    Dual credit students recognized 

    North campus dual credit students recently gathered for an end-of-term recognition banquet to celebrate their accomplishments as high-achieving students.

    The dual credit students honored at the banquet were from C.E. King, Channelview, Crosby, North Shore, and Galena Park high schools.

    At the event, students, faculty and staff bade a fond farewell to Dr. Dennis Toombs, who is retiring after serving as a government professor for many years at San Jacinto College. Dr. Toombs attended the event because he served as an instructor for many of the dual credit students.

    Kudos to all who helped to make the recognition banquet a big success, especially to the main coordinators Jennifer Mowdy, Cathy Andrusick, and Mary Cherry.

    Chris Duke earns his doctorate degree 

    Friends and co-workers got together and threw a surprise graduation celebration for Chris Duke, Director of Curriculum Development, Innovation and Assessment.

    Chris recently earned his doctorate degree from Texas A&M University, so he is now officially Dr. Duke (kinda has a nice ring to it).

    A shiny, blinky star was pinned to the shirt of the star graduate to signify his brilliance, and everyone enjoyed cake, punch, and fellowship with the proud new graduate. Chris was also surprised when his wife Misty showed up at the party (along with their three cute daughters) to join the celebration.

    Congratulations Dr. Duke on your outstanding achievement, and thanks for all you do for San Jacinto College!
