    Instructor coordinates gingerbread house village project 

    Students were graded for the gingerbread houses they built.

    Students were graded for the gingerbread houses they built.

    Building gingerbread houses, a popular holiday activity, became a means for San Jacinto College pastry arts students to improve culinary skills in a recent class project.

    “During this time of year, pastry chefs all over town create gingerbread houses and villages,” commented San Jacinto College pastry chef instructor Andrea Huerta, who conceived the concept, and coordinated the gingerbread house village class project. “Gingerbread house displays are commonly found in country clubs and hotels and it’s always the pastry chef that creates them. Putting together an entire village is quite an undertaking, and I wanted my students to build a village as a way of getting hands-on work experience.”

    The pastry arts students created their individual houses, which collectively were grouped as a village, entirely from scratch. “They were not permitted to use store-bought kits because kits are more expensive than making everything from scratch,” said Huerta. “That’s what would be expected in the industry, as restaurants are always watching their bottom line.”

    Each student was individually responsible for the entire house-making process, which included making the dough, portioning, rolling, baking, creating a design template, assembly and decoration. The class as a whole collaborated to create the village, which was on public display for a week.

    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.”
