    Thinking and Beyond QEP Design Winner 

    San Jacinto College Fine Arts student Jill B. Gilbert earned $300 for her winning design for the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), Thinking and Beyond. Gilbert’s design will be the visual representation of the QEP. Members of the QEP Steering Committee and Dr. Laurel Williamson celebrated the student artists at a luncheon on Central campus, Friday, April 20. At the luncheon, Gilbert explained that she wanted to emphasize how critical thinking combines both left and right brain functions, so she incorporated different shading on the sides of the brain in her design that also includes the San Jacinto star with the addition of a USB to show the intersection of technology and thinking at San Jacinto College.

    Bailey Cauthen and Rogelio Dominguez also earned prize money for submitting designs to the contest that asked students to think about what the QEP topic of critical thinking means to them. The contest received 26 designs from San Jacinto College students.

    The QEP is an integral part of the College’s reaffirmation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Faculty and staff from across the College collaborated during an extensive series of focus groups to determine the topic that would most effectively assist San Jacinto College students to achieve their goals. Students voted to name the QEP Thinking and Beyond.

We would like to thank Mr. Daniel Byars for the popcorn and movie.  We would also like to thank Professor Gollapudi for sharing a scientist’s perspective on movie characters and their genetic mutations with our students and exploring the possibility of genetic mutation being a fact or a fiction…  We had a nice turnout.

    Martin Crichlow’s journey in leading others to community college 

    When Martin Crichlow began his college journey at San Jacinto College, he knew he wanted to help others experience the value of community college.

    Crichlow attended San Jac and graduated with his Associate of Arts in History in 1993. He then transferred to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he earned a Bachelors of Arts in Middle Eastern History, graduating Cum Laude. Crichlow consulted with Dr. Brooke Zemel, former director of counseling at San Jac, who recommended he take his education to the next step and obtain a master’s degree for a career in higher education.

    “Initially, I desired to pursue a career in the military, foreign service or a diplomatic officer,” said Crichlow. “However, my part-time work experiences during college was the springboard into pursuing a career in higher education administration.”

    Crichlow earned his Masters of Science from Colorado State University studying student affairs in higher education. He was selected as one of the first peer tutor counselors at the South Campus and has since moved into his recent role of district recruiter. Crichlow’s service to the College includes serving on the STEM Council, the Community College Petrochemical Initiative Student Recruitment Committee, Maritime Advisory Committee and the Galena Park ISD Career & Technical Advisory Board.
