    Ride of Silence 

    On behalf of Ruben C. Ramirez Jr.

    Approximately 100 cyclists took to the road at Memorial Park for the recent Ride of Silence, collecting more individual cyclists and bike clubs along the route, which greatly increased the number of riders to remember fallen cyclists in the Houston area. This is a global event held each year to remember injured or fallen riders.

    Ricardo Martinez, Jessica Wild and Ruben Ramirez with the SJC Cycling Club participated in this event on Wednesday, May 21, in honor of Clyde J. Johnson. Mr. Johnson was a SJC North Campus student who passed away in April while biking. This is the first time the cycling club has participated in this ride. (More …)

    Calling all shutterbugs 

    The San Jacinto College Employee Photography Club will meet on Friday, May 30 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at the Central Campus in the ILC Kaleidoscope Room (C-1.102).  Bring your lunch!  The club is open to all current college employees, retirees, and employee’s spouses and children (minors must be accompanied by their guardian at all times) with an interest in photography.  Photographers at all levels of experience and proficiency – novice to professional – are welcome.

    The meeting will cover two topics.  BRING YOUR CAMERAS!  We will talk through and do some hands-on activities related to exposure: shutter speed, aperture, and ISO.  The goal is to be able to experiment with program, shutter, and aperture modes on your camera.  If you have experience with those techniques/modes, be prepared to work with a small group of those that need a mentor.  We will also spend 20-30 minutes reviewing the websites the club is using and how we plan to use each. Feel free to bring a laptop if you’d like to be hands-on during this segment.

    If you have questions about the Employee Photography Club, contact a club facilitator:
    Chris Duke (chris.duke@sjcd.edu, 281-998-6128) or
    David LeMaster (david.lemaster@sjcd.edu, ext 1561)
