No Such Thing as a Night “Off” for Tiger Hoops


 

Tiger Daily
 
While there won’t be any games, there is still plenty for the coaches of the
Tigers and Lady Tigers Basketball programs to do on a game night for
District 22-2A.  Tenaha has its scheduled “bye” tonight, but action will
heat up in games with multiple playoff implications.  Timpson and
Shelbyville renew a Shelby County rivalry tonight while Woden travels to
Chireno and Joaquin travels to San Augustine.  However, district play won’t
be the only thing under review by Coaches Davison and Jenkins.  In fact, the
process of information gathering and viewing for potential playoff matchups
begins tonight as Tiger coaches will split up all over East and Southeast
Texas over the coming couple of weeks to get their eyes on potential playoff
foes.  Tiger coaches will travel as far as Sabine Pass and Evadale to the
South and as far as Kerens, Italy, Bosqueville, and Rosebud to the west.  In
fact, a trip to Crawford may also be on deck before the post-season begins.
Stay tuned to the Tiger Daily as each game approaches.
 
The Tigers return to the court this Friday in a tilt with Shelbyville will
three games beginning at 4:30 PM in Shelbyville.
 
 
 
Classroom Live is Coming to a Social Media Outlet near You!
 
Our principals are busy putting together plans to pilot a new feature soon
called “Classroom Live”.  It is our hope to be able to broadcast various
teachers’ classes from time to time live on the TISD Facebook page.  It is
an opportunity to let the public see some of the amazing work that our
teachers and students do every day.  Stay tuned to the Tiger Daily and to
the TISD Facebook page for updates and schedules.  We are very excited to
share some classroom experiences with our stakeholders in real time.

Tiger Daily


 

 
The Tiger Daily Returns!!!
 
We are proud to announce the return of the Tiger Daily to all TENAHA
INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT stakeholders, supporters, and members!  We have
decided to try and bring the Tiger Daily back to our many members of the
Tiger Nation to try and give everyone a day by day account of the many great
things happening with Tenaha kids and the TENAHA INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT
staff.  We are going to make an attempt to bring the “TD” back in a new
format by having a little less in the form of news and updates and more in
terms of blogs and thoughts from various administration members.  Of course
there will be updates to the happenings around the Tigers and Lady Tigers
Athletics teams, as well as news and “real time” updates on the TENAHA
INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT Facebook page and on the TENAHA INDEPENDENT
SCHOOL DISTRICT website.   But, it is our hope to bring some “insider”
thought and sight into what is actually going on with Tenaha students every
day.  We hope you enjoy keeping up with the Tiger Nation and look forward as
always to your feedback.  You can expect your daily dose of the Tiger Daily
to include a short blog about various topics that impact our school on any
occasion by one of our administrators as well as a rundown of the week’s
events and calendar, and up to the minute attendance and enrollment data for
TENAHA INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT.

Another Bear Update


 
 
TISD FIRST Report – Timpson ISD received a score of 100 on the 2015-2016 Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) report. By receiving a perfect score of 100, Timpson ISD is rated A = Superior. On this report, districts are rated on various performance metrics called indicators relating to financial management. These indicator ratings inform the school district and public of how well the district is doing financially. Ratings are based on analysis of staff and student data for the school year, and on budgetary and actual financial data for the fiscal year. The primary goals of the school FIRST report are to:
 
 
 
Efficiently assess the quality of financial management in Texas public schools
 
Measure and report the intent to which financial resources in Texas public schools assure the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes
 
Implement a rating system that fairly and equitably evaluates the quality of financial management decisions
 
Improve the management of school district’s financial resources
 
Increase financial accountability within Texas’ public education system
 
TISD Superintendent Dr. Mid Johnson expresses his appreciation to the business office staff, Janie Rains and Debbie Golden, TISD staff and the school board for their efforts to correctly use district funds for the benefit of our students. He also said the district has an obligation to the tax payers to use funds generated through their taxes to educate and provide for the TISD students.
 
 
 
Timpson ISD Honors School Board – Timpson ISD honors our school board members during January which is board appreciation month. We will spotlight a board member each day in the Bear Update.
 
