Fillies Begin Season at Classics


 

 

Carthage, TX- The Panola Fillies began the 2018-2019 season hosting the Panola Classic at AJ gym. Panola came out with a victory over ETBU-JV. Fillies saw offensive promise as 12 different Fillies scored in the contest. Freshman Jolie Williams led the charge with 19 point while sophomore Maryia Adashychk led the team in rebounding.

 

The Fillies would then fall to Grayson College the following evening 91-85. Panola jumped out to a 21 to 14 lead early. However the lead dwindled as she Fillies went on a scoring drought. After back and forth scoring the Fillies would enter the final period behind. After a grueling fight back the Fillies would ultimately fall to Grayson College. Williams would again lead the Fillies with 21 points. Freshman Kellymar Ramirez led the Fillies in rebounding.

 

The Fillies traveled to Denison Texas this past weekend to participate in the Grayson College Classic. The Fillies fell to The Independence College 66-60 and Labette College 67-58. The Fillies struggled shooting the ball and keeping key players on the floor due to foul trouble.  The Fillies would fall short after two half court heaves and end of game free throw shooting.

 

After a tough loss the Fillies returned to actions against Labette College. Once again Panola would jump out to a quick lead. The Fillies saw foul trouble and poor shooing again. Freshman Kenzie Chadwick would be a spark off the bench for the Fillies. Chadwick would lead the Fillies in rebounding and spark a third quarter run. Unfortunately the team would go on a drought and only score 10 points in the final period. Labette would capitalize and charge on for the win.

The Fillies return to action Tuesday November 13, 2018 in AJ Gym at 7pm .

A heart for service: SFA Lumberjack leads on and off the field


 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas -— Brett Payne hasn't always had a beard, but now that he's the newest face of the Lumberjack mascot, it's just another part of the job. 

 

“I was really skeptical about coming into it, but the spirit team took me in with open arms and with no beard at all,” said Payne, senior marketing major of Houston. 

 

Enlisting in the Marines after high school, his road to SFA was not a traditional one. Payne served five years stationed in San Diego as a crew chief on an MV-22 Osprey helicopter plane, loading passengers and cargo and acting as a door gunner during deployments. He deployed twice, traveling around the world but spending most of the deployment in Kuwait and Iraq. It was this time in the military that helped prepare him to take on the challenge of balancing school and the spirit program, Payne said.

 

“It gave me the discipline I need to stay focused in my classes, as well as the confidence and drive I need to be able to put myself out there and meet people, which is how I became the mascot in the first place,” he said.

 

Originally setting his sights on another Texas institution, Payne signed up for fall classes at SFA to stay busy while remaining close to family, but when he set foot on campus, something happened he didn’t expect. He felt at home.

 

“I didn’t really know anything about SFA,” he said. “The first day of class was the first day I stepped on campus. I was just walking around and fell in love with it.”

 

Part of what helped smooth his transition was Veteran’s Resource Center Coordinator John Fontenot’s commitment to making sure Payne succeeded.

 

Because participation outside of the classroom can help veterans significantly enrich their college experience, Fontenot said, he was adamant Payne find ways to be active on campus.

 

“Unfortunately, people have an image of veterans as disgruntled or antisocial, but John was big on me not being that way and branching out,” Payne said.

 

Following his advice, Payne started exploring different avenues for involvement, joining fraternity Sigma Chi.

 

On the suggestion of a friend, Payne emailed T.J. Maple, spirit program coordinator, and set up a meeting to discuss the mascot opening.

 

“The next thing I know, I’m signing paperwork and growing my beard out,” he said.

He donned the purple plaid shirt, suspenders and boots of the Lumberjack uniform for the first time at the beginning of the year and hasn’t looked back.

 

“There are so many ways he’s an asset to our program,” Maple said. “Having the military background he has, he gets the idea of working hard toward a goal.”

 

As Lumberjack, Payne attends every home game for basketball and football, as well as women’s basketball and volleyball when the university lacks a Ladyjack mascot. He also makes appearances when requested.

 

New to competitive cheer, Payne didn’t know what to expect when he signed on to the program.

“I was the first to say cheerleading is not a sport until I joined the team, but these individuals on the cheer team at SFA are some of the most talented athletes I’ve ever been around and just all-around good people,” he said.

 

Without a character suit to hide behind, the success of a live mascot’s performance relies solely on personality, Maple said. To do it well, Payne has to approach the experience with an open mind and steeled nerves. 

 

“You can’t be shy,” Payne said. “People are usually genuinely kind of scared in front of other people. They don’t want to give anyone a reason to laugh at them, but in this, if you don’t go a 100 percent, people aren’t going to respond to what you want them to do.”

While being a live mascot means a little more work for Payne, part of the appeal is spending a couple of hours being someone else.

 

“It’s pretty exhilarating because for however long the game is you’re somebody completely else,” he said. “You take on a different persona and different personality. You’re the Lumberjack.”

When Payne signed on, Maple hadn’t intended to use him at the national competition because of his lack of experience, but his work ethic quickly changed his mind.

 

“Even though he wasn’t competing on the mat with the cheerleaders doing the skills, he was still there at every single practice to motivate, cheer on and make sure he was being a part of that team,” Maple said.

 

Payne traveled to Daytona for the 2018 NCA and NDA Collegiate Cheer and Dance Championship and was immersed in a world of intense competition. The spirit program has won numerous awards at nationals and placed in several categories in Division I at this year’s competition.

Since most of his time as Lumberjack is spent supporting SFA at sporting events, nationals gave him a chance to represent the university in a whole new way, he said.

“We all love the sport side and school spirit, but representing your school actually as athletes — not as cheerleaders on the side — makes it a completely different experience,” he said. “You are the face of SFA in that environment.”

 

Being the Lumberjack is a team effort, Payne said, and he has a team of his own cheering him on as he takes on the challenge, from Fontenot in the VRC to Maple and the spirit office.

“All of those people are the reason I’m here right now,” he said.

When his career as the mascot comes to an end, Payne isn’t positive what he’ll do next, but whatever it is, he knows it will be something he is just as passionate about.

“I made a promise to myself when I got out of the military that whatever I do, I just want to do something I love,” he said.

 

As for the beard, Payne has no plans to shave anytime soon.

“Until they tell me to stop,” he said, “I’m just going to keep it going.”

