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.

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.

Kambli will discuss her digital photography at 4:30 p.m. in the Music Recital Hall in the Wright Music Building on the SFA campus. 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!

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Bond Construction Begins at Center Elementary


 


Construction at Center Elementary School has begun following a 30 million dollar bond passed in May. 


The project consists of nearly doubling the available parking and increasing the number of places where students are picked up and dropped off. 

 

For the Flyer with More Information Click Here:


“[Parents] will sometimes wait 30 minutes in line to pick up their kids in the afternoon,” Elementary Principal Shelly Norvell said. “On parent nights, there is no parking, and parents are parking down Roughrider Drive as far as Walmart and walking.”


The project, the first of seven phases of construction across the district, will be finished by Christmas of this year. Covered walkways will be added to the bus loading area and an additional entrance and student pick-up location will be added to the side of the school facing Roughrider Drive.


“Traffic will enter in the same place as we now do. Students will load in front of the school, as we do now; however, we will also load in front of the [new] wing to the left,” Assistant Principal Lana Whitworth said. “As students' names are called, a person will send them to the appropriate station where they will be picked up.”


The pick-up area currently has 5 stations in front of the school.  


“The [new] drive that will extend further around the building will provide several more stations for us to load students,” Whitworth said. “The line will not extend as far into the road as it does now and we will be able to load twice as many students at a time.  All traffic will exit on the left [of the provided blueprint] after their student is loaded.”  


Throughout the construction, parents should expect delays and plan accordingly. 


“It’s going to make things so much better on Roughrider Drive,” CISD Police Chief Pete Low said. “It will get cars off the street.”

Freshman MiKayla Ware had a career night and led all hitters with 18 kills on an impressive .421 hitting efficiency, while the combination of Alyssa Lozoya and Thaynara Godoi picked up 8 kills each followed by Rebecca Rabius adding 7. Bri McGown and Molly Harris dished out 20 assists apiece. Ware sealed up her highlight performance racking up 27 digs with Hannah Floyd adding 19 of her own. At the net, Godoi and Riley Seegers led with 4 block assists each.

 

With the loss, Panola finished Region XIV zone play 2-4 and will be the 4th place seed from the north in the Region XIV tournament. 

 

In their annual Dig Pink match Saturday, the Fillies swept Brookhaven College (25-8, 25-17, 25-16). Offensively, Ware led again with 9 kills, followed by Carol Santana with 6, and Godoi with 5. McGown dished out 16 assists with Harris adding 12. Daphinie Correa led at the net with 2 block assists and 1 solo, and Hannah Floyd led the floor defense with 22 digs. Ware added 9 digs and Harris 8 in the win. 

 

The Fillies will use next weekend as one final tune-up before the Region XIV Tournament, taking on Temple College and Blinn College Saturday, October 27th, in AJ Gym at noon and 4 pm.

CISD Red Ribbon Week Campus Themes for Oct 22-26


 

 

Center ISD will participate in the 2018 National Red Ribbon Campaign from October 22-26. 

History

 

"The National Family Partnership [NFP] provides drug awareness by sponsoring the annual National Red Ribbon Campaign. Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction cause by drugs in America. In 1988, NFP sponsored the first National Red Ribbon Celebration. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities." (redribbon.org)

Panola offers to print on the cloud


 

 

WEPA (WE Print Anywhere) print is now available at Panola College.  WEPA print allows students to send documents from their laptops and other devices to the cloud-based printing service.  There is no need to wait for the library to open to be able to print anymore. Students can send documents before they leave home and simply print when they arrive on campus.  This allows students to send documents to the cloud at any time that is convenient to them and print on demand at the kiosks.

 

By creating an account, students may add $5.00 or more online from any debit or credit card, a pre-paid WEPA print card (sold in the library), or PayPal. Students do not have to create an account. They can also swipe a credit or debit card or purchase a pre-paid print card from the M.P. Baker Library to use directly at any kiosks. The kiosks are located in three places on campus:

·         The M.P. Baker Library (second floor). This station also has a scanner for copying.

·         The Charles C. Matthews Foundation Student Center (first floor by the cafeteria door).

·         The Health and Natural Sciences Building (first floor in the hallway behind Dean Reed-Hirsch’s office, near OT area).

