M.P. Baker Library to host Through These Eyes of Mine


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The M.P. Baker Library at Panola College will host an exhibit by local
artist, Katy Chance. The exhibit titled, “Through These Eyes of Mine” will
be displayed in the Fay Allison Gallery from January 8, 2018 through
February 23, 2018. In addition, an opening reception will be held Thursday,
January 18, 2018 at 3pm in the M.P. Baker Library foyer.
 
Katy Chance is the Residence Life Coordinator/Head Residence Hall
Supervisor at Panola College.  Chance earned an associate degree from
Panola College and her BFA at Northwestern State University.
 
“People say that art is an expression of one’s self, a way to relate to the
masses, that we reveal a piece of ourselves without realizing it. I believe
that we wake up new every day. I will never paint with the same hands as I
did the day before,” stated Katy Chance, when asked about her artwork. “All
I can do is hope that I have done more with this God given gift than paint
a pretty picture or create an object that might sell.”
 
The exhibit is free and open to the public during the Library’s operating
hours: Monday – Thursday
 
7:30 am - 9:00 pm, Friday 7:30 am – 12:30 pm, and Sunday 4:00 – 9:00 pm.

Panola College singers perform in Dallas


 

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

Panola men overwhelm Coastal Bend, 97-68


 

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

SFA Receives Awards


 

 

 

 

 

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

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


 

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