Cutline: Brett Payne, senior marketing major of Houston and former Marine, serves as Stephen F. Austin State University’s newest Lumberjack mascot.

SFA nursing students conduct disaster simulation drill


 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas -— Senior nursing students from Stephen F. Austin State University’s DeWitt School of Nursing treated “patients” and assessed injuries during a recent disaster simulation drill designed to help the students develop disaster preparedness.

 

The drills are conducted by fourth semester nursing students each fall and spring semester to teach them how to better react in an uncontrolled environment.

 

“While we hope we never have to put these skills to use, it’s important to have adequate training so we will have the proper nursing skills that become instinct when faced with highly stressful situations,” said Julianna Pisano, an SFA simulation team leader from Longview.

Pisano and Brice Holloway of San Augustine were selected as team leaders by their classmates and spent the semester planning the simulation, working with nursing faculty and staff to gather supplies and set up. They also coordinated with the Nacogdoches Fire Department to ensure the simulation was as realistic as possible.

 

Students spent the week of the simulation learning the specific skills involved, such as transporting patients on backboards and prioritizing patients for treatment.

The scenario — a car driving through a crowd at a festival — was enacted twice, ensuring each student was given ample time to act as both a patient and a nurse. Nurses triaged patients according to the severity of their injuries before walking or carrying them on backboards to treatment areas while patients trapped in the car were extracted by firefighters and assisted by nurses.

 

“It can be total chaos, but as I remind the students, a disaster is chaos,” said Dr. Della Connor, associate professor in the DeWitt School of Nursing. “If we knew what was going to happen and how to handle it, it would be a controlled simulation with the mannequins in our building.”

The school started conducting the drills as a response to present-day threats, Connor said, and is just one more way it prepares students to be successful nurses.  

 

“I think it’s safe to say that everyone in our class entered the field of nursing to help people, and expanding our knowledge and skills enable us to be more effective nurses,” Pisano said.

Cutline: Senior nursing students enrolled in Stephen F. Austin State University’s DeWitt School of Nursing strap a patient to a backboard during a disaster simulation drill. The drills are organized by fourth semester nursing students and are conducted every fall and spring semester to encourage disaster preparedness.

Two areas on SFA campus named in honor of alumni


 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Two areas on the Stephen F. Austin State University campus were named in honor of alumni during the recent Board of Regents meeting.

 

The university’s new ROTC obstacle course was named in honor of alumnus 1st Lt. Kile G. West, who graduated from SFA in 2005. West attended the field artillery officer basic course and was assigned to the 1st Calvary Division at Fort Hood, Texas.

 

West and four of his men were killed in action on May 28, 2007, in Abu Sayda, Iraq, while en route to rescue the crew of a downed U.S. aircraft. West was the first officer commissioned at SFA to be killed in action. He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star with Valor and the Purple Heart.

 

“Lt. West absolutely embodied the Lumberjack Battalion motto ‘Be the Best,’” said Maj. James Attaway, professor and chair of SFA’s Department of Military Science. “I am excited the Board of Regents has approved the naming and dedication of this obstacle course. Not only will this honor Kile’s sacrifice to our nation, but it also will pay respect to Kile’s gold-star family.”

 

The Lt. Kile G. West Memorial Obstacle Course is located next to the SFA Student Recreation Center. The course opened in May 2018 and features obstacles designed to challenge ROTC members and others in conquering physical and mental obstacles. Many of the challenges help prepare ROTC members for specialized schools, such as air assault school. The course is open with trained supervision to SFA and Nacogdoches community members.

 

Military science Instructor Sgt. 1st Class Jose Rendon was instrumental in creating the obstacle course and said, “It builds confidence and helps you conquer the fear of failure.”

 

In the Rusche College of Business, a collaborative classroom on the first floor of the McGee Business Building was named in honor of alumna Lou Ann Richardson, who is the Wells Fargo executive vice president and head of relationship programs for wholesale relationship strategies and insights in Dallas.

 

Richardson graduated SFA in 1983 with a Bachelor of Business Administration. She was a member of the Ladyjack tennis team in 1979; played intramural sports from 1979-83; was a member and officer of Gamma Sigma Sigma; was a resident assistant for Gibbs Hall and Steen Hall from 1981-83; and was the Ladyjack mascot during the 1982-83 basketball season.

 

She remains an active member of the SFA community by participating in the Rusche College of Business Executive Advisory Board. Currently, she is serving as chair of the board. In 2014, the SFA Alumni Association named her a distinguished alumnus.

 

“Lou Ann has been an incredible asset to the Rusche College of Business and continues to provide us with valuable insights and support,” said Dr. Tim Bisping, dean of SFA’s Rusche College of Business. “We are so pleased to have a classroom in our building bearing Lou Ann’s name.”

 

Her industry experience includes more than 34 years in financial services. Richardson serves her community on the board of Communities in Schools of the Dallas region; received the 2013 GFI Global Citizen Award; was a recipient of the International Group Management and Excellence and Diversity Champion Awards; chaired the IG Diversity Council from 2007-09; and was a past chair of the GFI Community Support Campaign.

Tenaha Veteran's Day Program


 

 

Veterans Day is an annual holiday in America honoring the millions of military veterans in the United States.  There are approximately 22 million veterans living in the United States today. 

 

At Tenaha ISD we believe Veterans Day is important because of the precious freedoms that we take for granted every day. Saying "Thank You" to a person in the military is a very small price for our glorious freedom. Tenaha Schools invites all veterans and military personnel from all branches of the military to join us for our Veterans Day Program on Monday, November 12th, at 9:30 a.m. in the school cafeteria. 

 

Our program will include performances by Kindergarten-Third Grade, members of the award winning Tenaha Roarin’ Band from Tigerland   and the VFW.  Military family members and community members are also invited to join our administration, faculty and students as we say “Thank You” to these men and women who served our country.  Refreshments will be served after the program. For more information contact Brenda Farmer at farmerbrenda@tenahaisd.com or 936-248-5000 ext. 503.

SFA Gardens' Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series to feature Director Dr. David Creech


 

 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Stephen F. Austin State University’s SFA Gardens will host the monthly Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, in the Brundrett Conservation Education Building at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center, located at 2900 Raguet St.

