Panola College singers perform in Dallas


 

 
 
Members of the Panola College Chorale performed along with choirs from
Dallas-area community colleges in Daniel Pinkham’s “Christmas Cantata,” on
Sunday, Dec. 3, at Central Lutheran Church in Dallas.
 
Panola College was the only college outside the Dallas area that
participated, according to Sandra Bauer, Panola College Vocal Music
professor.
 
“We had 19 students who performed this extremely difficult music,” she
said. “It took a lot of extra rehearsal time to perfect it, and I was
pleased that my students were willing to put in the extra effort and extra
time to audition for a chance to participate.”
 
Panola College students joined with singers from Richland College,
Brookhaven College, and Tarrant County College-Northeast. Others performing
included the Brookhaven Handbell Ensemble, Brookhaven Choral Society, Texas
Woman’s University Chamber Singers, and The Vivace Madrigals.
 
Panola College singers making the trip included Ronke Ajoniloju, Nigeria;
Shelby Brown, Carthage; Meosha Brown, Carthage;  Ahmadreion Casel,
Jacksonville;  Loren Caserta, Beckville; Zakayla Cooper, Carthage; Afrikina
Dotson, Center; Brittany Fendall, Shreveport; Emma Harden, Tyler; Tyesha
High, Jacksonville; Madison Hudson, Garrison; Shannon James, Tenaha; Hunter
Moon, Beckville; Nichole Painter, Marshall; Kyana Reagan, Lufkin; Mia
Sartor, Carthage; Ahna Stacy, Carthage; Jame’Cia Taylor, Carthage;  and
Sydnee Taylor, Carthage.
 
As part of the program, the Panola College Chamber Singers performed “Veni,
Veni, Emmanuel,” an ancient chant arranged by John Englert. The Singers
performed this piece at Christmas in Carthage this year. The Dallas
performance program was entitled “Sing Noel, Lessons & Carols for Advent &
Christmas,” featuring the Festival Community College Choirs and Ensembles.
 
“This was the first year this event has ever happened. Melody Gamblin
Bullock, director at Brookhaven, approached me at the Texas Music Educators
Association last year with the idea of combining choirs to produce a major
work,” Bauer said.
 
While in Dallas, the Panola College group attended a performance of the
Dallas Symphony Orchestra, which featured music from the nationally
recognized organ that is part of the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.
 
“The majority of our students had never been to a symphony, much less one
as incredible as the Dallas Symphony. It was the Christmas Pops Show, so
the Dallas Symphony Chorus performed, and our students were able to hear
that choir, which was absolute perfection,” Bauer added.
 
Shannon James, a Panola College vocal music student, said, “Singing the
piece by Pinkham with several Dallas community colleges was already
amazing, but thanks to Mrs. Bauer, we got to experience the Dallas
Symphony. The trip was an incredible experience and I’m so grateful to be a
part of the Panola College Music Department.”
 
 
 
 
Members of the Panola College Chorale participated in a Christmas Cantata
with other community colleges in the Dallas area on December 3.

Panola men overwhelm Coastal Bend, 97-68


 

 
 
Carthage, Texas – The Panola College men’s basketball team defeated Coastal Bend College here Saturday afternoon, 97-68. The victory raises the Ponies record to 7-5 and 1-2 in Region 14 play. “We just had to get the monkey off our back. The last three games we all lost at the buzzer.” Head Coach Grant McMillan stated. “We simplified some things and our crew responded. It was a great win going into break.” he added.
 
After a 15 all start, Panola started to gradually pull away ending the half on a 20-8 run giving them the 45-33 halftime lead. Coastal Bend never got any closer as the Ponies gradually increased their lead the entire second half. At one point, Panola pushed they lead to 31 points, 91-60.
 
Five players scored in double-figures and were led by Juwan Williams 22 points. Shandon “Biggie” Goldman came off the bench and netted 19 points including five three-pointers. Marlon Taylor added 14 while Tylan Dean and Alex Holcome both chipped in with 11, respectively. As a team, Panola recorded a season high 50 rebounds.
 
Panola heads to their holiday break before taking on Central Christian JV on Wednesday, January 3rd. Tip-off is set for 7:00 PM on the campus of Panola College.

SFA Receives Awards


 

 

 

 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Stephen F. Austin State University has received rankings on the national and state levels for its online education and affordable programs.
 