 
 
George Duke serves as president of the Timpson ISD Board of Trustees. He has served over 30 years as a board member. In addition to his service to Timpson ISD’s children, he also serves Timpson Missionary Baptist Church as a song leader, deacon, church treasurer and in the adult men’s Sunday School class. Mr. Duke is very proud of the Timpson ISD teachers, staff and administrators stating that everyone who works at the district is caring and dedicated to serving the needs of our students. He said he appreciates all those staff members who put in extra time to encourage, support and teach students by their word and example and help ensure that students have the opportunity to achieve in educational and extra-curricular pursuits. He is proud of how well the physical plant is maintained and looks forward to the new buildings and renovations and upgrades that are being made possible through the recent bond election that will provide added academic/extra-curricular opportunities for students.

Bear Update


 

 
TISD Collegiate Center News – Timpson High School has 96 students enrolled in dual credit and certification/license courses this semester.  This is over twice the number of students enrolled last semester.  Collegiate Center staff and classroom teachers are encouraging students to take the TSI (Texas Success Initiative) test required to take college classes.  A second number of TISD students have taken and passed this test which makes taking college classes while still in high school an option for those students interested in obtaining a two year college Associates degree before high school graduation.  Tuition and books for these classes are paid by the district.  With the average national cost of college at a public in-state college approximately $25,000 per year, completing two years of college before high school can help make college more affordable and manageable for students wishing to complete a four year degree.  Currently there are 26 students enrolled in dual credit online classes at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, 37 enrolled in Panola College, 3 taking word processing and 5 taking an OSHA certification class.  Over 1/3 of THS students are enrolled in dual credit/certification classes.

Fillies Win!!!


 

The Fillies have finished their first half of conference play with a big
win over Paris Junior College. The Panola women's basketball team came out
on top with an 80-51 road game victory. This result puts them at 6-4 in
conference and 15-5 overall. This also marks one of the best conference
starts in the last 10 years.
 
With a shaky first half, the Fillies found themselves down 2 heading into
the locker room at 32-30. They had a scoring drought for almost 8 minutes
until Sophomore Genesis Rivera a basket to get things going. The Dragons and Fillies would trade baskets until Paris' Leah Jossell hit her 4th 3 pointer to finish the half and take
their lead.
 
In the second half of tonight's story, a new fire seemed to be sparked in
the Fillies as they came out hot. The score would be tied up at twice in
the third, once at 37, then again at 45 but once the Fillies passed that
mark, they never looked back. The whole second half was nothing but the
bottom of the net for the Fillies as they outscored Paris 50-19. "It was
more of our game tonight. We finally seemed to click as a team again"
stated Head Coach Eddie Kite. The girls shot 42% from the field, which is
just under their season average of 44%, but looked more like a cohesive
unit tonight.
 
Sophomore Genesis Rivera
<https://panola.prestosports.com/sports/wbkb/2016-17/bios/rivera_gensis_zs3t>
and
Freshman Patience Okpe
<https://panola.prestosports.com/sports/wbkb/2016-17/bios/okpe_patience_5q1c>
led
the Fillies with 16 points apiece. Combined they also added 8 rebounds, 8
assists, and 5 steals. Sophomore Charlynn Perry
<https://panola.prestosports.com/sports/wbkb/2016-17/bios/perry_charlynn_a2pi>
and
Freshman Ekaterina Karchevskaya
<https://panola.prestosports.com/sports/wbkb/2016-17/bios/karchevskaya_ekaterina_mf01>
both
add 10 points in the win as well. The Fillies as a whole won the rebounding
battle, bringing down 49.
 
The next game will be this Saturday, January 28th in A.J. Gymnasium against
Jacksonville College at 2:00 p.m.

Collegiate Center News – Dr. Lillian Porter, Director of Early College High Schools/Dual Credit at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin (UTPB) recently spoke to Timpson ISD students, staff and parents about the opportunities taking dual credit classes offer students.  Students can earn up to a two year college Associates degree by taking dual credit classes while in high school.  Dual credit classes earn students both high school and college credit.  Dr. Porter said she was able to earn her doctorate degree by continuing to walk through doors that opened for her.  She encouraged Timpson students to do the same.  Dr. Porter went on to say that a big door had opened to Timpson students with the district paying for tuition, fees and books for students taking dual credit classes. Timpson ISD has to pay much less than students would pay once they graduate.

