Xi Alpha Delta Rho donates to CISD Care Closets


 

 

 

 

The Xi Alpha Delta Rho chapter of Beta Sigma Phi was pleased to be able to help the Care Closets that were recently started at CMS and CHS. The group collected toiletry items for both campuses, to provide care to any student in need.

 

 

 

The Care Closets were started at these two campuses to fill a need for CISD students.  Basic necessities are not always easy to come by, even for older kids. The Care Closet is a way to meet those needs and to let the students know that the school staff is here to help them however they can.  

 

Donations are appreciated!  Please contact Ashley Wulf at Center High School, if you would like to donate.

SFA's Early Childhood Research Center to hold 10th anniversary celebration, flagpole dedication


 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Stephen F. Austin State University’s Janice A. Pattillo Early Childhood Research Center will hold its 10th anniversary celebration at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, in front of the ECRC, located at 2428 Raguet St. in Nacogdoches. The dedication of the Baker Pattillo Memorial Flagpole will be included in the celebration.

 

The ECRC opened its doors July 19, 2009, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, children’s singing performances and public tours. Ten years later, guests at the anniversary celebration will be treated to cake, cookies and beverages, as members of the Lumberjack Marching Band, Spirit Teams and choir perform. The event is free, and the public is invited.

 

“Throughout its decade of existence, the ECRC’s faculty and staff members have worked to improve the quality of life for children and families in East Texas by integrating teaching, research and dissemination of information,” said Lori Harkness, director of the Early Childhood Lab and campus coordinator for the charter school.

 

The facility is named in honor of Dr. Janice A. Pattillo, who retired from SFA in 2011 as a professor and chair of the Department of Elementary Education, after serving 42 years at the university. She is the wife of Dr. Baker Pattillo, who served as the university’s president from 2006 until his death Dec. 29, 2018.

 

The $30.8 million, 120,000-square-foot center houses the nationally accredited Early Childhood Laboratory and the SFA Charter School, where approximately 230 children, ranging from infants to fifth grade, are enrolled in education programs. Each fall and spring semester, more than 430 SFA students use the lab and charter school for observation, participation and other education purposes as they prepare to enter the workforce as teachers.

 

“Almost a century ago, SFA began as a teachers college,” Harkness said. “The research center has helped us build on SFA’s strong tradition of teacher preparation while expanding its research capacity. We are blessed to have this facility in Nacogdoches. It offers outstanding opportunities for SFA students to work firsthand with children, and it provides a place where families can bring their children to learn and grow.”

 

The dedication of the Baker Pattillo Memorial Flagpole will take place toward the beginning of the anniversary celebration, with SFA’s ROTC members presenting the colors and Harkness dedicating the flagpole in Pattillo’s honor. Afterward, attendees will join under the alumni association tent, located at the corner of Raguet and Hayter streets, for refreshments.

 

For more information about the event or charter school, contact Harkness at (936) 468-4006.

SFA Hosts Little STEM Jacks


NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Area elementary students explored fire trucks and ambulances, interacted with snakes and tarantulas, and built gliders out of straws and notecards during Stephen F. Austin State University’s Little STEM Jacks.

 

Hosted by the STEM Research and Learning Center, the program provided an immersive learning experience for students entering kindergarten through fifth grade. Students rotated between classrooms, learning physics, biology and nursing concepts.

 

“With its hands-on learning approach, each student who attends Little STEM Jacks is able to interact with STEM professionals to learn more about different disciplines within STEM and potential career options,” said Adrienne Aul, STEM Research and Learning Center programs coordinator.

 

Suddenlink by Altice is the official partner of Little STEM Jacks.

 

“I am so thankful Suddenlink was able to play a small role in helping students experience the incredible STEM opportunities at SFA,” said Curt Allison, community specialist with Suddenlink. “It was really exciting to see the young students excited about STEM.”

Shelby County Historical Society Monthly Meeting


 

 

The Shelby County Historical Society will hold its monthly meeting September 17, 2019 at 2:00 P.M. in the Shelby County Museum on Pecan Street. Our guest speaker this month will be Dr. Jodi Edward Ginn.  The topic will be "East Texas Troubles: The Allred Rangers' Cleanup of San Augustine."  

 

This is the story of a rural community's extrication from the grip of a vicious criminal gang who built their power by exploiting institutionally marginalized African Americans.  

 

In telling this story, Dr. Ginn reveals a multifaceted history of the reform of the Texas Rangers, and of an unexpected alliance between the legendary frontier lawman and black residents of the Jim Crow South.  Dr. Ginn will also be holding a book signing while he is here.  The public is invited to attend our meetings.  

 

Also, if you are interested in the History of our State and Area, we invite you to come join our organization and help us get the word out about all the fascinating history that surrounds us all.