 

Dr. David Creech, SFA Gardens director and professor emeritus of agriculture, will present, “SFA Gardens: Where Good Ideas Meet Insurmountable Obstacles.”

 

Creech has been at SFA since September 1978. He received his bachelor’s degree in horticulture from Texas A&M University in 1970, a master’s degree in horticulture from Colorado State University in 1972, and returned to TAMU to receive his doctoral degree in 1978. After a long career in teaching, Creech retired in 2007. He returned to direct SFA Gardens in a part-time position. 

 

Creech’s research interests include fruit and vegetable, ornamental evaluation, endangered plants, salinity studies, woody tree and shrub evaluation, and investigating the potential of kiwifruit as a specialty crop for Texas. He also has authored numerous scholarly and trade articles and lectures widely.

 

Since 1981, Creech has accumulated a long list of international work in Pakistan, Guatemala, Mexico, Nepal, Israel and China. In the last 21 years, he has undertaken over 25 consultancies in China, working with the Blueberry Improvement Program and Taxodium Improvement Program at the Nanjing Botanical Garden, as well as connecting with the new plants arena in the China nursery and landscape industry. He is an advocate of increasing forest cover and smart use of land and plant resources. 

 

Creech has held positions within many organizations, including as president of the Native Plant Society of Texas and president of the Southern Region American Society of Horticulture Science. He is the current president of the Texas Association of Botanical Gardens and Arboreta and of the International Plant Propagation Society Southern Region.

 

The Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series is held the second Thursday of each month and includes a rare-plant raffle after the program. The lecture is free and open to the public, but donations to the Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series fund are always appreciated.

Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band concert celebrates Christmas traditions


 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Wind Symphony and the Symphonic Band at Stephen F. Austin State University will celebrate Christmas traditions from both at home and abroad when the bands perform at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus.


Under the direction of Chris Kaatz, assistant director of bands, the Symphonic Band opens the concert with John Philip Sousa’s “Hands Across the Sea.” The piece was likely inspired by a quote Sousa read during the time of the Spanish-American War, which said, “A sudden thought strikes me – let us sear an eternal friendship.”


“The work was written as a token of friendship to America’s early 20th century allies, and it was so well received at its premiere that the audience called for two encores,” Kaatz said.


Graduate student Gary Jones will conduct the second work, “The Sussex Mummers’ Christmas Carol,” which was written by Australian-American composer Percy Grainger. An avid collector of British folk music, Grainger originally set this traditional British carol for piano in 1905 and began sketches of an arrangement for band that remained unfinished upon his death, Kaatz explained. Famed 20th century bandleader Richard Franko Goldman completed Grainger’s band arrangement for a performance by the renowned Goldman Band in 1965.


The Symphonic Band will close its portion of the concert with Ron Nelson’s “Courtly Airs and Dances.” This composition is a setting of five Renaissance dances from five different European countries, according to Kaatz.


“Nelson melds charming Renaissance counterpoint with the rich trends in orchestration of the mid-20th century,” Kaatz said. “This work is a celebratory festival that merges musical trends across both time and continents, providing a pleasant close to the concert’s first half.”


Directed by Dr. Tamey Anglley, associate director of bands at SFA, the Wind Symphony will open the second half of the concert with “Festive Overture” by Dmitri Shostakovich and transcribed for band by Donald Hunsberger. Shostakovich wrote “Festive Overture” in 1954 on a commission for the Bolshoi Theatre’s celebration of the 37th anniversary of the October Revolution (in 1917). Shostakovich completed the piece in less than a week, Anglley said.


“It opens with an exuberant, rising fanfare, which transitions to a spritely, lyrical main theme at a breakneck tempo,” she said. “The overture speeds past, with a brief return to the fanfare figure before an energetic coda.”


The Wind Symphony will also perform “Russian Christmas Music” by Alfred Reed.  Originally written in November 1944, the piece was first performed in December of that year at a special concert in Denver, Colorado, by a select group of musicians from five of the leading service bands stationed in that area, according to Anglley.


“An ancient Russian Christmas carol  – “Carol of the Little Russian Children” – together with a good deal of original material and some motivic elements derived from the liturgical music of the Eastern Orthodox Church, forms the basis for this musical impression of Old Russia during the jubilant Christmas season,” Anglley said.


Wind Symphony will conclude the concert with Leroy Anderson’s famous Christmas tune, “Sleigh Ride.” In 2010, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers named “Sleigh Ride” the most popular piece of Christmas music in the USA based on performance data from 2,500 radio stations nationwide.


Composed in 1948 and with lyrics by Mitchell Parish added in 1950, there is no mention of any specific holiday. Leroy Anderson had intended it to be a musical vignette of an old-fashioned winter’s day, Anglley explained.


Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $3 for students and youth. For tickets or more information, call the SFA Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407 or visit www.finearts.sfasu.edu.

SFA to host Showcase Saturday for prospective students


 

 

 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Future college students will have the opportunity to experience a taste of campus life during a free, action-packed open house Saturday, Nov. 10, at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches.

 

Prospective students can visit with university faculty and staff, tour the campus and residence halls, and preview academic programs during the SFA Showcase Saturday event.

 

"A Showcase Saturday is the perfect way to visit the beautiful SFA campus and experience firsthand what it's like to be a Lumberjack," said Erma Nieto Brecht, SFA executive director of enrollment management. "Guests will have the opportunity to visit with faculty members to learn more about our quality academic programs, and staff members will be available to answer questions about everything from admission requirements to financial aid to residence life.”

SFA is a comprehensive, residential university located in the heart of Texas Forest Country. Approximately 13,100 students attend SFA, which is within a few hours’ drive of Texas' major metropolitan areas.

 

Showcase Saturday event check-in will begin at 11 a.m. on the first floor of the Baker Pattillo Student Center. The opening programs begin at 1 p.m. and will provide an overview of the day's events.

 

Guests will then be able to visit with representatives from academic departments until 4 p.m. during the Academic Fair in the Student Recreation Center. A Student Services Fair will be held from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on the first floor of the student center.

 

Campus and residence hall tours will begin at 1:30 p.m. and continue until 5 p.m. Campus tours will take students on a guided walk of the SFA campus while the self-guided residence hall tours will showcase several halls on both the north and south ends of campus.

