepared for the new SanJac.edu on that day. We look forward to introducing the new site.

    Condolences 

    Our deepest sympathies go to Melissa Peters on the recent passing of her grandfather, Charles Flint.

    Charles “Chick” Ray Flint of Deer Park, Texas passed away at the age of 87 years old on March 13. He was born in Bristow, Oklahoma on June 8, 1931 to Robert L Flint and Janie L Wilcox Flint.

    Chick served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War from 1953 – 1955. He attended East Texas State University in Commerce, Texas where he completed his BBA in 1955. He was employed by Texaco Oil Company from 1955 – 1972 when he accepted a position at San Jacinto College as Assistant Comptroller until 1975. He continued to follow his dream by completing his Master’s Degree in Education from Sam Houston State University. This opened the door to his true calling to be a professor of Business Administration and chairman of his department at San Jacinto College until his retirement in 1994.

    Chick is survived by his wife of 64 years, Peggy Shepherd Flint; daughters Nancy Cathey and husband David, Julia Golden, Amy Peters and husband Mike; grandchildren Alana Munoz and husband Greg, Michael Golden and wife Brittany, Travis Pennington and wife Julie, Felicia Golden, Liana Golden, Justin Peters and Melissa Peters.

    Pizza with Police Event 

    The San Jacinto College Police Department passed out Pizza and drinks to students, employees, and visitors at all the Central, North and South Campuses in February. They were able to meet the campus police officers and enjoy a slice of free pizza.

    The event’s goal was to engage with the students and bring awareness to the college community of the services and mission of the police department and to also build positive connections between police officers and the community they serve.

    This event builds on a positive relationship with the college community by engaging and interacting with them. The officers passed out pizza and had conversations with the students as the cart with the food traveled from building to building.