Nationally, Best Colleges Online ranked SFA fourth for the most affordable online master's degree in educational leadership. Best Colleges Online "provides expert insights into the best-accredited online universities across the United States," according to bestcollegesonline.org.
 
"Our master's degree program in educational leadership continues to grow and develop, and it is an honor to receive recognition at the national level," said Dr. Barbara Qualls, assistant professor of secondary education and educational leadership and program coordinator at SFA.
 
Website editors considered "the most reputable graduate online master's in educational administration, educational leadership and closely related programs from accredited colleges and universities with a graduate tuition price under $21,000 per year."
 
SFA's nationally accredited program within the James I. Perkins College of Education offers a 30-hour master's degree in educational leadership and an 18-hour principal certification. The program is administered entirely online through Desire to Learn, the university's online course-delivery system. The program utilizes a scholar-practitioner approach incorporating theory and practice-based learning that focuses on research-based practices, curriculum and instructional leadership.
 
At the state level, Affordable Colleges Online ranked SFA as the 14th best online college. Affordable Colleges Online is a website that offers "in-depth resources that address topics, questions and concerns related to higher education with an eye on affordability and accreditation."
 
SFA offers more than 20 online degree programs both at the undergraduate and graduate levels that are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
 
Top Management Degrees, an online guide to the best management degree programs, ranked SFA's Master of Business Administration program among its most affordable programs in the nation.
 
"The Rusche College of Business works very hard to deliver the highest quality program to our students," said Dr. Mitch Crocker, director of the M.B.A. program at SFA. "We are pleased to be recognized as one of the more affordable programs."
 
The M.B.A. is offered through SFA's Rusche College of Business, and coursework can be customized to fit the student's educational background, interests and goals. The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business accredits the program.

Panola men fall to 18th ranked San Jac at buzzer, 69-67


 

 
 
Pasadena, Texas – The Panola College men’s basketball team lost to San
Jacino-Central here this evening, 69-67. The loss drops the Ponies record
to 6-5 and 0-2 in Region 14 play. “We had our chance to win on the road. In
San Jac’s program history, not a lot of teams can say that.” Head Coach
Grant McMillan stated. “Again, adversity is hitting us head on right now.
But I know we have a chance to do special things this year.” He added
 
Panola came out slow trailing by as much as 11 in the first half, 23-12. A
gradual climb to end the half saw a 41 all halftime score. A seesaw second
half saw both teams lead by as much as five points. Down one with 28
seconds to go, Jeremy Roscoe missed a layup to take the lead. Forced to
foul, San Jac only made one of two freethrows with 8.2 seconds remaining.
Marlon Taylor got a three point shot off as the buzzer sounded but it was
off the mark.
 
Taylor scored a game high 23 points in the loss. Juwan Williams and Alex
Holcombe both scored in double figures netting 10 apiece. Panola shot 43
percent from the three point line as a team and out rebounded San Jac 40-36.
 
Panola host Costal Bend this upcoming Saturday, December 9th. This is their
final game before the Holiday break. Tip-off is set for 4:00 PM on the
campus of Panola College.

Panola upended by Blinn on buzzer beater


 

 

Carthage, Texas – The Panola College men’s basketball team dropped their
conference opener to Blinn College hear this evening 73-71. The loss drops
their record to 6-4 and 0-1 in Region 14 play. “This team has hit more
adversity than I can ever remember a team having to face. We fought back
and Blinn hit a three by a player that hasn’t taken one all year. Sometimes
that’s how this game goes.” Head Coach Grant McMillan stated. “I am beyond
proud of our effort and if we can continue to grow we know we can be
successful.” He added.
 
 
The first half was full of runs by each team. Panola came out hot hitting
three of their first four attempts from three to take a 9-3 lead. Blinn
came back with a barrage of three’s of their own taking an eight point lead
26-18. Panola regained the lead on two TJ killings free throws but Blinn
responded with a 12-0 run to take a 29-39 halftime lead.
 
 
Panola chipped away the entire second half and came back to tie the ball
game 53 all with 8:35 remaining. The back and forth finish saw Panola  take
the largest lead of the half 62-58 on a Juwan Williams 4-point play. With
Blinn forced to foul, TJ Killings missed the front end of a 1-1 with 8.2
seconds left. Blinn drove do the floor and made a three pointer as time
expired to give them the two point victory.
 