Slow Start Still Leads to Victory For Fillies


 

The Fillies didn't seem to be themselves as they started off with only 12 points and were only up by 1 point in the first quarter. They average 18 from the jump this season. The rest of the way would light up for Panola as they started to connect on more shots down the stretch.
 
With some silly turnovers and bad ball control, the Fillies found themselves down 2-0. However that would be BPCC's largest and only lead over the Fillies. After a quick quarter, the Fillies got their minds right and connected on a basket from Sophomore Denasia Watson to tie it up. From there the Fillies and Cav's would trade a few baskets with Panola always ahead by 1 or 2.
 
In the third, Freshman Stefany Lourenco went 3-4 from the 3 point line and helped push the Fillies up by as much as 20. She would finish the night as the Fillies leading scorer with 15. Freshman Patience Okpe followed through with 14 points and Sophomore Tameal Jones came off the bench to add her 9. Sophomore Denasia Watson added a new career high in rebounds as she came away with 11.
 
The Fillies will continue their season on the January 25th at Paris Junior College at 5:30 p.m.

Panola College Twirlers to entertain at halftime


 
Beginning with the home games scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 4, basketball
halftime shows will feature performances by the Panola College Twirlers.
 
 
Panola College had Twirlers in the 90’s but it “kind of fizzled out,”
according to team sponsor Kimberly Ferguson.  Ferguson suggested the return
of the twirling group, and her energy and enthusiasm has made it happen.
Ferguson began her own twirling career in the Carthage school system
beginning in the sixth grade. She twirled all through high school, and,
after graduation, she tried out and was selected to become an SFA
Twirl-o-Jack. After completing her bachelor’s degree, she continues to
practice and has started teaching twirling.
 
 
The program was reintroduced primarily due to the lack of any Panola
College Spirit Teams. In addition to simply performing, the twirlers will
serve as a sort of ambassador for Panola College, participating in parades
and other local events, giving them the opportunity to hone their
networking skills.
 
 
Tryouts were held in late fall and resulted in four candidates making the
team. The team consists of Head Twirler Malory Sims, Head Assistant Amanda
Zahn, Sophomore Isabella Flesher and Freshman MaKayla Baker.
 
 
Malory Sims was active as a twirler in Center High School, serving as head
twirler for two years. She has six years of twirling experience, and
is currently in the music program and is a Health Science Major.
 
 
Amanda Zahn was active as a twirler in Tatum High School and has a total of
seven years of twirling experience.  She is a General Studies Major.
 
 
Sophomore Isabella Flesher is from Henderson and learned to twirl under the
tutelage of Paige Keitt at Precision Twirl. She is currently enrolled in
the Drama program and has five years of twirling experience.
 
 
Freshman MaKayla Baker from Timpson has a total of eight years in
experience twirling. She is currently enrolled in the Associate Degree
Nursing Program.
 
 
The twirlers will attend practices and performances, with practices not to
exceed 10 hours a week. Twirlers must maintain a minimum GPA requirement of
2.0. Performances to both pre-recorded music as well as band performances
are planned. Their first performance is scheduled for halftime at the home
basketball games on Saturday, Feb. 4.
 
 
Although the window of opportunity to join the team for this semester has
closed, aspiring hopefuls can prepare for next year’s tryouts that will be
held sometime in May.

TES Agents for Change - The Timpson Elementary Agents for Change met on January 12, 2017 in the elementary library. Agents for Change is a group that does random acts of kindness around the school and in the community. Students must be in grades 3 – 5 and have good citizenship in order to remain in the group. The Agents met on January 12th to discuss plans and committees for the spring. This fine group of 80+ young people will be doing many projects over the next few months. They are always looking for ways to serve others and we are very proud of them at Timpson Elementary School. They are sponsored by Mrs. Sparks, counselor and Mrs. Simmons, reading lab teacher. Attached is a photo from the meeting.