 

Admissions counselors will be available to discuss admission procedures and requirements from 1:30 to 5 p.m. in the Rusk Building, Room 206, and during several freshman and transfer admissions sessions held throughout the day.

 

Several informational breakout sessions will take place simultaneously at 2, 3, and 4 p.m., including Residence Life sessions, financial aid sessions and freshman admissions sessions. Additional breakout sessions will take place on transfer admissions, orientation and VA/Hazlewood Act benefits.

 

In addition to receiving a high-energy Lumberjack experience, participating prospective students will receive a free SFA T-shirt after completing an evaluation form.

 

For more information about SFA's Showcase Saturday, contact the SFA Office of Admissions at (936) 468-2504, or email admissions@sfasu.edu.

SFA English professor premieres play at local theatre


 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — “Yes, We Deliver,” a play written by Dr. Ken Untiedt, Stephen F. Austin State University professor of English, will premiere in November at the Lamp-Lite Theatre.

 

The play tells the story of a wealthy young man who doesn’t want to be part of his family’s “shady business.” Instead, he becomes a pizza deliverer and encounters a variety of different people while trying to figure out his place in life.

 

Untiedt relied on his personal experience as a pizza deliverer to write the characters and script.

 

“I met a lot of different people during that job, and many of them are represented in the play,” Untiedt said.

 

“Yes, We Deliver” is Untiedt’s first play. He had the idea for years and would jot down snippets of scenes on paper when an idea struck him. Over the 2017 Christmas break, he finally decided to sit down and tie the scenes into a cohesive story. The process was a new one for Untiedt.

 

“Playwriting is different from poetry or fiction,” he explained. “It’s an interesting challenge.”

 

Part of Untiedt’s process was imagining how an audience would react to certain lines or characters. He thought through each detail to make sure it would draw out the reaction he wanted.

 

“Live theatre is dynamic and interactive,” Untiedt said, “which is different from writing a book and never seeing the audience’s reaction.”

 

Untiedt has been involved with the Lamp-Lite Theatre for many years. He has portrayed roles in a variety of plays at the theater and currently serves as a vice president on the Board of Directors.

 

“The Lamp-Lite is a phenomenal theater. It’s all volunteer, but they create amazing productions,” Untiedt said.

 

Though he was nervous about handing off his work, Untiedt delivered a copy to Sarah McMullan, founder and managing/artistic director of the Lamp-Lite Theatre.

 

“Sarah is a trusted friend, and I was so thrilled when she told me Lamp-Lite had to do my play,” he said.

 

Untiedt has chosen to be hands-off for the production aside from playing one minor role. It is yet another challenge he is facing in the world of playwriting.

 

“The director has done a great job, and the cast isn’t quite what I imagined — they’re better,” Untiedt said. “But it is still difficult to hand off a project that is so close to my heart.”

 

The play will show at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9 and 10 and 2 p.m. Nov. 11. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and $8 for students with a valid ID. The Lamp-Lite Theatre is located at Loop 224 and Old Tyler Road.

 

For more information, contact the theater at lamplitetheatre@yandex.com or (936) 564-8300.

SFA Wind Ensemble to perform 'Legacies' concert


 

 

 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Wind Ensemble at Stephen F. Austin State University will present the program “Legacies” in a concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus.


According to Dr. David Campo, director of bands at SFA and the Wind Ensemble, the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines legacy as “something transmitted by or received from an ancestor, predecessor or from the past.”


“Spirituals are among the musical legacies we have inherited in America,” Campo said, “and to celebrate this connection, the Wind Ensemble trumpet section will perform Terry Everson’s arrangement of the spiritual ‘There’s a Great Day Coming.’”


The Wind Ensemble will also perform John Barnes Chance’s “Blue Lake Overture.”


“Chance was a native Texan whose legacy was cut short by his untimely death in 1972, but he left the band world richer because of his compositions,” Campo said. “Blue Lake Overture” was the first commission by Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in 1970, and the Western Michigan University Wind Ensemble premiered the work in early 1971.


American composer Anthony Iannaccone’s work “After a Gentle Rain” is also on the program. In the opening woodwind statements, the audience will hear the influence of Iannaccone’s teacher, Aaron Copland, Campo said.


“Iannaccone’s legacy includes a Ravel Prize, C.F. Peters Prize and an Ostwald Award for ‘Sea Drift,’” Campo added.


The Wind Ensemble will perform Robert Russell Bennett’s “Suite of Old American Dances,” which offers a nostalgic look at the dances that were popular at the turn of the century and in which Bennett reminisces about Electric Park, an amusement park touted in the early 1900s as “Kansas City’s Coney Island.” Bennett stated, “Electric Park was a place of magic to us kids because of the tricks with big electric signs, the illuminated fountains, the big band concerts, the scenic railway and the big dance hall. One could hear in the dance hall all afternoon and evening the pieces the crowd danced to.”


Closing the concert will be Samuel Barber’s “Commando March,” which was written in 1943 and was his first work for wind band and his first work subsequent to entering the U.S. Army.


“There is no extant documentation regarding a formal commission or a direct military order,” Campo said, “rather it appears Barber was inspired to compose for the military bands he must have come in contact with during his basic training.”


The concert is a joint presentation of the College of Fine Arts and School of Music. Cole Concert Hall is located in the Tom and Peggy Wright Music Building, 2210 Alumni Drive.


Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $3 for students and youth. For tickets or more information, call the SFA Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407 or visit www.finearts.sfasu.edu.

SFA Percussion Ensemble to perform works of Beall, Werth, Roldán


 

 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Percussion Ensemble at Stephen F. Austin State University will perform the music of Andrew Beall, Nick Werth, Amadeo Roldán and other favorites in a concert at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus.


Directed by Dr. Brad Meyer, director of percussion studies at SFA, the Percussion Ensemble will also perform works by Eric Sammut, Austen White, Eckhard Kopetzki and Bill Alves.


According to the program notes, Beall’s “Rancho Jubilee” came from the name of a Dominican restaurant near the composer’s home in Washington Heights.


“Its fun décor and lively atmosphere mixed with Latin and Caribbean influences provide a nice setting for this – what is most likely the first of its kind – trio for cajons,” Beall writes. “Cajon is a Spanish word meaning ‘box.’ The instrument originated in Peru and later became popular in Spanish Flamenco music. Because of the wire strings extending across the cajon, it has a fantastic sound, much like a drumset, with snare and bass.”


