    SJC Foundation wants YOU to win! 

    It’s that time of the year to purchase a ticket for the Annual 50/50 Ball Drop, which is a part of the San Jacinto College Foundation Golf Tournament.

    For just $5 a ticket, purchase a chance for your numbered ball to fall into a designated hole on the putting green at Battleground Golf Course on Wednesday, Nov. 7, during our golf tournament.  The Ball Drop will take place between 3 and 4 p.m.  A crane will suspend the bucket of balls in the air above the putting green.  The balls will all be dropped at once and the first ball landing in the designated hole or closest to the hole wins one half (50 percent) of the money we raise from the sale of tickets.

    See how easy it is, and YES, your chances are as good as anyone else.  Come out and watch if you’d like, the golf course is located at 1600 Georgia in Deer Park.  You can’t miss us; we are right out front.

    Here’s your chance to participate in our golf tournament fundraiser, and remember all proceeds benefit YOUR students of YOUR College thru scholarships.

    We accept cash, check, credit cards or you can enjoy the convenience of payroll deductions. Print out the payroll deduction form below. Choose how many chances you’d like, sign the form, send it in and we’ll do the rest.  Send your form in today.

    Thanks in advance for your support and GOOD LUCK!!!!

    If you have any questions, please contact Charlotte at ext. 7526.

    Congratulations, Sharon! 

    Sharon Sledge, San Jacinto College mathematics professor, has been elected president of the Texas Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (TexMATYC).

    Sledge will serve in her new position for two years and represent Texas two-year community college mathematics’ faculty at state and national meetings. She has been a member of TexMATYC for 25 years and a faculty member at San Jacinto College for 31 years.

    “I’m excited about the opportunities to represent the association in Austin to discuss mathematics education in the state of Texas,” said Sledge, who also serves as event coordinator for all San Jacinto College robotics competitions that are affiliated with the national organization, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Tech Challenge. “By offering a statewide forum for the interchange of ideas among faculty and colleges, TexMATYC ultimately develops and improves the mathematics education and experiences of students in two-year colleges. With all the changes and challenges confronting mathematics at the legislative level, it is good to have our voice speaking on behalf of the math community.”

    The Texas association represents more than 1,500 mathematics faculty members from all community colleges across the state of Texas and is a partner to the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC).

    “Sharon Sledge’s appointment as president to this prestigious state committee evidences her commitment to mathematical education and demonstrates the confidence that her state wide colleagues have in her as they work together to provide a voice for the direction and development of mathematics education in the great state of Texas,” said Dr. Barbara Hanson, vice president for learning at the San Jacinto College Central Campus.
