    Photography Challenge: Back to School 

    Back-to-school photo sample.

    Back-to-school photo sample.

    The San Jacinto College Employee Photography Club is kicking off the year with a photography challenge: Back to School.  Take a photo of a back-to-school scene. The photo should be representative of school in some manner.  Your back-to-school scene may be a person, or a group, or even just school-related items.  It doesn’t have to be at San Jac although we love our SJC pics!  For an additional challenge, use the depth of field in your photo to focus on one area while gently blurring elements in front of and/or behind the focal point.

    To participate, simply bring your photo on a USB drive with you to the first photography club meeting on September 18 @ 11:30am in the Central Campus ILC, room 110.  You may also contact Chris Duke (chris.duke@sjcd.edu) to request access to the club website and upload your photo to the club site or share it via Flickr.

    The San Jacinto College Employee Photography club works to create a collaborative learning community of photographers among college employees and their families. All San Jac employees, retirees, spouses, and dependents are invited to participate in Club meetings and activities.  Individual club employee members are responsible, in collaboration with their leader, for maintaining their personal work schedules in relation to club activities and any wellness release time. Minor dependents must be accompanied by the college employee at all club activities.

    TSTA at the NEA conference in Orlando 

    Three members of the Central Campus Texas State Teachers Association student program (TSTA – SP) participated at the National Education Association conference that was held from June 27 to July 1 in Orlando, Florida. The three students, Tessa Themis, Jennifer Scalise and Brittany Earley were accompanied by one of the advisors (Dr. Judy Maima).  The conference which was attended by over 800 participants included pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, college advisors and retirees from all over the United States. In addition to learning about political action, digital tools and how to conduct outreach in our communities, the workshops also raised the awareness of attendees to cultural diversity and cultural biases. The highlight of the experience was participation in the Leaders Empowering Grassroots Advocacy for Communities and Youth (LEGACY) Project, which was designed specifically for students and their families in the area (Osceola County). Activities ranged from writing letters to veterans, painting murals and planting of a community garden. At the end of the day, participants were able to visit the nearby Disney world.

    Pictured at the NEA conference are from left to right; Dr. Judy Maima, Clinton Gill (TSTA student program liason), Jennifer Scalise (President), Tessa Themis, (Vice President), Brittany Earley (Historian).