 

If a student leaves Panola and still has funds on their WEPA account, the funds will be returned to the student if they wish. If the student transfers to another school using WEPA, they can continue to use their existing funds on their account at that institution.

 

The prices are: Single-sided black & white – $.09, Two-sided black & white – $.17, Single-sided color – $.25, Two-sided color – $.47.

 

Students who have already utilized this new printing capability had some great comments. One student said, “The WEPA printing machine is a very good idea!”

Another student claimed, “The new printer is great. WE LOVE IT!”

 

One student’s comment was echoed throughout the student body, “PLEASE KEEP THIS!”

Panola College is excited to continually offer the latest technology to students to improve their college experience and help them be successful in their courses.

 

Community members are also welcome to use the printers, but it is encouraged that they use a print card or set up an account because the kiosk charges a $.49 cent fee for not making a $5.00 purchase if a credit or debit card is used.

 

For more information about printing, you can go to www.wepanow.com or email library@panola.edu.

Panola College employees find their spirit of giving


 

 

 

 

Spirit poses with Library Director, Cristie Ferguson during his introduction at the faculty and staff convocation.

 

Spirit, Panola College’s pint-size pony, has been traveling all over campus to bring awareness to Panola’s 2018 employee campaign, Searching for Spirit. Spirit helped the employees find their spirit of giving by visiting different departments, classrooms, and even making appearances out in the community. Spirit’s various adventures could be found on the College’s social media sites each day.

 

 

 

Students in the occupational therapy assistant program showed Spirit around their lab.

 

 

Each year, Panola College employees participate in a campaign during the first six weeks of the fall semester to help raise funds for student scholarships, athletics, fine arts, the Panola College Foundation, and any other program at the College that is important to them. The Employee Campaign began four years ago and has continued to grow each year.

 

“The employee campaign reminds us to give back. It’s fun, and it’s what we are supposed to do,” says Don Clinton, Vice President of Student Services. “We put a lot of time, effort, and money into all of our hobbies, our churches, our families, and we should do the same with our job to make it a better working environment and to help others. It’s what it is all about.”

 

This year the Panola College employee campaign raised over $19,000 in just a little over a month. Employees designated the largest portion to the Panola College Foundation, followed closely by a scholarship fund created specifically by the faculty and staff at the College to support students financially. Academic programs, fine arts, and athletic teams also received donations during the campaign.

 

 

 

Spirit enjoyed lunch at Panola College Café with Professor Brian Naples.

 

 

While the amount the employees raised is impressive and generous, it is not the what Panola College considers the biggest triumph of the campaign. Jessica Pace, Director of Institutional Advancement, says it is really the percentage of participation in the campaign that shows real success.

 

 “The percentage of participation is what we believe makes the largest statement. The number of participants we have in the employee campaign shows that the employees at the College truly care about the students that attend Panola and want to see students reach their goals. Employees want to see each student succeed, so giving back to support them seems fitting.”

Panola College’s 2018 employee campaign boasted a 67% participation rate, up from 60% in 2017. To make the campaign a little more exciting, each year the executive council at Panola College challenges employees to reach a certain goal. This campaign the goal was set at a 65% participation rate. Employees not only reached the goal but surpassed it. As a thank you and in the spirit of service, the executive council helped serve lunch at the annual Fall Frolic for the students, faculty, and staff.

 

“The employee campaign creates an atmosphere of giving, and it creates this atmosphere in a fun and exciting way,” said Sarah Bush, mathematics professor. “You want to give out of compassion. You feel a need and you want to meet that need. Sometimes you have to give because of that spirit that is in you to give.”

 

Reanna Hart, Panola College recruiter, shared her opinion about why she participated each year in the employee campaign.

 

“It’s kind of fun and competitive in one sense, but you also get to see what your giving does for other people. You get to see students when they come to Panola, and you get to see how the money is used so they can take classes and continue their education. These students may not have been able to complete those classes if the employees at Panola didn’t give.”

 

The employee campaign may only take place a few weeks out of the year, but the spirit of giving can be found daily at Panola College.

 

 

 

Dr. Greg Powell serves lunch to Professor Jennifer Coon at the annual Fall Frolic to show his appreciation to the faculty and staff for their participation in the employee campaign.