Panola College partners with SFASU for bachelor's degrees


 
 
 
 
Panola College and Stephen F. Austin State University have entered into an
agreement that will create a seamless transition allowing students in
technical programs at Panola to transfer coursework toward a Bachelor of
Applied Arts & Sciences (BAAS) at SFASU.
 
 
 
Administrators from both Panola College and SFASU met Thursday, Jan. 12, to
sign a Memorandum of Understanding establishing the partnership. Beginning
in fall 2017, Panola College students who have earned an Associate of
Applied Science degree in an energy technology program may transfer the
required 45 technical hours and complete a Bachelor of Applied Arts and
Sciences degree at SFASU.
 
 
 
Dr. Greg Powell, Panola College President, said the agreement paves the way
for students who wish to further their education beyond the Associate of
Applied Science degree.
 
 
 
“Panola College has a high level of cooperation and leadership with SFA.
When we have people on our advisory boards tell us that employees who have
completed associate degrees at Panola College have the potential to move
into management roles that require bachelor’s degrees, we want to step up
to the plate and help them,” he said.
 
 
 
The agreement includes a dual admissions process, with applications and
transcripts going to both Panola College and SFA at the time the students
register and declare their intention to work towards the BAAS degree.
 
 
 
Initially, the agreement benefits students who have completed associate
degrees in an Energy Technology program and wish to start the bachelor’s
degree program in fall 2017. The second degree included in the articulation
agreement is for a BAAS degree in Ranch & Land Management. This new
technical area was piloted at Panola in 2016, and courses for the associate
degree will be in place in fall 2017.
 
 
 
The Ranch & Land Management program provides practical and educational
experiences in animal science, basic electrical, mechanical engines, soil
science, whitetail deer management, and pasture management.  Ranch & Land
Management majors will be prepared to manage farms, ranches and other
agricultural businesses.
 
 
 
The School of Energy at Panola College offers Associate of Applied Science
degrees in Electrical & Instrumentation, Natural Gas Compression, Petroleum
Technology, and Welding Technology.
 
 
 
The SFASU Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) allows students to
apply credits earned through community college vocational or technical
programs, military training, and occupational licensure or certification
toward completion of a bachelor’s degree.
 
 
 
“SFA is the university of choice for Panola College students,” said Dr. Joe
Shannon, Vice President of Instruction. “We are excited about the
opportunity to work with SFA to provide our technical students with
bachelor’s degree options.”
 
 
 
Panola College administrators and faculty members participating in the
signing were Dr. Powell; Dr. Shannon; Don Clinton, Vice President Student
Services; Troy Caserta, Vice President for Fiscal Services; Jessica Pace,
Director of Institutional Advancement; Natalie Oswalt, Dean of Professional
& Technical Programs; Jeremy Dorman, Registrar; Daniel Hall, Department
Chair, School of Energy; Jim Permenter, Professor, School of Energy;
Michael Pace, Instructor, School of Energy; Ernest Spencer, Professor,
School of Energy; Laura Vance, Professor, School of Energy, and Tim
Singletary, Professor, School of Energy.
 
 
 
SFASU administrators at the event included Dr. Baker Pattillo, President;
Dr. Steve Westbrook, Vice President for University Affairs; Dr. Steve
Bullard, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs; Dr. Danny
Gallant, Vice President for Finance and Administration; Jill Still, Vice
President for University Advancement; Dr. Brian Murphy, Dean, College of
Liberal and Applied Arts (CLAA); Dr. Hans Williams, Interim Dean, Arthur
Temple College of Forestry & Agriculture; Dr. Marc Guidry, Associate Dean,
CLAA; Dr. Steve Cooper, Associate Dean, CLAA; and Carolyn Hardy, Assistant
Director, Admissions and Transfer Services.

Joaquin 2nd Grader Competes in AQHA competition


 
Lucinda David traveled to Fort Worth this weekend to compete in the American Quarter horse Association Versatility Ranch Horse Competition. 
She competed in a class with 20 other competitors. Lucinda ended up overall in the top half of the class. Her class included ages 18 and under and for a 7 year old to even compete is great but to come out in the top half is AWESOME.
She placed 12th in Ranch Riding, 7th in Ranch Horse Conformation, and 3rd in Boxing. 
Pretty good for a little girl competing against others twice her age and size. 
She also caught the eye of a DFW news station there and was interviewed and featured on their station that evening.
 
