    Remembering 9/11 

    All of the campus’ Remembering 9/11 events were a great success thanks to the College’s Veteran Services and Student Engagement & Activities departments. The Pasadena American Legion Post 521 and the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 521 provided six $100 scholarships to two student veterans at the Central, North and South Campuses.

    On Monday, September 11, 2017, AL Post 521 Commander Hubert Winters, ALA Unit 521 President Diana King, and ALA District 22 President Carol Chance Fleury made presentations on each campus at their respective Remembering 9/11 events.

    The two Central Campus winners of the AL and ALA $100 scholarships are Arturo Guerra and Victor DeLeon.  Arturo Guerra is a Communications major and a US Navy veteran. Victor DeLeon, an Army veteran, is a culinary arts major.

    Houston Green, one of the recipients of the $100 scholarship, is a mechanical engineer major and an Air Force veteran. The other recipient at South Campus is Katrina Parker-Hall; she is a nursing major and a Navy veteran.

    The two winners on North Campus of $100 scholarships are Adam Solis and Dominique Walker. Adam Solis is an Army veteran and is planning a career as a paramedic.  Dominique Walker is a Navy veteran and is preparing to be a social worker.

    Please enjoy this video of students sharing their 9/11 stories created by Eugene Bernard, San Jacinto College Veteran Services District Manager.

    Instructor coordinates gingerbread house village project 

    Students were graded for the gingerbread houses they built.

    Students were graded for the gingerbread houses they built.

    Building gingerbread houses, a popular holiday activity, became a means for San Jacinto College pastry arts students to improve culinary skills in a recent class project.

    “During this time of year, pastry chefs all over town create gingerbread houses and villages,” commented San Jacinto College pastry chef instructor Andrea Huerta, who conceived the concept, and coordinated the gingerbread house village class project. “Gingerbread house displays are commonly found in country clubs and hotels and it’s always the pastry chef that creates them. Putting together an entire village is quite an undertaking, and I wanted my students to build a village as a way of getting hands-on work experience.”

    The pastry arts students created their individual houses, which collectively were grouped as a village, entirely from scratch. “They were not permitted to use store-bought kits because kits are more expensive than making everything from scratch,” said Huerta. “That’s what would be expected in the industry, as restaurants are always watching their bottom line.”

    Each student was individually responsible for the entire house-making process, which included making the dough, portioning, rolling, baking, creating a design template, assembly and decoration. The class as a whole collaborated to create the village, which was on public display for a week.
