San Jacinto College unveils Texas Historical Marker

Have you seen the beautiful new Texas Historical Marker at San Jacinto College?

More than 200 elected officials, community members, and former and current San Jacinto College employees joined Chancellor Dr. Brenda Hellyer and members of the Harris County Historical Commission to unveil an official Texas Historical Marker in honor of the College’s 50th anniversary, on Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2012.

The marker dedication and unveiling ceremony culminated a yearlong celebration throughout the College in honor of its Golden Anniversary. The celebrations kicked off on Sept. 18, 2011 with San Jacinto Day, and included campus activities throughout the year, a gala that raised more than $200,000 for student scholarships, a family picnic for employees, and this week’s marker dedication and unveiling.

The marker is located in front of the Interactive Learning Center on the San Jacinto College Central Campus.