Congratulation to Lucinda and  We can’t wait to see all the things this little cowgirl does.

Fillies Win!!!


 
Wednesday night’s game was nothing less than exciting. The Fillies came out
victorious over Kilgore College, 72-68. "I really like how this team
competes each game. These young ladies are really developing a strong
mentality of battling every game.  They are learning how to overcome
adversity every night in the strongest conference in the country," stated
Head Coach Eddie Kite.
 
 
The Fillies played a tight game against the Rangers as they held on until
the very end to keep their lead and finish the game out. The first half was
all Panola as they headed into the locker room up 26-41. The Fillies had
seemed to have the edge up on the Rangers, but Kilgore had not given up
hope.
 
The second half was all Kilgore as they would go and outscore the Fillies
42-31, but it wasn't enough. It would be tied up at 66 with just under one
minute left in the game but a quick drive and kick from Freshman Patience
Okpe to Freshman Daria Eremeeva would put the Fillies back up two. The
Rangers tried to get back but trips to the free throw line kept the Fillies
in the lead and victorious as time expired.
 
Eremeeva lead the Fillies with 15 points on the night and added 5 key
rebounds. Sophomore Charlynn Perry added 14 points to the win, shooting 3-7
from behind the 3 point line.
 
When asked how the Fillies will be doing against the rest of the
conference, Coach Kite added "If they continue to work this hard every
night, this team will be tough to deal with at the conference tournament".
And he's right. With tonight’s win, the Fillies are now 5th in Region XIV
standings. The top 8 teams go to the tournament conference.
 
The next game will be this Saturday at 2:00 pm in A.J. Gymnasium against
BPCC.

SFA Theatre Students, Faculty to Participate in National Ghostlight Project


 
Nacogdoches – The School of Theatre at Stephen F. Austin State University will join hundreds of other theatre communities across the nation – from Broadway to regional theaters to high schools and colleges and community theaters – on Thursday, January 19, by participating in The Ghostlight Project.
 
Inspired by the tradition of leaving a "ghost light" on in a darkened theatre, artists and communities will make or renew a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation and compassion for everyone – regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability, gender identity or sexual orientation, according to information at theghostlightproject.com.
 
Gathering at 5:30 p.m. on and around the veranda of Griffith Fine Arts Building on the SFA campus, participants will join in a collective, simultaneous action, literally and figuratively bringing light to the darkness, according to Dr. Rick Jones, professor of theatre and interim director of the SFA School of Theatre.
 
Jones explains that, “This is about respecting and valuing those who are different from us in terms of demographic profile, but it’s also about extending that same concern for those who disagree with us philosophically or politically.
 
“As theatre people, we understand that you don’t have to be a monarchist to appreciate Racine, or a Communist to appreciate Brecht, or a Hindu to appreciate Kalidasa,” he said. “But sometimes it’s harder to translate that into our everyday lives.”
 
The public, especially but not exclusively members of the arts community, is invited to attend. Attendees should bring a light that can be readily turned on and off – a cell phone flashlight, regular flashlight, glow stick, etc. Promptly at 5:30, all will light their lights together in a show of solidarity, Jones said.
 
As of January 13, 42 states had indicated on the project’s Facebook page that theatre communities within those states had partner groups planning to participate.
 
The national project aims to create brave spaces that will serve as lights in the coming years, and to activate a network of people across the country working to support vulnerable communities.
 
Visit theghostlightproject.com for more information. Locally, contact the School of Theatre at (936) 468-4003.

Apaches Take One From the Fillies


 

What seemed to be a complete chaotic match between two bitter rivals, ended in favor of the Apaches. The Fillies dropped another conference game against Tyler Junior College, 88-85.
 
In the back-and-forth battle between the two, 15 lead changes occurred. Tyler scored the first basket of the game, but Panola quickly answered to tie it up and the rest of the game would continue as so. One team would be up, while the other did all the right things to tie it up or put them in the lead. 
 
In the first quarter, the Lady Apaches took control and finished 15-19. But the second quarter was a different story. The Fillies fought their way back after trading a few buckets and came out on top, to take the half 44-36. 
 
