Panola upended by Blinn on buzzer beater


 

 

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

Timpson Bear Update


 

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

Panola College, Sam Houston sign articulation agreement


 

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

Panola to graduate 11 nurses in Center


 

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

Dear Service Member,
I would like to wish you happy holidays! Thank you for defending our country. I pray that you will be safe and succeed in your mission. I understand that war is a scary thing, so I also pray that God will be with you and that you know that you are being protected. I hope that you will come home to family and friends unharmed and maybe even in time for the holidays. Again, thank you for your service. We are all praying for you.
 
2nd place-Jaycee Campbell
 
Dear Service Member,
Just saying “thank you” isn’t enough for your sacrifice and dedication. So I’m sending prayers, hugs and well wishes to you for the holidays. Your bravery and service is more than we can ask for. Words can’t explain how important your service is to our country. We are praying that God watches over you and your family. Our nation is honored to have you serving and we want you to know that we love you!
 
3rd place-Madenline Binning
 
Dear Service Members,
I would like to take the time to say thank you for your courage and dedication to our country. I am happy to say that in this card you will find my love and gratitude for the holiday season. I hope you all get to find your way home to be with friends and family. Know that we love you and there is not a day that goes by that you are not in our hearts. I am so grateful for the sacrifice that you give for me. May God bless you, keep you safe, and bring you lots of joy. Most importantly, let him bring you home for the laughter this holiday season will bring.

Panola Rodeo Update


 

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

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

sharp, and we played with a purpose.” He added.
 
 
Despite On Point knocking down 9 three-pointers in the first half, Panola
took a 52-39 halftime lead. Juwan Williams came out on fire in the second

Joaquin Book Drive Thank You Letter


 

I would like to thank the Joaquin community for their support of the book drive that was held for the “Adopt a Classroom” program that I participated in with Klein High School. The book drive was a huge success; we collected hundreds of books and $400 to help Mrs. Lori Favela’s 9th grade English class. Mrs. Favela and her teaching partners will keep the books in their classrooms to build their own library for easy student access and will use the money to help many of their students who have lost everything.
 
 
It was such a blessing to be able to represent our Joaquin community. Mrs. Favela wanted everyone who contributed to know how thankful she and her students were for our donation. After meeting Mrs. Favela, I know the books and money will be put to good use.

Panola College theater students excel at festival


 

 
Six Panola College theater students won awards at the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF) at Angelo State University on Oct. 27. These include Allyssa Woods and Maelbi Caeldron, both for Meritorious Achievement in dramaturgy; and Lacie Sepulvado for Meritorious Achievement in Costume Design.
 
Three actors won the Irene Ryan Acting Award: Nathaniel Endsley, Sarah Funderburk and Katt Smith.  “Only six Meritorious Achievement awards were given at the State Festival, and Panola College students garnered three of them,” said Karen King, Panola College Drama Professor.
 
The Panola cast and crew presented “Flyer,” a play written by Kate Aspengren. The story is based on the Mercury 13 women who passed the physical examinations developed for NASA’s astronaut selection process. The majority of the action takes place in the early 1960’s in and around the Lovelace Foundation in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Lovelace’s Woman in Space Program was a short-lived, privately funded project testing women pilots for astronaut fitness in the early 1960’s. Although nothing concrete resulted, the women who participated have since been recognized as trailblazers, whose ambitions to fly the newest and the fastest craft led them to be among the first American women to gain access to sophisticated aerospace medical tests.
 
The Kennedy Center American College Theater is a national theater program involving 18,000 students from colleges and universities nationwide. The KCACTF has grown into a network of more than 600 academic institutions throughout the country, where theater departments and student artists showcase their work and receive outside assessment by KCACTF respondents.
 
Cast included Sarah Funderburk, Katt Smith, Zach Holmes, Jasmine Ryan, Nathaniel Endsley, Yancy Flores, Tailer Chong, Ashlynn Stamps, Julian Johnson, Kayla Brimer, Emmalee Tomaszewski, Jessica Bailey, Edward McMillian, Kayla Featherston, Quay Rice, Joseph Allred, Big Mak Lindsey, Angel Hubble and Dustin Bennett.
Crew included Allyssa Woods, Maelbi Calderon, Big Mak Lindsey, Kassandra Escobar, Enoiola Sogsbean, Kacie Sepulvado, Lacie Sepulvado, Julia Prewitt, Brandon Castillo, KeKe Woodson, Glitch Smith, Christina Patterson, Kennedy Udumukwu, Leonard Maxwell, and Katy Chance.

12th ranked Panola men go 1-1 in MSS East/West Challenge


 

Lewisville, Texas – The Panola College men split this weekend in the
Midwest Scouting Service East/West Challenge held at Lewisville High
School. In game one, Panola upended Clarendon College 90-79 and lost to
seventh ranked Odessa College 70-84 in the second game. Both Clarendon and
Odessa compete in Region V.
 
