    Surplus items available through online auction system 

    San Jacinto College employees:

    Effective this fiscal year, 2016, San Jacinto College will begin using an online auction system managed by Lone Star Auctioneers to dispose of its surplus non-computer property.  Previously, the College used a site auction service to dispose of surplus which limited buyer accessibility as well as profits.  This process has been abandoned in an attempt to gain greater revenue for the College by reaching a larger audience of potential buyers through an online system.

    At this time, the auction will continue utilizing the same disposal process.  Once an item is cleared for auction, it will be stored at our central location, currently in the old natatorium on Central Campus.  After items are placed in our central location for storage, the College staff will have one last opportunity to repurpose these assets.  Auxiliary Services will provide periodic notices that lists the items available via the P: drive.   Auxiliary Services will place these surplus items up for auction after a period of time.  By using this new system, the college hopes to increase revenues generated from its surplus sales.

    Auxiliary Services, specifically, Richard Serna, will be responsible for the online auction process.  He can be emailed at DL- Surplus Property and the three scheduled auctions are listed below. He can also be reached by phone at (281) 922-3465. Since this is specialized equipment, the items were not placed on the P: drive to be repurposed. Please make sure to take a look at our first auction, which goes live tomorrow at http://www.lonestaronline.com/listings/categories/index.cfm?category=1403184924.

    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.

    Women’s basketball team culminates amazing season with awards banquet 

    The College’s women’s basketball team recently culminated one of the best seasons in the program’s history with an appreciation and awards banquet.

    In an amazing turnaround season, the team went from 3-27 last year to 23-9 this season. Head Coach Brenita Jackson was named the National Junior College Athletic Association Region XIV Coach of the Year. The team was ranked nationally for much of the season appearing as high as ninth in the NJCAA Division I Women’s Basketball poll in early January. It was the first time in the program’s history to be ranked in the top 10 nationally.

    The team qualified for the regional tournament for the first time since 2011, advancing to the semifinal round before being eliminated by the defending national champions Trinity Valley Junior College.

    Three players earned honors for their accomplishments during the 2014-2015 season. The team’s leading scorer, sophomore guard Kendra Howard (Dallas / Cedar Hill High School), who averaged 15.5 points per game, was named to the All-Region Team. Freshman guard Miranda LeJune (Pearland / Pearland High School), who led the nation in assists with 8.1 per game, was named to the All-Conference Team and earned the Region XIV Co-Freshman of the Year honor. Freshman forward Kaelynn Wilson (San Antonio / Wagner High School) earned All-Conference Honorable Mention recognition.

    At the banquet, players, coaches, and support staff members were recognized for their dedication and achievements.