 

 

 

“I see examples of the spirit of giving all around campus. Whether it is the millions of dollars given to scholarships, Charles C. Matthews Foundation Student Center, the clock tower, the Spirit of Panola fountain, it can be seen everywhere,” says Greg Powell, President of Panola College. “The employee campaign is a great opportunity for the faculty and staff to give back to areas that are most important to them, and it demonstrates the family atmosphere that can be readily found at Panola College.”

Flu Shot Information


 

 

Aurora Concepts will be holding their annual Flu Shot Clinic for the entire District on Wednesday, October 24, 2018. They will be starting at F.L. Moffett at 8:15 a.m., and then proceeding to the other campuses in the District.

 

You do not have to be present when your child receives his/her immunization, but students WILL NOT be able to receive any immunizations without prior written consent from his/her parent/guardian. The consent form is attached.

 

If you are unsure if your child returned his/her consent form please contact the school nurse or print and fill out the attached document.  It is important that the insurance section of the consent form be filled out in its entirety.

        

If applicable, and you wish for your child to participate in the school immunization clinic, you can either file on insurance OR, if your child does not have insurance, pay $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.

 

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.

I really believe in the girls too, they have came a very long way to just stop at regionals. I believe they can go beyond and make it to state also.”

 

     Varsity girls also placed second with a total of 69 points. Senior Daniela Medina placed 10th (14.13), Junior Jessica Alvarado placed 11th (14.19) Freshman Gracie Whisenant placed 15th (14.48), Sophomore Ally Jones placed 16th (15.01),  Junior Angela Morales placed 17th (15.05), Senior Valerie Ramirez placed 26th (16.44), Senior Cheyenne Byrnes placed 30th (17.39).

Timpson Bear Update


 

 

 

 

Fire Prevention Week - Since 1922, the National Fire Protection Association has sponsored the public observance of Fire Prevention Week. In 1925, President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed Fire Prevention Week a national observance, making it the longest-running public health observance in our country. During Fire Prevention Week, children, adults, and teachers learn how to stay safe in case of a fire. Firefighters provide lifesaving public education in an effort to drastically decrease casualties caused by fires.

 

Fire Prevention Week is observed each year during the week of October 9th in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and caused devastating damage. This horrific conflagration killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures, and burned more than 2,000 acres of land.

2018 Fire Prevention Week Campaign

 

This year’s FPW campaign, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” works to educate people about three basic but essential steps to take to reduce the likelihood of having a fire––and how to escape safely in the event of one:

 

LOOK
Look for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.

 

LISTEN
Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.

 

LEARN
Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.

 

 

 

 

 

Members of the Timpson Volunteer Fire Department joined our students on Monday for breakfast. Then the firemen showed students around the firetruck and described some of the tools that are utilized while fighting fires. Later, members of the Forest Service joined the group, along with surprise guest, SMOKEY THE BEAR!! Thanks to the Timpson Volunteer Fire Department, the Forest Service and our special friend Smokey for the visit!

Fillies Dominate Home Tri-Match


 

 

Panola College Volleyball hosted Cedar Valley College and Wharton County Junior College Saturday, finishing with a sweep of both opponents.

 

In their first match of the day, Panola took down Cedar Valley (25-13, 25-16, 25-20) with one of their most efficient hitting performances of the season at .343. Freshman MiKayla Ware led the offense with 9 kills on .471 hitting, Alyssa Lozoya pounded out 8 kills, and Sabrina de Lima added 7 of her own. Molly Harris dished out 22 assists with Bri McGown adding 17. Defensively, freshman Hannah Floyd led with 15 digs, Ware added 8, and Harris chipped in 7.

 

Panola picked up the victory over Wharton County (25-17, 25-19, 25-15) capitalizing on a balanced attack that boasted 6 Fillies with 6 or more kills. Thaynara Godoi and MiKayla Ware led with 8 kills each, the trio of Daphinie Correa, Alyssa Lozoya, and Rebecca Rabius added 7 apiece, and Sabrina de Lima chipped in 6. Molly Harris dished out 19 assists with 5 digs while Bri McGown added 17 assists with 8 digs. Ware was a stud defensively as well, leading with 14 digs followed by 11 from Hannah Floyd.  

 

Head Coach Amber McCray  is pleased with both the balance and growth the Fillies showed this weekend . 

