    Prairie View’s 40 under 40 award recognizes 40 alumni under the age of 40 who use their experience at Prairie View to impact communities. “Our motto is ‘Prairie View Produces Productive People’ and being in this inaugural class is a tremendous honor,” Dr. Gilmore said.

    Dr. Gilmore has indeed blazed a trail in her field. She earned a bachelor’s degree in less than four years from Prairie View, transferred to Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California where she earned a master’s of science in marriage and family therapy. While studying at Fuller, she participated in mission work in Africa along with six other female graduate students. The students assisted communities and visited schools throughout Uganda.

    After graduating from Fuller, she worked as a family therapist in Compton, California for a non-profit organization prior to moving to Houston. Through other non-profit organizations, she provided in-home therapeutic services and education in communities around the city of Houston, including Sunnyside, Alief, Fifth Ward, Baytown, and Pasadena before beginning her teaching tenure at San Jacinto College.

    She has also presented and facilitated programs at professional conferences across the state of Texas. During her doctoral studies at Texas Southern University, she was a member of Chi Sigma Iota Honor Society, later graduating magna cum laude.

    In addition to teaching Learning Framework at the North Campus, she serves as a mentor and faculty advisor.

    Dr. Gilmore holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Prairie View, a master’s in marriage and family therapy from Fuller, and a doctor of education in counselor education from TSU.

    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 !!!

    Jerrel Wade honored as outstanding alumnus 

    Congratulations to Dr. Jerrel Wade, Dean of Administration at the North Campus, who was recently recognized in the University of Houston College of Education newsletter as an outstanding alumnus. Each edition of their newsletter features a graduate who is making a contribution to the field of education.

    Dr. Wade

    Dr. Wade

    Dean Wade holds an Ed.D. in Administration and Supervision from UH. He also holds a bachelor’s degree, and a master’s degree in education from the University of Oklahoma.

    Dr. Wade began work for San Jacinto College in 2006 as the South Campus Coordinator of Student Life. In 2008, he became the Director of Recruitment Initiatives for the District. In 2013, he assumed his current role as Dean of Administration.

    Dr. Wade was surprised, but honored when he learned of his outstanding alumnus recognition. “It’s always a good feeling to be recognized for your efforts,” he commented. “I was nominated by Dr. Lyle McKinney, who was one of my professors at UH. He also served as my program advisor and dissertation chair.”

    Dr. Wade and his wife Alicia have been married 10 years, and they have a 7-year-old son named Jonathan.

    Jerrel says education has played a role in every success in his life, directly or indirectly. “I’ve had the opportunity to present at, and travel to, various conferences around the country, and by doing so I have met and worked with amazing people in the field,” he said. “My commitment to education shaped my career path, which has now allowed me to give back and help guide students to make the most of their opportunities. In short, I love what I do and look forward to many more years helping students achieve their goals, however I can.”