 
Five players scored in double figures and were led by Juwan Williams 15
points. Marlon Taylor added 14, TJ Killings with 11 and Alex Holcombe and
Jeremy Roscoe netted 10 each. Roscoe and Killings both recorded nine
assists in the lost. As a team, Panola only committed six turnovers on the
game.
 
 
Panola continues Region 14 play this upcoming Saturday, December 2nd when
they head to San Jacinto College. Tip-off is set for 4:00 PM on the campus
of San Jacinto-Central.

Timpson Bear Update


 

TISD School Calendar Correction - The 2017-2018 Timpson ISD school calendar shows that February 12, 2018 is a school holiday and Presidents’ Day. February 12 is a school holiday but it is not Presidents’ Day. Presidents’ Day is Feb. 19, 2018 and it is a regular school day for staff and students to be in attendance.

Panola College, Sam Houston sign articulation agreement


 

 
Panola College signed an articulation agreement with Sam Houston State
University on Tuesday, Nov. 14, in the Frances B. Ross Ballroom of the
Charles C. Matthews Foundation Student Center on the campus of Panola
College.  Dr. Christopher Maynard, Associate Vice Provost for SHSU, and PC
President Dr. Gregory Powell signed the agreement that streamlines the
transfer process for students from PC to SHSU.
 
"Panola College anticipates a growing relationship with our friends at Sam
Houston,” Dr. Powell commented. “This articulation agreement provides our
students with a seamless transfer pathway as they continue their education
towards bachelors' degrees.”
 
“The heart of everything is student success, and we believe this
articulation agreement provides the best opportunity for students to
complete their degrees on time and at the most reasonable cost,” said Dr.
Maynard.
 
SHSU offers more than 80 bachelor’s degree programs, more than 50 master’s
degree options, and six doctoral programs. Among these offerings is a
bachelor of applied arts and sciences (BAAS) degree.
 
“The BAAS degree at Sam Houston State University merges perfectly with our
Associate of Applied Science degrees,” said Dr. Billy Adams, Panola College
Vice President of Instruction. “This will benefit students across many
disciplines, from the health sciences to business and computer information
technology.”
 
Students who have majored in a career and technology, vocational or
technical program at Panola College and want to seek a baccalaureate degree
at SHSU must have completed and received an Associate of Applied Science
degree in a technical area and at least 36 hours of coursework must be in
the technical area. The approved AAS degree programs include, but are not
limited to, accounting, agricultural mechanization, automotive technology,
biotechnology, child development and family studies, computer graphics arts
technology, computer information technology, cosmetology, diagnostic
medical imaging, early childhood development, emergency medical services
professions, engineering technology, general business administration,
geographical information systems, health information technology, human
services, HVAC & R technology, interactive media, interior design
technology, interpreter training technology, management, marketing,
nursing, occupational therapy assistant, paralegal studies, physical
therapist assistant, professional office technology, respiratory care,
veterinary technology and welding technology.
 
Sam Houston State University, celebrating 137 years in higher education,
currently serves more than 18,000 students in seven colleges. With its main
campus in Huntsville, SHSU offers easy access to the vibrant economy of the
greater Houston area. While embracing its legacy of exceptional teaching,
SHSU meets the needs of contemporary students through traditional and
online undergraduate and graduate degrees, and certificates.
 
“Panola College transfer students are high valued at Sam Houston State
University,” said Dr. David Burris, SHSU Articulation Coordinator. “We
encourage transfer students to complete the associate degree. If they come
to SHSU prior to graduation, we will do everything possible to help them
complete the associate degree via reverse transfer.” In reverse transfer,
the credit hours taken would count toward the associate degree, allowing
the students to have completion of both associate and bachelor’s degrees on
their transcripts.
 
The agreement with SHSU also includes an opportunity to participate in a
“Time Compressed Degree Plan.” Through this program, students who maximize
dual credit hours at Panola can complete the high school diploma, associate
degree, and baccalaureate degree in six years or less in most fields. This
can save families as much as 40 percent off a traditional university
degree. Generally, traditional students require four years to obtain a high
school diploma, and a minimum of four additional years for college and
university to complete a bachelor’s degree.
 
Online articulation maximizes the amount of course work that will apply to
the bachelor’s degree program. Articulation information is accessible by
students, parents, and counselors at
http://www.shsu.edu/admissions/transfer/joint-admissions/panola/ .
 