In the start of the 3rd quarter, Tyler brought more intensity and grabbed an offensive rebound to jump start their 15-6 run that put them up by 1 at 50-51. Tyler would take multiple trips to the free throw line for some three point plays that helped them take the lead. The Fillies hadn't given in, as they traded more baskets with Tyler and tied it up at 67 with: 04 seconds left in the quarter. A last second buzzer shot by Tyler's Lakendra Bassett, put them up in the third, 67-70.
 
It was the same battle in the fourth, a nail biter, to say the least. The Fillies took the lead with 4:36 left in the game up 79-77, then again at 83-80. Tyler fought back to make it a 1 point game at 83-82, but a pair of free throws from Freshman Ekaterina Karchevskaya, would put the Fillies back up 3. The free throws would be the Fillies final baskets of the game. Tyler found a way and kept the lead, little by little, with help from the free throw line. The Fillies would get one last shot at the basket but it wouldn't be enough as time expired. 
 
Sophomore Genesis Rivera led the Fillies with her second career double-double on the night with 24 points and 11 rebounds. Freshman Patience Okpe added 10 points, 6 assists and 3 steals to the mix as well. 
 
The Fillies are now 3-4 in conference and 12-5 overall. The next game is at Kilgore College on Wednesday night, January 18th, at 5:30 pm.

LETU SIGNS MOA WITH IOWA STATE AND EASTMAN CHEMICAL


 
 
           (Longview, Texas) - LeTourneau University signed a Memorandum of Agreement Friday for a new public/private/corporate partnership with Iowa State University and Eastman Chemical.
The new agreement will provide a pathway for LETU chemistry students to enter a graduate program at Iowa State to earn a Master of Chemical Engineering degree, while receiving support and mentoring from corporate partner Eastman Chemical in Longview.
            "In this new partnership, qualified undergraduates from LeTourneau University will gain early entry in the Masters of Engineering in Chemical Engineering program at Iowa State University and be able to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with an engineering concentration from LETU and a Master of Chemical Engineering from Iowa State-in only five years," said LETU Dean of Education, Arts and Sciences Dr. Larry Frazier.
 
 
 
Frazier said this program may be the first chemical engineering degree program pathway in East Texas.
            Frazier said the partnership came about after one of the university's professors took students to the Ames Laboratory for research internships.  "The chemical engineering faculty at Iowa State University were so impressed by the high quality of our students, they approached us to create this program that would lead our students to graduate studies at Iowa State," Frazier said.
            LETU President Dr. Dale A. Lunsford said the participation of Eastman Chemical of Longview is an integral part of this new partnership.
"As we developed this partnership, we realized we needed input from industry, so we turned to our friends at Eastman Chemical," Lunsford said. "Their leadership met with our faculty and dean and agreed to join in an advisory and supportive role to help us ensure we are preparing chemical engineers who will flourish in a manufacturing setting. Their partnership will provide our students valuable, real-world insights into a career in chemical engineering. We wanted to ensure that our students are as ready as possible to enter industry."
Eastman Chemical will review curriculum, and provide opportunities for internships and foster connections with Eastman employees to serve as guest lecturers in LETU classes and serve as industry mentors for LETU students.  Eastman will also permit LETU students and faculty to observe training at Eastman, especially in the area of industrial safety.  LETU will connect faculty and student expertise to research projects that are of interest to Eastman.
Lunsford said the new program addresses affordability and accessibility, allowing students to achieve a master's degree in a shorter timeframe than normal - five years instead of six years.  Iowa State is agreeing to accept LETU students to transfer in and reverse-transfer graduate course credits to fulfill undergraduate degree requirements at LeTourneau - providing a type of dual credit for completion of graduate courses to apply toward undergraduate requirements.
"This new program will feature the hallmarks of an LETU education: rigorous academics, hands-on application and a focus on the integration of faith and learning," Lunsford said.  "We see this as a significant value for LeTourneau students."
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, and in hybrid and fully online options at centers in Dallas and Houston.