 

"Both opponents made huge defensive plays on some of our biggest swings that would have been major momentum killers for us in the past," she commented. "But this time we countered with several big plays of our own and then fed off of that to seal the wins."

 

Panola is now 18-4 and will return to action in Region XIV zone play Wednesday when they travel to #13 Tyler Junior College.

Fillies Take Down #6 TVCC on the Road


 

 

 

 

 

With aggressive serving and a balanced attack, the 16th-ranked Panola College Fillies defeated #6 Trinity Valley Wednesday night in Athens in 4 sets (17-25, 25-22, 25-20, 25-19).

 

Sophomore Daphinie Correa was a force offensively with 12 kills hitting .526. The trio of Sabrina de Lima, Rebecca Rabius, and MiKayla Ware added 8 kills apiece, with Alyssa Lozoya adding 6 of her own. Sophomore setter Molly Harris dished out 20 assists and freshman Bri McGown added 16 assists with 9 digs.

 

Ware also came up big defensively for the Fillies by notching 15 digs, and Hannah Ramirez picked up 14 digs in the win. 

 

"Just as expected, Region XIV North has been another tight battle of four very talented teams so far," Head Coach Amber McCray said. "This was a critical road victory to put us back in the hunt, and we know we can compete when we show the balance that we did this match." 

Panola is now 16-4 overall and 2-2 in Region XIV zone play. They will return to action Saturday in a home tri-match against Cedar Valley College at 12 pm and Region XIV south opponent Wharton County CC at 4 pm.

Panola Rodeo Update


 

 

 

 

The Panola College Rodeo Team was back in action September 28th and 29th at Bar None Cowboy Church in Tatum, Texas. The Ponies and Fillies had a great rodeo and we want to thank everyone that came out to watch. Here are some of the athletes who represented Panola well.

           

Travis Chapman, sophomore from Woodville, Texas, cleaned up in the bareback riding with an 83-point ride. Travis is a young man who finished fourth in the Nation in the 2017 NIRA standings. Chapman has big goals to return to the CNFR this season and bring home a gold buckle. Coach Collins says, “Travis is a scrappy young man, very athletic, and has lots of will power to win. I will expect him to be a team leader and carry a heavy load for this team this season.”

           

Ross Freeman, Bull Rider from Kountze, Texas, made a great ride for 81 points and a second place finish. Ross went to a lot of rodeos this Summer and has matured into a very physical and mental athlete. “Ross is going to be a great asset to our team and is definitely going to be someone for us to watch in the future of Pro Rodeo,” says Coach Collins.

 

Seth Rustin, freshman criminal justice major, won 3rd place in the Bull Riding event with a 76-point ride. Seth has been riding well in practice and working on little things to help make his rides way more successful. Seth is eager to work and takes care of business well, be looking for his name a lot here this season.

 

Maison Davis, freshman from Kilgore, Texas placed 5th in the barrel racing event with a 17.280. Maison is a three event cowgirl with a hard driven determination, great attitude, and a burning desire to win. Maison’s other two events breakaway and goat tying will be something to be watching for in the future.

 

Jackson Williams, Steer Wrestler from Greenbrier, Arkansas, laid his steer down in 6.8 seconds for a sixth place finish. The cattle were big and rank and Williams weighing in at 145 seemed to be a David and Goliath match up. Jackson was up for the task and will be at the upcoming rodeos as well.

 

Campbell Grover, sophomore from Purvis, Mississippi ran the clover leaf pattern in 17.320 seconds for an 8th place finish. Her and her horse P have been working hard and beginning to reap the rewards of their labor. P is just a five-year-old that Campbell started in the barrel racing event last year, P really blew up and grew some over the Summer making her a top horse in the Southern Region.

 

Macon Murphy, freshman from Kechi, Louisiana, teamed up with his heeler, Logan Fontenot to tie one up in 7.4 seconds for an 8th place finish. Macon is a two event hand working both the Calf Roping and Team Roping events equally as well. Coach Collins says, “Macon has a great attitude, he loves the sport, and works relentlessly to achieve his goals. This kid’s future is very big and bright in the sport of rodeo.”

 

Panola College Ponies Men’s Team ended up with a 4th place finish while the Fillies ended up with a 7th place finish.

 

Panola College Rodeo Team will travel to Uvalde, Texas October 5th and 6th for the second NIRA Southern Region Rodeo.