“We are so pleased to be able to work with Sam Houston
State University,” said Dr. Powell. “The university’s proximity to the
greater Houston area offers students the opportunity to apply for
internships and co-op educational options with many corporate and
industrial facilities in the region.”

Panola to graduate 11 nurses in Center


 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Eleven Licensed Vocational Nursing students from the Shelby College Center
will receive their degrees during Panola College Commencement on December
14.
 
“Our program is really growing,” said Sharon Peace, RN, BSN. “We expect the
number of graduates to triple by this time next year.”
 
Peace said the demand for nurses is growing, and the word of mouth positive
reviews from current and former students has had much to do with the
increase in enrollment.
 
“Both current and former students have been so pleased with their
experience here that they have passed the word along about what a great
program we have,” she said.
 
The Shelby College Center nursing program held a career showcase during the
summer to introduce people to the career opportunities available at the
Panola College SCC campus.
 
“We had more than 300 people to visit our campus on that day for the meet
and greet, barbecue picnic and entertainment. We plan to keep this momentum
going,” she said.
 
During the September and October application period, the Shelby College
Center LVN program received 45 applications, and 36 students have already
registered to begin classes in January.
 
“Nursing is a helping profession, and one that continues to be in great
demand now and in the future. The faculty and staff at the Shelby College
Center are proud of the work we are doing, and we invite anyone interested
in pursuing a career in Licensed Vocational Nursing to stop by for a
visit,” Peace said.
 
 
 
Graduating in December from Panola College’s Shelby College Center Licensed
Vocational Nursing program are, from left, Holly Baker, Gary; Haleigh
Solice, Timpson; Crystal White, Center; Crystal Mosby, San Augustine;
Lakethia Christopher, Nacogdoches; Devon Washington, Belcher, La.; Jacy
Youngblood Willis, Carthage; Candace Johnson, Joaquin; Kaitlyn Whiddon,

Just saying “thank you” isn’t enough for your sacrifice and dedication. So I’m sending prayers, hugs and well wishes to you for the holidays. Your bravery and service is more than we can ask for. Words can’t explain how important your service is to our country. We are praying that God watches over you and your family. Our nation is honored to have you serving and we want you to know that we love you!
 
3rd place-Madenline Binning
 
Dear Service Members,
I would like to take the time to say thank you for your courage and dedication to our country. I am happy to say that in this card you will find my love and gratitude for the holiday season. I hope you all get to find your way home to be with friends and family. Know that we love you and there is not a day that goes by that you are not in our hearts. I am so grateful for the sacrifice that you give for me. May God bless you, keep you safe, and bring you lots of joy. Most importantly, let him bring you home for the laughter this holiday season will bring.

Panola Rodeo Update


 

The Panola College Rodeo Team was on the road to the final Southern Region Rodeo of the fall semester November 10th-11th, hosted by SAMSU, in Conroe, TX. The team had some great results before heading to a well-deserved break.
 
Bareback Rider’s, Tyler Johnson and Travis Chapman, started the weekend right with a 1st and 3rd place finish. Tyler won the long round with a 78 point ride, while Travis scored 67 points good enough for 7th place finish. The top 10 are taken back to a short go where the average on two head becomes the champions. The short go proved to be very exciting. Travis scored the highest score of the weekend with an 80 point ride, while Tyler scored 77 points for 2nd place finish in the short round. The two scores where added together and the final tally was: Tyler Johnson 1st place finish, Travis Chapman 3rd place finish. The win’s these two were able to put together this semester has both cowboys in the top three positions in the Southern Region, Travis is number 2 with 518.50 points, while Tyler is 3rd with 422.33 points. The top three at the end of the season move on to the CNFR in June. 
 
Michael Womack, a freshman from Bastrop, La., did his part for the team in the Saddle bronco riding. Michael scored a 63 point ride in the long go for a 3rd place finish. Only four cowboys had qualified rides in the long, making the short round tough with a great field of bucking stock to draw from. Michael failed to win anything in the short round, but held his position in the average of 3rd place. Womack moves to number 8 in the region, while fellow team mate Logan Cook holds on tight to the number 2 position.
 