Late surge pushes Lee past Panola men, 90-81


 

Late surge pushes Lee past Panola men, 90-81
 
 
Baytown, Texas – The Panola College men’s basketball team lost to Lee
College here Saturday evening, 90-81. The loss drops the Ponies record to
12-6 and 4-3 in Region 14 play. “We had opportunities to finish the ball
game.” Stated head coach Grant McMillan. “Their length bothered us at the
end of the game and our turnovers led to too many easy baskets.” He added.
 
 
Panola started strong out of the gate and took a 13 point lead, 27-14. Lee
battled back to take a four point lead 43-39 with just over 4:00 remaining
in the half. A late flurry of baskets gave Panola a 51-45 halftime lead.
Panola maintained a steady lead most of the second half before Lee took a
75-74 lead with 5:51 remaining in the ball game. Both teams went back and
forth before a Lee three point play gave them a 5 point lead, 83-78 and
ultimately the victory.
 
 
Marlon Taylor had his best statistical game of the year netting 25 points
and chasing down 11 rebounds. Devyn Wilson and Tyonte Robertson both added
15 points. Rounding out the double-digit scores was Tope Arikawe with 12
points. KJ Byers had six rebound and four blocks in the loss. As a team,
Panola committed 15 turnovers and only shot 39 percent from the field.
 
 
Panola has the bye next week before they host Navarro College next
Saturday, January 21st. Tip-off is set for 4:00 PM in AJ Gym on the campus
of Panola College.

M.P. Baker Library to Exhibit Once Upon A Playground


 
The classic metal and wood structures that have populated playgrounds for
most of the twentieth century—towering metal slides, giant jungle gyms,
whirling merry-go-rounds, bouncing seesaws—have become beloved artifacts of
childhood. They are part of the personal histories of most Americans over
the age of 30, as well as a tangible piece of the country’s cultural and
industrial design heritage. In celebration of this heritage, *Once Upon a
Playground *opens January 30, 2017 in the Allison Gallery of the M.P. Baker
Library of Panola College.
 
 
 
 
*Once Upon a Playground* offers a visual tribute to these vanishing
playgrounds of our past, celebrating their place in American culture and
the collective memories of generations. Co-curated by Brenda Biondo, author
of *Once Upon a Playground: A Celebration of Classic American Playgrounds,
1920–1975* and Carol Johnson, recently retired curator of photography at
the Library of Congress, the exhibition combines contemporary photographs
of classic equipment, vintage images of playground scenes from the Library
of Congress’ collections, and images from period playground catalogs and
other ephemera. By bringing together these diverse sources, the exhibition
highlights a playground vernacular that developed over decades, while
providing historical context and cultural insight.
 
 
 
Playground equipment often reflected the popular culture of the times, as
geometric metal and wood apparatus of the 1920s and 1930s gradually gave
way to pieces in the shape of cowboys and Indians, storybook characters,
rocket ships and satellites, motorcycles, and geodesic domes.
 
 
 
Unfortunately, as communities have renovated their parks and schoolyards,
classic playground equipment has virtually disappeared from many parts of
the country. Yet these icons of childhood still trigger fond memories for
countless Americans and remain a ubiquitous product of America’s industrial
design heyday.
 
 
 
*Once Upon a Playground* is organized by ExhibitsUSA, a program of
Mid-America Arts Alliance, Kansas City, MO.  This exhibit is free and open
to the public. It will be on display until February 28, 2017. For
additional information please call the library at 903-693-2052 or email
Sherri Baker at sherri.baker@panola.edu.

Tenaha ISD Students Complete Scale Model Project


 
Mrs. Wiist’s 8th grade math classes at Tenaha ISD just finished the first semester with a project-based learning activity.
 
Students used what they’ve learned about scale factor and changes that scale factor has on three dimensional models to create their own 3D scale models.
 
This year’s projects really capture the ingenuity and creativeness of the 8th grade students. Students created a wide assortment of projects that included everything from amazing water towers to zipping space craft.
 
Students learned that the scale factor affects all measurements proportionally. Additionally, they found that the scale factor can be used to cause the dimensions to enlarge or reduce in size. Some students chose to take really large items and use a scale factor between zero and one to create a model that was a reduction of the original item. While other students chose an original item and created scale models that were enlargements by using scale factors that were greater than one.
 