In hip-hop culture, “Boom Bap” refers to a onomatopoeia for the prominent percussive sounds in the style-kick (“boom”) and snare (“bap”). From the golden era of the ’80s and ’90s to modern trap music, this groove-based drum sextet pays homage to the evolution of hip-hop, according to “Boom Bap” composer Werth.


Roldán’s “Ritmica No. 5” is based on the Cuban son (pronounced “sewn”) with a montuno section. This is evident in the overall form, instrumentation and rhythmic complexity of the work. The Cuban son originated as a rural song and dance style, and it was performed in a duple meter at a moderate to rapid tempo. The tempo marking for “Ritmica No. 5” is in the tempo of a son, and all the instruments except for the timpani are traditional Cuban instruments, Meyer explained.


Other works on the program include Kopetzki’s “Canned Heat,” Sammut’s “Four Rotations Pour Marimba” and Alves’ “Gandrung.”


The concert is a joint presentation of the College of Fine Arts and School of Music. Cole Concert Hall is located in the Tom and Peggy Wright Music Building, 2210 Alumni Drive.


Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $3 for students and youth. For tickets or more information, call the SFA Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407 or visit www.finearts.sfasu.edu.

Austin State University Office of Multicultural Affairs will host its second Brave Space Series of the fall semester at 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, in the Baker Pattillo Student Center Multimedia Room. The series will feature a discussion on the identity of mixed-race and multiracial individuals.

 

"This Brave Space Series will discuss topics regarding mixed-race and multiracial identity," Veronica Beavers, director of OMA, said. "This discussion will allow participants to gain insight about the thoughts and struggles a mixed or multiracial person might go through."

 

Each month, OMA's Brave Space Series provides a forum for open and honest discussion concerning difficult topics.

 

“Our goal is to have SFA students, faculty and staff come together to discuss intercultural and interfaith issues and concerns that affect our global, local and campus communities,” Beavers said.

 

The discussion is free and open to the SFA and Nacogdoches communities. For more information, visit http://www.sfasu.edu/multicultural/480.asp.

SFA students volunteer at GETCAP Head Start Family Fun Night


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Situated by the South America music table, Stephen F. Austin State University student Emma Blinn watches as children explore diverse cultures through playing with different musical instruments.

 

“It was so amazing to see the kids figure out how each instrument worked. This truly gave me a first encounter on how children absorb the world around them,” Blinn said. “There is something really special about seeing their curiosity come alive, even if it is just over a little xylophone.”

 

Blinn, along with several other SFA students enrolled in human development and family studies courses, and members of the Jacks Council on Family Relations, recently volunteered to participate in the Family Fun Night event at the Greater East Texas Community Action Program Head Start.

 

“Family Fun Night was really special because I got the chance to experience the family dynamics, sibling interactions and the overall atmosphere of Head Start,” Blinn said. “This heavily relates to my nursing field of study because it has shown me what type of approach I should take when it comes to speaking with this age group and helping them understand.”

 

During the event, all seven continents were represented to give students the opportunity to explore different cultures. Each station had interactive and educational activities for participants.

 

Dr. Flora Farago, assistant professor in SFA’s human development and family studies program, explained how this collaborative event provides SFA students with the opportunity to engage with and learn from community members and leaders from diverse cultural backgrounds. Farago said it also provides students with a way to support local agencies serving children and families.

 

“These experiences are mutually beneficial to our students, community members and agencies serving the Nacogdoches community,” Farago said.

The SFA Young Violinists will perform early in the evening, followed by local band El Camino Real de Nacogdoches.

 

The SFA Young Violinists, featuring SFA students under the instruction of Brenda Josephsen, have played at venues across East Texas, including the Nacogdoches Farmers’ Market, Lamp-Lite Theatre and the Pineywoods Herb Farm. 

 

In addition to private lessons, the students meet weekly to learn to play together as an ensemble. With accompanist Kaden Harman, The SFA Young Violinists will set the mood with saloon-style music.

 

El Camino Real de Nacogdoches will play old-time acoustic music on the fiddle, guitars, mandolin, banjos and percussion in what the band describes as “East Texas’ answer to The Old Crow Medicine Show.”

SFA to host International Poetry Reading night


 

 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — The Stephen F. Austin State University Department of Languages, Cultures and Communication will host the annual International Poetry Reading at 6 p.m. Nov. 13 at The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House.

 

The event will feature SFA students, faculty, staff and community readers presenting poetry in a variety of non-English languages.

 

Past presenters have spoken in Spanish, French, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Romanian, Russian, Greek, Latin, Bengali, Elvish and more.

 

“We ask each reader to briefly preview the poem in English, but, rather than rely on translations, we want audience members to appreciate and explore each language’s poetry on its own terms,” said Dr. Joyce Johnston, professor of French and co-coordinator of the event.

 

Readers often ask the audience to listen for a certain onomatopoeic sound, repetition or refrain in order for the audience to better understand the poem. Readers also may share the importance of the poem to its native language’s culture. Some presenters sing poems or present original works.

 

Fabiola Juarez, a senior political science major, has presented poems in French and Spanish. Participating in the readings in the past has taught her to be more appreciative of all languages, and she has enjoyed hearing poetry read and interpreted in different languages.

 

“This event is important because it exposes us to so many different languages and poetry. I feel like sometimes we don’t give much appreciation to other languages and poetry,” Juarez said. “However, this event makes us sit down and open our eyes and heart to such a wonderful experience.”

 

The event is part of the Department of Languages, Cultures and Communication international arts series. Throughout the year, the department hosts a variety of events that expose the SFA and Nacogdoches communities to international movies, books, music and more. 

 

This event is open to the public, and free refreshments will be served.

 

For more information, contact Johnston at (936) 468-6722 or Dr. Louise Stoehr, associate professor of German, at (936) 468-2167.

Fight, love scenes in 'Oklahoma!' require intricate timing, technique


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas – Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II’s “Oklahoma!” is known as the breakthrough musical of its time with songs like “Oklahoma!” and “Oh What a Beautiful Mornin’” that have withstood time in popularity.