C.K. Wright, sophomore from Lufkin, did a great job for the Fillies’ side of the team in the Barrel Racing. Wright had a great run in the long go with a time of 17.57 for the 4th place finish. C.K. then came back to the short round with a time of 17.58 for the 6th place finish. The average times she was able to combine landed the young cowgirl in 5th in the average for her and her team. C.K. and team mate Campbell Grover both are in the top 20 in the region with lots of rodeo time left before the season ends.
 
Team Ropers Logan Cook, and Colton Johnson, did an amazing job roping their first steer in 6.3 seconds and a 4th place finish in the long go. The short go proved to be very difficult for every team as only two teams were able to make smooth runs without penalties. The cowboys had a 5 second penalty in the short go, but still had a fast time of 11.40 seconds. The times on two head were added together and the team came out with a 3rd place finish. (In the team roping a team is penalized 5 seconds if only on back leg is roped)
 
The Panola College Rodeo men’s team is still on top of the Southern Region standings with a total of 2753.83 points, while close 2nd is Hill College has 2633.33 points. The top two teams in each region will move on to the CNFR. The spring season will kick back off in Athens, February 9-10. Coach Jeffrey Collins said “It has been a great Fall and I am very excited for this team, we have big goals and plans, right now our plan is to enjoy the break and keep pressing on towards a regional championship as well as a national title.”

TISD Site Evacuation – TISD will have a mock site evacuation at 10:00 a.m. on November 28.  Students and staff will board buses, drive around the block and return to campus.  The purpose of a site evacuation drill is to prepare staff and students should there be a real emergency that would require evacuating the campus.  In a real site evacuation students and staff will be bused to First Baptist Church in Timpson.  Parents will be notified.  Parents would then be able to pick up their children from the church.  Timpson ISD strives to ensure the safety of all its students.

Timpson ISD Off to Great Start! – “It’s a good time to be a Bear” is a phrase that is heard often on campus, in the community and in the press about all the outstanding accomplishments going on at Timpson ISD.  TISD Superintendent Dr. Mid Johnson said that the district offers many opportunities for students to excel in both academic and extra-curricular activities. Dr. Johnson said he thinks it is the dedication of the hardworking staff, the support of the Timpson ISD Board of Trustees, involved parents and students who have a desire to succeed that have made the beginning of the 2017-2018 especially successful.  Dr. Johnson said Timpson ISD is a school district that wants to give students as many opportunities as possible and the skills to be successful in their pursuit of excellence.
 
Construction – Architect David Golden of McKinley-Golden Architects reports that Timpson ISD has completed the first phase of their Bond improvements.  Band students started the year with an expanded rehearsal hall.  It almost doubles the size of the old rehearsal hall.  Acoustical and lighting improvements were also made along with the addition of an ensemble room, student restrooms, music library and instrument storage rooms.  Campus draining, sidewalks and security fencing were improved.  A new digital campus monument sign with marquee greets students and guests displaying up to date district news.  The elementary school is remodeled with new flooring, ceilings, new carpet in some areas, remodeled library removing the stage which allowed for more useable space.  Baseball batting cages were also completed.  Construction of the event center/collegiate center is currently underway.  Golden said his firm is working alongside Superintendent Mid Johnson to assure Phase II projects flow smoothly.  There will be construction updates through the winter and spring to keep students, parents and community informed on the building projects.
 
Dual Credit – 93 students in grades 9-12 are taking 145 classes for college and high school credit.  Students have the opportunity to earn an Associates degree.  The district pays for the tuition and books.  This program gives students the opportunity to start college following high school graduation as juniors and save half the cost of attending college.  Monitors help students with time management, test taking skills as well as other essential other skills to be successful in college.
 
STEM – The Texas Education Agency designated Timpson ISD as a STEM Academy.   This was supposed to be just a planning year but teachers have enthusiastically embraced the program and have students working on STEM projects.  A STEM fair was held recently for students to display their projects and explain to parents and community what they are learning about science, technology, engineering and math.  One of the goals of the program is to get female students interested in these areas where currently females are underrepresented.  Careers in Science, technology engineering and math are often associated with higher paying jobs.  The goal is to create interest and develop skills beginning in pre-k and kindergarten on STEM areas.
 
LADY BEAR VARSITY VOLLEYBALL – This year the Lady Bear Varsity Volleyball team (TLB) for the first time in the history of the volleyball program has won 3 games in the state playoffs and went four deep in the play-offs.  They are Bi-District champs, Area champs, and Regional Quarterfinals champs.
