      This was a remarkable event, very well planned by the MADD Walk Committee. One of the members of the North Channel Area Chamber served with that group and invited me out. The one thing that I heard from so many of the walkers and the vendors was how much they appreciated the willingness of Marina Keith to work with the community to make this event a success. Way to go Marina!

    San Jac students give back 

    Students in the San Jacinto College South Campus education students recently held a school supply drive to benefit children and families living within Pasadena ISD who are affected by homelessness. Students collected an estimated $5,000 worth of school supply donations.

    Earlier this year, the South Campus cosmetology department partnered with the Harris County Southeast Volunteer Fire Department to collect school supplies for students at Stuchbery Elementary, another Pasadena ISD school.  We thank our students, staff, and faculty for continuing to serve our local communities.