Set in Oklahoma Territory at the turn of the 20th century, it tells the story of farm girl Laurey Williams and her courtship by two rival suitors, cowboy Curly McLain and farmhand Jud Fry. Between the story, the memorable music, the elaborate dancing and fight scenes that define “Oklahoma!,” the show has something for every audience member, according to Angela Bacarisse, professor of theatre at Stephen F. Austin State University and director of the show for the School of Theatre’s Mainstage Series.


A collaborative production between the university’s School of Theatre, School of Music and the Dance Program, “Oklahoma!” will seamlessly and artistically come to life nightly on W.M. Turner Stage Nov. 6 through 10. But the preparation behind the scenes, specifically fast-paced fight scenes and sweet love scenes, comes from a careful concentration on timing and technique. Slade Billew, assistant professor of acting and movement, is working with students on scenes that involve violence and intimacy.


“There are some big fights, mostly fist, in the play, but the weapons that are used must be very carefully choreographed so that no one gets injured,” explained Bacarisse. “And, you cannot imagine how awkward it can be the first time a young actor is asked to kiss someone who is, in truth, a stranger. There is a skill and a way of setting up those scenes that keeps it professional and relieves some of the tension. There are a lot of ‘young loves’ in this show who will be working on this aspect of the craft of acting.”


Fight choreography starts with discussions between the choreographer and the director about the style of the show and how the fights should feel to the audience, Billew said. Fight scenes in some shows will seem like real violence, while those scenes in others, like “Oklahoma!,” are more stylized, he explained.


“I like to create choreography in collaboration with the actors, so that I can better adapt to their abilities,” Billew said. “We build each fight using a combination of the actors' understanding of their characters and my knowledge of both actual fighting and stage combat technique.”


Fight-scene safety is all about precision and control of distance, Billew said. The actors must do the moves the same way every time.


SFA theatre students who take movement courses learn unarmed and rapier/dagger fighting for the stage. In rehearsals, students learn the specific fights they are performing. For “Oklahoma!,” that included various punches, kicks and grappling maneuvers, depending on the fight. There are also some knife-fighting scenes and the use of some prop firearms, Billew said.


“Students who perform in these fights or use these prop weapons learn a variety of details of handling them for both safety and the illusion of reality,” he said “Also, in working on ‘Oklahoma!,’ we have used a heightened style that looks a bit more like the fights in a western movie from the 1950s as opposed to a more contemporary martial arts based style.”


Lastly, stage fights are performed a little slower than a real fight would happen. This is not necessarily for safety, but rather because faster movement makes it more difficult for the audience to follow the action, Billew explained.


At the other end of the spectrum are the love scenes in “Oklahoma!” Choreographing intimacy is a relatively new process in the theatre, said Billew, adding that he has only been working in this arena for the last few years since first encountering the work of Tonia Sina and her organization Intimacy Directors International.


“Stage intimacy, as I have learned to approach it, has five key elements: context, communication, consent, choreography and closure,” Billew said. “Culturally, theatre artists of all kinds often feel uncomfortable even talking about, much less staging, moments of physical intimacy. This has often led to unsafe practices of various kinds. Many of these issues have been brought forward in the past few years.


“Choreographing intimacy is about creating a rehearsal environment around intimate scenes that encourages open communication among the creative team,” he said. “We choreograph the intimate moments so that everyone feels safe and has consented to the staging. This makes the actors better able to commit to playing the moment because they know what is going to happen and are comfortable with it.”


Lastly, it can be difficult for any actor, but especially student actors to separate personal feelings from character feelings, Billew said. The closure process gives actors a way to remind themselves that their relationship to their scene partner is professional, and they are more easily able to keep their personal daily life separate from the character life they are exploring on stage, he explained.


For “Oklahoma,” choreography was used to both nuance and heighten moments, Billew said.


“Intimacy choreography allows us to explore details of intimate moments that we do instinctually in daily life, but that often gets left out on stage,” he said. “Something as seemingly simple as the hugs between Laurey and Curly are choreographed as a series of ‘moments’ rather than just a hug.”


Similar to the fights, the romance in “Oklahoma!” is bigger than is normally found in life.


“Oklahoma!” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, Nov. 6 through 10, in W.M. Turner Auditorium in the Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive, on the SFA campus.


Single tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and $7.50 for youth. Tickets for SFA students are $5. For tickets or more information, call the SFA Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407 or visit www.theatre.sfasu.edu.

SFA's Cello Club to present concert dedicated to peace


 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Cello Club at Stephen F. Austin State University will present a concert dedicated to peace at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus as part of the Friends of Music Concert Series.


The concert’s theme of peace commemorates 100 years since the armistice that ended World War I, according to Dr. Evgeni Raychev, instructor of cello in the SFA School of Music.


“All of the compositions on the program are original arrangements and transcriptions from a wide range of genres; they will be heard for the first time in this ensemble form,” Raychev said.


The program will range from works by Franz Schubert and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky to music by Heitor Villa-Lobos and the English rock band Deep Purple.


“All arrangements will be familiar, and the listener will recognize tunes from the sweet lyricism of Schubert and Tchaikovsky all the way to the exotic sounds of Villa-Lobos and the heavy riff-based music of Deep Purple,” Raychev said.


Cello Club is an ensemble that has been prepared through one-on-one communication between each performer and Raychev, either in person or through the Internet. The performance will gather on Cole stage more than 30 cellists from throughout state of Texas.

Kambli exhibition to close with artist's lecture, reception


 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The exhibition “Priya Kambli: Color Falls Down” will close Thursday, Nov. 8, on the Stephen F. Austin State University with an artist’s lecture and a reception.

Following the lecture, a closing reception with the artist will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Griffith Gallery where her work has been displayed since the beginning of the fall semester.


Kambli’s photographs interweave early memories of her childhood in India with more recent experiences of her adult life in the United States, including marriage and motherhood. Her images are centered in a sense of longing that is not uncommon for those existing within two cultures and for whom the idea of home stretches over multiple places, according to John Handley, director of SFA art galleries.


The exhibition is sponsored in part by the SFA Friends of the Visual Arts, The Flower Shop and William Arscott.


Griffith Gallery is located in the Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive. Hours are from 12:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters. For more information, call (936) 468-1131.

