Head Coach Brenita Jackson was named the National Junior College Athletic Association Region XIV Coach of the Year. The team was ranked nationally for much of the season appearing as high as ninth in the NJCAA Division I Women’s Basketball poll in early January. It was the first time in the program’s history to be ranked in the top 10 nationally.

    The team qualified for the regional tournament for the first time since 2011, advancing to the semifinal round before being eliminated by the defending national champions Trinity Valley Junior College.

    Three players earned honors for their accomplishments during the 2014-2015 season. The team’s leading scorer, sophomore guard Kendra Howard (Dallas / Cedar Hill High School), who averaged 15.5 points per game, was named to the All-Region Team. Freshman guard Miranda LeJune (Pearland / Pearland High School), who led the nation in assists with 8.1 per game, was named to the All-Conference Team and earned the Region XIV Co-Freshman of the Year honor. Freshman forward Kaelynn Wilson (San Antonio / Wagner High School) earned All-Conference Honorable Mention recognition.

    At the banquet, players, coaches, and support staff members were recognized for their dedication and achievements.

    North Campus hosting ‘Created Equal’ film screenings 

    San Jacinto College philosophy professor Edwin Aiman will serve as masters of ceremony and a discussion leader during the “Created Equal” film screenings.

    San Jacinto College philosophy professor Edwin Aiman will serve as masters of ceremony and a discussion leader during the “Created Equal” film screenings.

    As America marks the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the North Campus will host documentary films that chronicle significant civil rights milestones in the nation.

    Each film will be followed by faculty-led discussions that will enable audience participation. The film screenings and discussions are free and open to the public.

    The film series, “Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle,” will be shown at the Dr. Charles Grant Fine Arts Center auditorium.

    “Freedom Riders” will be shown on Tuesday, March 18 at 6:30 p.m. It documents the turbulent “rides” of a group of volunteers who traveled through the South in 1961 in a quest for equality.

    “Slavery by Another Name” will be shown on Tuesday, April 8 at 6:30 p.m. The film documents injustices many African American males experienced in the South during the first half of the 20th century.

    “These films chronicle the long and sometimes violent effort to achieve the rights enumerated in the Declaration of Independence for all Americans – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” commented San Jacinto College philosophy professor Edwin Aiman, who will serve as master of ceremonies during the film screenings. “The true stories showcase efforts of everyday Americans to provide a better and more promising future for all citizens. We hope these presentations will engender ongoing discussions about civil rights.”
