Roller Girls are ready to rumble

Thanks to Cassandra Reid, administrative assistant at the North Campus, for providing the following info about an upcoming event that may be of interest to San Jacinto College employees.

Cassandra (shown in related photo, far right, first row) is a member of Rocket City Roller Girls, who compete in Roller Derby competitions at the Skate World roller rink in Deer Park. “The majority of our team is either current students, past students, graduates, and/or work(ed) for San Jacinto College,” she said. “I think there may be just 1 or 2 that haven’t been involved with SJC.  Some employees have attended a game or two and loved it.”

The Rocket City Roller Girls will host a game at Skate World on July 1. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the game starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets at the door are $12 per person. Children under 10 are admitted free.

Admission cost to the game will be half price to anyone who provides ID proof of being a teacher, EMT, firefighter, police officer, or military member (or veteran).