Tenaha Band Ties for 4th at Area Finals


 

 

 

The Roarin’ Band from Tigerland competed at the UIL Area C Marching Contest on October 27th in Pirate Stadium at Pine Tree High School. The band put on a great performance at Area prelims that earned them a spot at Area finals.  Later that evening, they put on a near flawless performance that earned them a three way tie for 4th place.  Unfortunately, only three bands advance to state. 

 

Despite many very positive comments from the judges, the band missed advancing to the State Marching Contest by only three points.  One judge did rank the band 1st in the music category, and another judge ranked them 3rd in marching, but the overall math just did not fall in the band’s favor yesterday. 

 

Nevertheless, it was a very successful and rewarding end to a fantastic marching season.  Great job band!  We also want to wish the three bands that advanced from the East Texas Area (Carlisle, Timpson, & Union Grove) the best of luck at the State level!

Hannah Ramirez came up big for the Fillies with 23 digs, many of which came against the NJCAA kills leader Shelby Sheets.

In their second match of the day, Panola was once again led by Correa who notched 10 kills and Riley Seegers who added 7 kills on .500 hitting. At the net, Correa and Carol Santana were a force with 3 block assists apiece. Harris and McGown dished out 15 assists each and McGown added 2 service aces. MiKayla Ware and Hannah Ramirez anchored the floor defense with 9 digs each, while Sabrina de Lima added 8 of her own.

 

"We battled through adversity today," said Panola head coach Amber McCray. 

"This was a great test for our team heading into a tough regional tournament, and I'm proud of the way we stepped up."

 

Panola finishes the regular season 25-6 overall and currently ranked 15th nationally heading into the Region XIV Tournament as the fourth seed from the North. PC is set to play Wharton College Thursday at 7pm.

Shelbyville Teacher of the Week


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Teacher of the week is Michelle Peña. Ms.Peña has been teaching for three years. She was a student before she started teaching. She wanted to teach at Shelbyville because it was a small school and it was close to SFA, which was convenient for her Master’s Degree. She is the yearbook advisor, a junior sponsor, and the UIL spelling coach. Her hobbies include sleeping, watching movies, and reading. Her favorite sports are Basketball and Softball. Her role models are her older sisters. The best part of working at Shelbyville is the awesome staff and getting to know the students better. She wishes that her students take from her class the ability to understand sarcasm and to be open to different cultures and people in the world. Her life advice for her students is to be kind to one another and if you have the opportunity to travel, it doesn’t matter where, take it. She says it feels surprising, but awesome to be teacher of the week and wants to thank the football team for thinking of her.

LETU TO PRESENT FREE FILM ON LIFE OF MARTIN LUTHER OCT. 30


 

 

 

 

(Longview, Texas) –LeTourneau University will present a free, public showing of a film adaptation on the life of Martin Luther at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30, in Berry Auditorium (C101) in the Glaske Center at the university’s main campus 2100 S. Mobberly Avenue in Longview.

Nominated for two Oscars and praised when it debuted, Martin Luther (1953), starring Niall MacGinnis, remains one of the most widely watched adaptations of the Reformer’s life. The film runs approximately 90 minutes.

 

The public is invited to celebrate with students the beginning of the Protestant Reformation when Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on a church door in Wittenberg, Germany on Oct. 31, 1517, which is Reformation Day. 

 

“Martin Luther is a man who changed the world,” said Martin Batts, LETU professor emeritus of English and Philosophy.  “We will celebrate Reformation Day by viewing this film of passion and power.  Luther was a brilliant, forceful and commanding presence and his legacy lives on with us today.”

 

The event is sponsored by the LETU’s Department of Humanities and Social Sciences and School of Theology and Vocation.

 

LeTourneau University is the Christian polytechnic university in the nation where educators engage students to nurture Christian virtue, develop competency and ingenuity in their professional fields, integrate faith and work, and serve the local and global community. LETU offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs across a range of disciplines and delivery models at LETU’s residential campus in Longview, Texas, hybrid options at centers in the Dallas and Houston areas and fully online programs.

Flu Shot Clinic Dates Added Following Large Turn-out


 

 

Dear Parents/ Guardians,


Due to the overwhelming response to the district wide flu shot clinic on October 24, Aurora
Concepts will be opening up 2 more afternoons to give student flu shots at school.
Tuesday October 30: Center Middle School
Wednesday October 31: Center Intermediate School
For students at other campuses who did not receive their flu-shot at the previous clinic
and still wish to receive one, let the school nurse for the appropriate campus know
ASAP. These will be given following the clinics at the Middle School and Intermediate
School.


You do not have to be present when your student receives his/her immunization as long as you
have submitted prior written consent. Consent forms were sent out in the packets with other
school forms the first week of school. If you are unsure if your child returned his/her consent
form , please go to https://www.auroraconcepts.net/patient-resources, print, and complete the
Vaccine Consent Form listed under Children’s Forms. It is important that the insurance
section of the consent form be filled out in its entirety in order for immunizations to be
filed on insurance. If your child does not have health insurance, the cost is $5.00 per
immunization due at the time of service. If you are underinsured (you have insurance, but
insurance does not cover immunizations) you must still complete the insurance section.
The deadline for registration and turning in completed consent forms is MONDAY, OCTOBER
29. In order to complete insurance verification and to ensure that enough supplies are available
the day of the clinic, it is important that this deadline be met.


If there are any additional immunizations that your child needs, please make arrangements with
the school nurse on your child’s campus ahead of time in order to assure that there are enough
vaccines and supplies available to accommodate your child the day of the clinic.


Thank you,
Morgan Nix, BSN, RN
CISD RN Coordinato

Panola College Men's Rodeo Team Still on Top of the Southern Region!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Panola College Men’s Rodeo Team held on to the number one spot in the Southern Region after traveling to Mt. Pleasant, TX, for the third Southern Region Rodeo this past weekend.  Coach Collins and his team, looking to land one of the top two spots for the opportunity to qualify for the College National Finals Rodeo in June, had another good showing at the Northeast Texas Community College Rodeo. Panola had 4 guys that led the way and earned points for the team. 

 

Tyler Johnson, a sophomore from Athens, TX, won the Bareback Riding with a score of 78 points. Tyler is having a great year after rebounding from the broken leg that knocked him out last year.  “Tyler was a key part of our team last season, and we are so proud he is back and expect great things from him this season,” said Coach Jeffrey Collins.