 
“It was a great honor to be invited to the East/West Challenge” Head Coach
Grant McMillan Stated. “We played two high end opponents this weekend. I
was so proud of the way we prepared and came out against a Clarendon team
who beat a ranked San Jac team the night before. Against Odessa we just
weren’t disciplined enough but it’s why we played these hard games early in
the year.” He added.
 
 
In the first half against Clarendon, Panola found themselves down by as
much as 12 points before evening the score at 40 before intermission. The
Ponies took control in the second half by going on a 26-9 run to give them
a 17 point lead midway through the half and eventually the 11 point victory.
 
 
Four Ponies scored in double figures and were led by Marlon Taylor with 19
points and 13 rebounds. Juwan Williams netted 17, while Jeremy Roscoe and
TJ Killings recorded 16 and 14 points, respectively. Shandon Goldman almost
recorded a double-double tallying 9 points and chasing down 11 rebounds.
 
 
In the second game, Odessa and Panola battled back and forth the entire
first half before Odessa took a 10 point lead into the locker room. Panola
cut the lead to four, 58-54 with 13:39 remaining in the second half but
couldn’t get any closer. Odessa’s lead stayed in the single-digits most of
the second half but some untimely turnovers and missed layups prevented any
comeback efforts.
 
 
Jeremy Roscoe scored a game high 21 points in the loss while Marlon Taylor
recorded another double-double.
 
 
Panola’s record is 1-1 after the opening weekend challenge. They host
LSU-Alexandria JV this upcoming Thursday, November 9th for their home
opener. Tip-off is set up for 7:00 PM in AJ Gym on the campus of Panola

Panola Rodeo Update


 

Panola College rodeo team traveled to Lake Charles, La. on the 27th and the 28th for the McNeese State University rodeo. The rodeo was very exciting to say the least.
 
The bull riding was taken over by two Panola bull riders, Koby Radley and Boudreaux Campbell, both are freshman at Panola College and both are at the top of the leader board in the Southern Region Standings. Koby started the action off with a 79 point bull ride and a 1st place finish. Boudreaux followed up his team mate with a 74 point ride and a 3rd place finish. The young bull riders move to number 1 and 2 in the standings, with Boudreaux number 1 with 466 points and Koby number 2 with 416 points.  The top 3 point leaders in the region will advance on to the CNFR in June; both bull riders will be expected to advance to the college finals. 
 
Bareback rider, Travis Chapman, continued to fight for his spot at the top of the field scoring 76 points for a 2nd place finish. Travis, a sophomore from Woodville, has had a very good season placing in his event at all four Southern Region Rodeos. Travis not only helped his team to the victory but also helped himself to the number 2 spot in the Regional Standings, with a total of 418.50 points. Chapman is expected to be a strong contender for regional and national titles.
Logan Cook was back to his winning ways this weekend in the calf roping. Cook tied down his calf in 9.3 seconds, and secured a 3rd place finish. Logan’s weekend helped push him to the number 1 position in the Southern Region All around Standings. To be qualified as an all-around competitor a cowboy or cowgirl must enter 2 or more events. Logan enters the Calf roping, Saddle Bronco riding, and the Team roping at all the college rodeos. Logan is now setting number 2 in the Saddle Bronco’s, number 3 in the Calf roping, and has no sign of letting up there. “I think Logan has the potential to be a National Champion in all of his events, he is a fierce competitor and one of the best cowboys I have had the pleasure to know, let alone coach. Logan will without any doubt in my mind continue to be a leader for this team and continue to be very successful in the arena.” said Jeffrey Collins, Panola College Rodeo Coach. 
 
Tyler Johnson also continues to impress his peers in the Bareback Riding, Tyler scored a 70 points this weekend and finished 6th. Tyler, a freshman from Athens, is now setting in the number 4 position in the Southern Regional Standings. “Tyler is a very hard working and dedicated young man; he is someone I can count on to do all the little things it takes to win, be in great shape mentally and physically, shows up and gets the job done. It is great to have such a young athlete show such leadership that Tyler is giving us” said Coach Collins.
 
Panola College Ponies men’s team won 1st place this weekend due to these individuals’ efforts. Panola continues to hold on to the number 1 spot in the Southern Region. The rodeo team has the last rodeo of the fall season scheduled for November 10th and 11th, in Conroe, hosted by SAMSU.

On Wednesday, October 22nd, three Joaquin High School Majorettes competed in the UIL Regional Solo and Ensemble Twirling Contest held at Lufkin High School. Junior Head Majorette Michalla Byrd, Junior Arianna Rogers, and Freshman Sarah Ewing performed a trio routine, for which they received a 2nd division rating. The three young ladies each performed a solo routine as well, with all three receiving a 1st division rating. The 1st division rating qualifies each majorette for the State Solo and Ensemble Contest to be held in Austin in the spring. Majorette Sponsor Amber Graves was excited to learn the results. "These girls have worked so hard to prepare for this contest! They've had to put in extra practice to learn these routines, in addition to all of the work they do to get ready for performances at pep rallies and football games on Friday.I'm looking forward to taking them to the state competition in May." Eighth grade Majorettes Avery Prnka, Lauren Neal, and Hannah Holt also made the trip to support their fellow Majorettes.
