    San Jacinto College students lend helping hand for the season 

    A group of San Jacinto College (SJC) students from South Campus psychology professor Dr. Dawn Eaton’s child growth and development class recently volunteered their time at the Ronald McDonald House of Galveston for a community service project. The eight SJC students collected a total of $200 from fellow South Campus psychology professor Dr. Marylou Robin’s classes, helped shop for toys, wrap gifts, and cook food. The Ronald McDonald House of Galveston is a “home away from home” for the families of children who are seeking medical treatment at the University of Texas Medical Branch, Shriners Hospital for Children, and Transitional Learning Center. The House serves as an alternative to an isolated hotel room where the families and children enjoy cheerful surroundings and the support of other families, volunteers, and staff. Pictured left to right: (bottom row) Barbara Spencer, Ronald McDonald volunteer; Gloria Gonzales, Ronald McDonald volunteer; Andrea Herrera, SJC student; and Amanda Trader, SJC student. Second row: SJC students Nailah Spencer, Sharon Cole, and Cindy Hernadez. Third row: SJC students Nathaniel Barley, Cody Thomas, and Jason Box. Photo submitted.

    Students put 'giving' in Thanksgiving 

    The North Campus Pharmacy Technician Club officers organized a Thanksgiving Walk in which they adopted two families for Thanksgiving.

    Thanks to the generosity of donors, the students were able to feed four additional families from the overflow of food items.

    “What a great blessing and feeling to be able to give back to our communities,” commented Shalonica Cluse, the faculty advisor of the club.

    Shown in the photo are students Ashley Radke, Brittany Watkins, and Desare Arrington.

    North campus helps in a worthy cause

    A large group of North campus employees and students provided valuable volunteer help to area residents during the recent community health fair that was held at the Fellowship of the Nations church in North Shore. The annual health fair provides residents with a range of health services, with a primary goal of providing immunization shots for children before the beginning of another school year. (More …)

      Serving as the Volunteer Coordinator for the event was a true blessing. Of the 297 volunteers present, over 100 of the volunteers were from SJCN—this speaks for itself as to how dedicated our campus family is to our community.

    For a worthy cause 

    Some of the San Jac group that participated in the Relay for Life.

    Hats off to North campus employees Tina Sanchez and Tom Cortez, who coordinated San Jacinto College’s group that participated in the recent Relay For Life, an annual event that raises funds for the American Cancer Society.

    The San Jacinto College team, that included 114 employees and students (and relatives of students and employees), raised $2,200 to go to cancer research.

    The walk was staged at the North Shore Senior High Ninth Grade Center athletic track in the North Channel area. Walkers gathered at dusk and walked through the night until dawn of the next day.

    Congratulations to all of the employees who donated your time and effort for such a worthy cause.

    Kudos to North campus cosmetology instructors Simone Paisley, Gloria Young, and Tina Sanchez who coordinated a recent volunteer effort at Texas Children’s Hospital, during which cosmetology students donated beauty services to help patients dealing with serious medical issues to enjoy a very special occasion.

    A group of North campus cosmetology students spent several hours on a recent Sunday to help TCH renal dialysis patients get ready for an elegant prom, an event especially created for patients who seldom have a chance to enjoy special occasions. (More …)

    North campus employee Becky Martinez was recently awarded the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center Path for Success award. Largely due to her efforts, the North campus hosted numerous blood drives during 2009.

    Becky has been hosting North campus blood drives because of her enthusiasm, and her “Commitment for Life.” Becky has personally donated 68 units for the Blood Center, and is building a pyramid of her gallon mugs.

    Shown in the related photo with Becky is Shannon Cook, an account representative for the Blood Center, and a former San Jac student. Shannon says she would be happy to speak to any San Jacinto College student organization or employee association on behalf of the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center.

    A large group of students, faculty, and staff from the North campus recently visited Texas Children’s Hospital to bring some cheer and good will to young patients at the hospital.

    The photo at left shows North campus employees Tina Sanchez, Amy Ammerman, and Tom Cortez, who participated in the volunteer effort.

    San Jac people distributed cute teddy bears to children in their rooms and provided cosmetology services to the young patients, as well as to their visiting friends and relatives. Students dressed as life-sized cartoon characters roamed the hospital walls to visit with the youngsters. Some entertained children with karaoke singing. Others spent quality time with the little patients in a recreation room, playing pool, Guitar Hero, and other video games. A group of faculty members and students hosted a live broadcast on the hospital’s closed-circuit Lolipop radio station that prompted people to dance down the hallways.

    Be sure to watch the related slideshow (below) to see more photos from the fun event.
