A Great Day for San Jacinto

Two significant anniversaries occur in 2011: the 175th anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto, and the 50th anniversary of San Jacinto College. Thanks largely to San Jacinto College history professor Dr. Eddie Weller, the College had a display booth at the recent San Jacinto Day Festival and Battle Reenactment. SJC culinary arts pastry chef students, under the direction of Steve Rudd, baked large cakes bearing anniversary wishes to Texas and to San Jacinto College, and SJC employees gave away slices of cake to people attending the big festival held at the San Jacinto Battlegrounds. SJC employees who helped out in the event include Amanda Booren, Rob Vanya, Jessica Elizondo, Kaye Moon Winters, Hollie Fulsom, Dr. Kerry Mix, Joshua Wilson, Dana Eifert, and LaVena Wilder.