 

Travis Chapman, from Spurger, TX, was not far behind Tyler scoring a 77 in the bareback riding for a 2nd place finish. Chapman qualified for his first trip to the CNFR last season and placed 4th in the nation.  “Travis is set on winning a National title this season in the Bareback Riding”, noted Coach Collins, “I have every bit of confidence he can achieve that goal.  I just have to remind him and all my players to take it one rodeo at a time. Athletes in the rodeo world can get wrapped up in the big picture, we just need to stay calm and take care of what’s important now. “

Logan Cook, last year’s Southern Region All-Around Champion from Alto, TX, showed why he was the champ by placing 5th in tie down roping and 5th saddle bronc.  “Logan is a great athlete, he has been to the CNFR the last two seasons and understands what it takes to get there.  I am excited about his season and his career once he leaves here and moves on to pro rodeos,” said Coach Collins.

 

Macon Murphy, a freshman from Keatchie, LA, rounded out the scoring for the Panola Team as he placed 8th in the tie down calf roping.  Murphy has been placing a lot and Coach Collins had this to say “Macon is one of the hardest workers on this team. He handles his business and is always prepared to win. I love his attitude and his work ethic. Macon has become a strong player for us, and is set for a good future in rodeo!” 

 

The Rodeo Team travels to Lake Charles, LA for the McNeese State University Rodeo this weekend,  October 26-27 for the 4th of the 5 Fall Southern Region Rodeo’s.

Panola College Foundation Raises $47,000 with Purses for Ponies


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Saturday, October 20, almost 540 attendees gathered at the Carthage Civic Center to play bingo for a chance to win designer purses and other prizes, all for a great cause. Designer Purse Bingo raised more than $47,000 to support Panola College students through scholarships, program grants and other college projects. This was the 5th Designer Purse Bingo fundraising event, hosted by the Panola College Foundation.

 

 

It is through the help of this event that Panola College and the Panola College Foundation were able to award over $120,000 in scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year. In the past twelve years, the Panola College Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit, has awarded almost 1000 scholarships worth over three quarters of a million dollars. They have also awarded 80 faculty and staff grants valued at over $230,000 in the past eight years.

 

Gloria Arellano of Carthage, TX, is a Panola College student who directly benefited from the funds raised from Designer Purse Bingo. Gloria has lived in Carthage since the age of 6 and is currently attending Panola College to become an Occupational Therapy Assistant. She said she chose to attend Panola College for the outstanding OTA program with excellent teachers, but also because the location was close to her home making it convenient and cost-effective as well.

 

“Being the first in my family to attend college and paying my own college tuition, with the help of scholarships, I needed as few expenses as possible,” said Gloria. “I am very thankful to the donors for making this possible for students like myself. I cannot express the gratitude I felt upon reading the email announcing me as the recipient of the Panola College Foundation Scholarship, thank you so much for the generosity of providing this scholarship.”

 

The event began with Don Clinton, Vice President of Student Services at Panola College, entertaining the audience as the emcee for the occasion thanking our sponsors and calling out the anticipated bingo numbers all evening. Guests also enjoyed a photo booth which printed souvenir photos of their evening, sponsored by First State Bank and Trust Company of Carthage. Guests also enjoyed beautiful potted centerpieces sponsored by Fidelity Communications, which were later sold as part of the fundraiser.

 

Pippen Motor Company and Rural Water Service sponsored koozies for the evening, and Kelly’s Auto Collision sponsored souvenir glasses for the guests. For this first time, a signature drink was available for purchase brought to guests by sponsor, Simply Beautiful Salon with Rachel Davis.

 

Game sponsors included Carthage Economic Development, Carthage Furniture, Farmers State Bank, Golden Eye Associates, Hayli Cagle with Keller Williams, Kimberly’s Kreations, LimeLife by Alcone with Brandie Best, Panola National Bank, Rancho Grande, Sanford & Sons, Inc., Texas Home Health, and Youngblood Oil & Products.

 

Double Dazzle sponsors included Car-Tex Transport and Vacuum, Edward Jones with Vicky Hudson in Center, TX, and the Winkler Place. Dazzle sponsors were Angela LaGrone, Chastiti Horne, Citizens Bank, Genpak, L&K Express Wash, Sharon Ivey, and Shelby Savings Bank.

 

Bingo game purses included 24 different purses including brands such as Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Consuela, and Coach, which were modelled most professionally by volunteers from the Panola College baseball team. A popular bling ring raffle, sponsored by Luminant, consisted of prizes of donations from Sunflower Mercantile, Chicken Row Market, Kendra Scott, and the Panola College Foundation.

 

This event would not be possible without all the amazing volunteers. Panola College Occupational Therapy Assistant students and instructors, and the Panola College Green Jackets were instrumental in keeping the event running smoothly. Additional support for Designer Purse Bingo came from Arnold Graphic Design, Brookshire Brothers, Chicken Express, Dazzle’s Collectibles, H.E.B., Kountry Fresh Pizza, Panola College faculty and staff, Photography by Teresa Cage Beasley, R&K Distributors, Republic National, and Whataburger.

 

Another student who received a scholarship funded through Designer Purse Bingo was Andres Leon of Tenaha, TX. Andres is a member of the Panola College band where he plays the euphonium/baritone. He is also involved in the Student Government Association, Caddo Club, History Club, and the collegiate FFA chapter. He hopes to become a lawyer and focus on pro bono work after college.

 

“I chose Panola College because of its good reputation, proximity to my family, and affordability. I am a first-generation college student, so it was important that I attend an affordable local school,” said Andres. “Thank you so much for your generosity. If it weren't for financial help like this, it would be impossible for me to pursue my education. This scholarship will let me focus on school and without it I would be unable to pay for my textbooks and labs. Thank you, I greatly appreciate it.”

 

“It is for students, like Andres and Gloria, that we work hard to raise funds to support the success of students at Panola College. The Panola College Foundation has been thrilled with the outcome of our Designer Purse Bingo events,” said Jessica Pace, Director of Institutional Advancement at Panola College. “The evening is always exciting and the number of people who come to support Panola College is remarkable. We hope that this event continues to be successful and is reflected in the support the Foundation is able to provide students.”

 

Pace recommends marking your calendars for our 6th Designer Purse Bingo for Friday, March 22, 2019 and watch for ticket sales to open on January 15th.
