    Supporting a worthy cause 

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and employees of the North campus Counseling Center went all out to show their support.

    The counseling center team set up tables in the student center and treated visitors to free punch and pastries.

    Special gifts were presented to survivors, such as Betty Anderson, who works in the North campus police department, and Theresa Powell, who works in the North campus health science department.

    The group photo shows counseling center employees who helped out in the worthy cause — (from left) back row: Shannon Hinton (Advisor/Recruiter), Sharon Himes (Counselor), Elke Ornelas ( Administrative Assistant II), Senta Eastern (Disability Counselor), Adriana Jones (Counselor), Jeremy Jones (Shared Counselor), and Chantee Walker (Advisor/Recruiter); front row: Michelle Alvarado (International Counselor), Deborah Longtine (Office Manager), Dr. Deborah Myles (Director of Educational and Counseling) and Verenice Mares (Administrative Assistant) .

    North campus helps in a worthy cause 

    From left, North campus employees Myrna Gonzalez, Robbie Murphy, and Rhonda Bell were among the many employees and students who volunteered at the health fair.

    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 group brings cheer to young patients

    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.
