    Social Media Day Event 

    Dr. Jones with Cosmetology Students

    The Marketing, PR, and Government Affairs Office held Social Media Day on each campus last week.  It was a fun event that gave us an opportunity to promote social media, interact with students on campus, and encourage student engagement.  Photos from the event can be viewed on our Facebook Page.

    We would like to extend a huge thanks to a few programs and departments who helped to make the event a success:

    •  North Campus Culinary set up a cookie decorating station.
    • North Campus First Year Experience let us borrow their popcorn machine and one of their student workers was nice enough to stick around and help out with the popcorn.
    • Central Campus Rec Sports set up a game of volleyball and provided us with some giveaways.
    • Central Campus Career and Employment helped us at our social media table and provided us with some giveaways.
    • South Campus Cosmetology students set up face painting and manicure stations.
    • South Campus Student Life let us borrow their popcorn machine

    San Jac Patriot Day Classic a success! 

    San Jacinto College recently hosted the San Jac Patriot Day Classic, honoring our nation’s military veterans in observance of the Patriot Day holiday. In addition to another sweep of San Jac opponents, a Bell UH-1V Iroquois “Huey” helicopter landed on campus and was on display during the second day of the tournament. Tournament teams also recognized military veterans during a reception on Saturday afternoon. On the court, San Jac defeated Western Texas College 3-0 (25-19, 25-23, 25-21), Victoria College 3-0 (25-9, 25-18, 25-14), Temple College 3-0 (25-11, 28-26, 25-20), and Hill College 3-2 (25-16, 24-26, 17-25, 25-20, 15-11) to move to 8-4 on the season.

    Our deepest sympathies go to Judy Mason and Michele Thomas on the recent passing of their father and grandfather, Lovelace Joseph Trahan.

    Lovelace Joseph Trahan completed his life journey on September 5, 2014, at the age of 93 years. He joined his beloved wife of 65 years, Irene Ruth, in heaven. He left behind four daughters, including Judy Marie Mason, and 11 grandchildren, including Michele Mason Thomas; 12 great grandchildren and 1 great great grandchild.

    Lovelace was a native of Port Arthur. He graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School, where he was a member of the 1940 “State Relay Championship Team”. He served his country in World War II aboard the USS Proteus, a naval sub tender. He later retired from the Gulf Refinery.

    Lovelace was a loving and caring husband and father. He cherished his family above all else. He was laid to rest on September 9, 2014 at Melancons Funeral Home in Nederland, Texas.

    Judy Mason is the Sr. Executive Assistant to the Provost at South Campus and Michele Thomas is a Business Analyst, Enterprise Applications.
