    Open house marks opening of new child care center at North campus 

    The North campus recently hosted an open house and ribbon cutting to mark the opening of the new Charles Ray Ogden Children and Family Education Center-Lab School building.

    The open house featured guided tours, multi-media presentations, live music, and light refreshments. The new 9,669-square-feet facility is located on the north side of the North campus.

    Guests were welcomed by Kathy Greenway, director of the child care center-lab school, and Christine Ortiz-Gatlin, the North campus child development/early childhood education program director.

    The new center includes classrooms, offices, a kitchen, a teacher workroom, a multi-purpose room, and a playground. The facility serves a dual purpose — to provide child care services for students and employees of the North campus, and to serve as a learning environment where North campus child development students can gain valuable hands-on experience in every facet of full-service child care.

    For a worthy cause 

    Some of the San Jac group that participated in the Relay for Life.

    Hats off to North campus employees Tina Sanchez and Tom Cortez, who coordinated San Jacinto College’s group that participated in the recent Relay For Life, an annual event that raises funds for the American Cancer Society.

    The San Jacinto College team, that included 114 employees and students (and relatives of students and employees), raised $2,200 to go to cancer research.

    The walk was staged at the North Shore Senior High Ninth Grade Center athletic track in the North Channel area. Walkers gathered at dusk and walked through the night until dawn of the next day.

    Congratulations to all of the employees who donated your time and effort for such a worthy cause.
