    A Great Day for San Jacinto 

    Two significant anniversaries occur in 2011: the 175th anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto, and the 50th anniversary of San Jacinto College. Thanks largely to San Jacinto College history professor Dr. Eddie Weller, the College had a display booth at the recent San Jacinto Day Festival and Battle Reenactment. SJC culinary arts pastry chef students, under the direction of Steve Rudd, baked large cakes bearing anniversary wishes to Texas and to San Jacinto College, and SJC employees gave away slices of cake to people attending the big festival held at the San Jacinto Battlegrounds. SJC employees who helped out in the event include Amanda Booren, Rob Vanya, Jessica Elizondo, Kaye Moon Winters, Hollie Fulsom, Dr. Kerry Mix, Joshua Wilson, Dana Eifert, and LaVena Wilder.

    Central campus administrators and staff members gathered recently for a “First Impressions” seminar. Blending lively anecdotes, compelling statistics, multimedia presentations, with a large dash of humor, keynote speakers Arleen Arnsparger and Steven Little drove home just how important it is for students to have a favorable first impression of San Jacinto College during their initial counseling, admissions and orientation sessions. Little is a highly-acclaimed business growth consultant, and Arnsparger is a key executive with the Center for Community College Student Engagement.

    Key Central campus administrators attending the entertaining and informative meeting included Dr. Neil Matkin, president; Dr. Barbara Hanson, vice president of instruction, Dr. Timothy Elliot, dean of weekend and evening college; Dr. Steven Horton, dean of technical education; Van Wigginton, academic dean; Dr. James Braswell, administrative dean; and Karen Blankenship, library director.
