    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.”

    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.
