    Jahmal Clemons flies high with the Blue Angels 

    San Jacinto College social media coordinator Jahmal Clemons was recently given the opportunity of a lifetime. He was chosen by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels as a 2018 Key Influencer and extended the opportunity to fly with the elite flight exhibition team Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    “I’m honored to be chosen for this opportunity,” Clemons said. “I’m also excited about the feeling of going fast in the air and feeling no boundaries as you’re zooming through.”

    Clemons was nominated by Teri Crawford, vice chancellor, of marketing, public relations and government affairs at the San Jacinto College because of his contributions to the community.

    “Jahmal works hard not only at the College, but also in the community,” Crawford said. “His commitment to student success as well as his willingness to donate his time and talents to those around him, made his nomination an easy choice.”

    As an employee of San Jacinto College, Clemons donates his time by serving as a mentor in the Men of Honor/Women of Integrity program, a retention effort tasked with increasing transfer rates among Hispanic students and students of color and was recognized as an Outstanding Mentor by the program for the past two years.

    Clemons also works with the Woods Project, an organization that provides area high school students weekend camping trips to local parks and serves as an Adult Learning Center volunteer in Pearland, Texas, where he tutors more than 30 students in mathematics and grammar who are in the process of obtaining their high school diploma.

    As a Blue Angels’ Key Influencer, Clemons also received a signed commemorative print from the Blue Angels team who will be performing at the Wings Over Houston airshow Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21.

    Hess Houston Corporate Run 5K – Team San Jac 

    Balance U is happy to announce that we will be participating in the second annual ‘Hess Houston Corporate Run 5K’
    which will be held this October 22-25th at Memorial Park! We’ll be joining 130+ companies across the region in this
    corporate health and wellness initiative.

    The corporate rate cost is $40 per person.  To register just go to our team page.

    During registration, choose any day Mon-Thurs to participate after work. On the event day you choose, just show up at the
    start line anytime between 4-7pm. Do not worry about being late!

    After the event, enjoy food and refreshments in the post-race tent including complimentary Saint Arnold beer, food from
    the Creek family of restaurants and a treat from Nothing Bundt Cakes. All participants also receive a tech shirt and goody
    bag full of special offers from local partners if you sign up by Monday 10/8 at midnight.

    Please keep in mind that ALL EMPLOYEES are welcome to participate. You do not need to be a runner as you can walk the
    course as well (about 40% of all participants walked last year). Our goal is to have as many of you participate as possible.

    This should be a lot of fun and a great way to enjoy some time outside with your co-workers…and be able to interact with
