    English profs enjoy a ‘storybook’ wedding 

    Barbara Brown, Central Campus English department chair, provides the following account of a recent interesting event —

    “I don’t think this has ever happened in the history of the Central Campus English Department — two of our full-time English professors have gotten married. Julie Groesch joined the department in 2010, and Robb Flynn joined the department in 2012. Their wedding was May 28.

    There are 3 related photos.  One is from the May 6 shower the Central English Department threw for them, and the other two are from the wedding reception.  As only English profs would do, they had their wedding caked designed to represent their favorite novels.”

    Congratulations to the newlyweds, and good luck with their “storybook” wedding, and may they live happily ever after !!!

    Students, faculty, staff give senior group royal treatment 

    Jobe Group

    Senior citizens from Pasadena’s Madison Jobe Senior Center recently dropped by for “pampering” at Central Campus. Culinary arts students prepared lunch for them and cosmetology students provided free hair styling.

    Kudos to all the Central Campus people who helped to make the event a huge success, including Kay Richardson, Consumer Services Department Chair; David Vanover, Interior Design Program Director; Ernest Becerra, Culinary Arts Program Director; Marsha Smith, Cosmetology Adjunct Instructor; and Kathy Burris, Consumer Services Senior Administrative Assistant.

    Photography Challenge: Back to School 

    Back-to-school photo sample.

    Back-to-school photo sample.

    The San Jacinto College Employee Photography Club is kicking off the year with a photography challenge: Back to School.  Take a photo of a back-to-school scene. The photo should be representative of school in some manner.  Your back-to-school scene may be a person, or a group, or even just school-related items.  It doesn’t have to be at San Jac although we love our SJC pics!  For an additional challenge, use the depth of field in your photo to focus on one area while gently blurring elements in front of and/or behind the focal point.

    To participate, simply bring your photo on a USB drive with you to the first photography club meeting on September 18 @ 11:30am in the Central Campus ILC, room 110.  You may also contact Chris Duke (chris.duke@sjcd.edu) to request access to the club website and upload your photo to the club site or share it via Flickr.

    The San Jacinto College Employee Photography club works to create a collaborative learning community of photographers among college employees and their families. All San Jac employees, retirees, spouses, and dependents are invited to participate in Club meetings and activities.  Individual club employee members are responsible, in collaboration with their leader, for maintaining their personal work schedules in relation to club activities and any wellness release time. Minor dependents must be accompanied by the college employee at all club activities.