We hope you enjoy seeing some of the fantastic projects created by this year’s Tenaha ISD 8th grade students.

Tenaha ISD Announces Rico as Khan Academy Contest Winner


 
The 8th Grade Math classes proudly announce the winner of our monthly Khan Academy contest. Arturo Rico has won the points competition for the second month in a row! This contest period started on December 7th and ended on January 8th. Congratulations Arturo!
 
Our next monthly contest runs from January 9th to February 8th. Please encourage our 8th graders to earn those points through independent, diagnostically driven math practice on their 8th grade level concepts!
 
To encourage our 8th graders to practice on their own, as they have time available, students are able to build points towards the monthly contest as they work on their mathematics mastery. The highest point winner each month wins a $10.00 WalMart gift card. The point totals are filtered for each month, so previously earned points are not included in the winning tabulation.
 
Tablets are available for student use every morning and Monday-Thursday after school. Additionally, students have access during Tiger Tutorials each school day. Khan Academy can also be accessed from any computer or smart phone off campus!
 
There’s even a Khan Academy app available for tablets and smartphones. If students can manage 30 minutes of Khan Academy practice per day, their math foundational skills will grow considerably.

Fillies Lose


 
The Fillies take their fourth loss of the season on Wednesday night to
Trinity Valley, 81-65.
 
"I think we battled." Stated Head Coach Eddie Kite. "We came in and hung in
there as best as we could, we just made too many little mental mistakes."
 
To kick off the game, the Fillies jumped out on top early with the first
bucket and forced 6 Trinity Valley turnovers in just the first 3 minutes.
After a media timeout, the Lady Cardinals got their groove back and went
head strong to take the first quarter 22-6. That would be one of the
biggest leads of the night. H0wever, in the second quarter, the Fillies
were able to cut the lead to 8 with a 15-7 run sparked by Sophomore Denasia
Watson getting to the free throw line and Sophomore Amanda Cruz
hitting two back-to-back three pointers. Shortly after, Trinity would again come
back and make a big run, ending the half up 42-25.
 
The Fillies were able to outscore their opponent 40-39 in the second half,
but it just was not enough for them to get a victory. Patience Okpe
led the Fillies with 17 points on the night and Sophomore Denasia Watson
added double digits with 10 points. With the loss on the night, the Fillies are now 3-3 in conference and 12-4 overall.
 
The next game will be Saturday, January 14th, as the Fillies host the Lady
Apaches of Tyler Junior College, at 5:30.

Fillies Go 3-0 in the State of Louisiana


he Fillies opened their 2017 year with three away games in Louisiana. First game was against Louisiana College, which the Fillies won 94-49. Thursday night's match up was against Baton Rouge Community College in which the Fillies won 66-39. And on Saturday night, the Fillies went down to LSU-Eunice and took a 92-65 victory over the Bangles.
 
The only time the Fillies were down in the third game was right at tip off with LSU-E, 4-0. But the ladies quickly turned it around and came out with a 22-16 lead after the first quarter. In the second stanza, the Fillies and Bangles battled it out as the Bangles came within 5 before Freshman Victoria Rushing sparked an 11-3 run with a downtown 3 pointer. After 1 half, the ladies entered the locker room up 43-28.
 
The Bangles had not given up just yet. In the third quarter, they got within 6 at 55-49, but turnovers and too many missed opportunities let the Fillies stay on top. They tied the quarter in points scored at 23, but it just wasn't enough. The Fillies came out blasting in the 4th and took home a 92-65 victory, boosting their overall record to 12-3.
 
Freshman Daria Eremeeva led the team shooting 7-8 from the field and 3-4 from the free throw line, giving her a new career high of 17 points. She also added 7 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 assists, and 1 steal on the night. Freshman Patience Okpe added 15 points, Sophomore Charlynn Perry added 14 points, and Freshman Stefany Lourenco added 10 points. All Fillies who participated on the night were able to score a least one basket to contribute to the win.
 
The Fillies return to play on Wednesday January 11th in conference play at Trinity Valley. Trinity Valley currently holds a record for 85 straight home victories in their gymnasium. The Fillies are looking to break the streak.
