    North Campus Upward Bound students and staff members did something out of the ordinary to culminate their recent summer session. The group typically visits a university campus at the end of the six-week session. This year, they pitched in to help out in a worthy cause – traveling to central Oklahoma to take part in ongoing recovery efforts from the devastating tornadoes that struck the area in May.

    UBMS recognized 

    The Board of Trustees recently recognized Jacqueline Howard, director of the Upward Bound Math and Science program, for her leadership and dedication.

    Based on a successful track record, a federal grant was recently renewed that will fund UBMS at the North Campus for another five-year cycle.

    UBMS is a collaboration between the College and high schools in the Channelview, Sheldon, and Galena Park independent school districts. Selected students from the schools are piloted through their high school years, beginning in the ninth grade, and are encouraged to pursue postsecondary degrees in math and science.

    With Howard (holding the recognition certificate) are Dr. Sarah Janes, and Serita Dickey (who helped Howard apply for the initial UBMS grant), and Dr. Allatia Harris, president of the North Campus.

    “I am so proud of all of you for pursuing your academic interests in associate, bachelor, and masters degree programs,” she said. “Your commitment to our San Jacinto College student success initiatives is enhanced by your commitment to your own success.

    Bird fan eats crow 

    Co-workers presented Cardinals fan Michael Moore a souvenir broom when the Astros recently swept the Cardinals in a three-game series.

    Co-workers presented Cardinals fan Michael Moore a souvenir broom when the Astros recently swept the Cardinals in a three-game series.

    St. Louis Cardinals fan Michael Moore had to eat some crow whenever the Astros recently swept the Birds in a three-game series played at Minute Maid Park. His San Jacinto College co-workers piled on Moore big time – placing Astros magnets all over the file cabinets near his office, and presenting him with a broom in a bucket.

    Here’s Moore’s take on the razzing he took in Q&A format:

    Q: Who provided the broom in the bucket and the Astros magnets? A: Cathy Rau decorated my office, but everyone had a hand in it. (Cathy has a mean streak, but Gloria Ramirez is brutal).

    Q: How hard is it to be a Cardinals fan in Houston? A: I have fun with Astros fans.  What really matters is finishing ahead of the Cubs.

    Q: Why root for the Cardinals? What is your connection to St. Louis? A: My grandpa got me started rooting for the Cardinals when I was 5. I’m from Cedar Rapids, Iowa and you were either a Cardinals fan or a Cubs fan.

    Q: What was your initial reaction whenever you were presented the broom (signifying the Cardinals were swept by the Astros)? A: Hey, if you dish it out, sometimes you have to take it. The Astros-Cardinals banter helps keep our office loose (Moore is director of the Office of Grants Management). We made the trip together to Minute Maid Park as a group last year. I give as much as I take. When the Cardinals win the World Series, I’ll have the last word.

    Q. It’s a long season. Which team will win the National League Central Division? A: The Cardinals, of course!

    Q: Many feel Cardinals’ slugger Albert Pujols is the best current player in Major League baseball. What is your take? A: Hello? Did you just ask me if he is the best in baseball? Heck yes he is!

    Q: If it turns out that the Astros and Cardinals end the regular season tied for first place (which would necessitate a one-game playoff match), and if the playoff game were to be played in Houston, and if you attended the playoff game — which team would you be cheering for? A: The Cardinals, of course! If the Astros won, I’d never hear the end of it. I learned one thing from Cubs fans; you stick with your team regardless of the outcome. The Cubs have been waiting for more than 100 years!
