SFA's August, December commencements to feature additional ceremonies


 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — One extra ceremony will be added to both the August and December commencements at Stephen F. Austin State University as a result of the long-anticipated expansion of Johnson Coliseum, which began earlier this summer.

 

While August candidates typically participate in one ceremony at 9:30 a.m., this summer’s candidates will participate at either 9:30 a.m. or 2 p.m. Aug. 17.

 

Seating at the coliseum, which has capacity for 7,200 guests, will be temporarily reduced due to construction.

 

“More than 1,000 guest seats will be temporarily inaccessible due to our coliseum expansion and renovation project,” said Dr. Steve Westbrook, interim SFA president. “In the interest of safety for our faculty, staff, our graduates and their guests, we have made the decision to divide the ceremonies.”

 

For the August ceremony, candidates from SFA's James I. Perkins College of Education and the College of Fine Arts will participate in the 9:30 a.m. ceremony. Candidates from the Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture, the Rusche College of Business, the College of Liberal and Applied Arts, and the College of Sciences and Mathematics will participate in a 2 p.m. ceremony.

 

The December commencement has been divided from two ceremonies into three and will now take place over two days.

 

The first ceremony will host candidates from the College of Education at 6 p.m. Dec. 13. The second and third ceremonies will take place Dec. 14. College of Business and College of Liberal and Applied Arts candidates will participate in a 9:30 a.m. ceremony while candidates from the College of Fine Arts, the College of Forestry and Agriculture, and the College of Sciences and Mathematics will walk in a 2 p.m. ceremony.

 

A basketball practice and performance center is being constructed near the northeast corner of Johnson Coliseum, with a tunnel connecting the new facility to the current building.

 

All ceremonies will be streamed on the SFA Facebook page, facebook.com/sfasu. For more information about the events, visit sfasu.edu/registrar/455.asp.

LETU to offer 3D printing workshop for the public


 

 

                       

(Longview, Texas) – LeTourneau University School of Engineering and Engineering Technology is offering a 3D printing workshop for those interested in building and owning their own 3D printer to build three-dimensional objects from a computer-aided design model. 

 

The 3-day workshop is fashioned after LETU freshman engineering classes that teach students to understand, build and operate 3D printers.  The workshop cost is $500 per printer, which includes participants walking away with a self-built 3D printer under expert tutoring by LETU engineering faculty.  Groups can register together to build a 3D printer to share. The dates of the workshop are from 4 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 1, and Friday, Aug. 2, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 3.

 

“A 3D printer adds material layer by layer by moving in the x-y-z directions to build three-dimensional objects that could include toys, model parts, or a host of other useful items,” said Dr. Shelli Starrett, LETU engineering professor and organizer of the workshop. “Your imagination is your limit when it comes to building things with a 3D printer.”

 

Anyone interested in the workshop can contact Starrett at ShelliStarrett@letu.edu or by calling the LETU School of Engineering at (903) 233-3910.

 

A group of people on a court

 

Description automatically generatedIn April of 2014, LeTourneau University engineering students set a world record and were featured in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most individual 3D printers operating simultaneously. 

 

 In January of 2015, one LETU student presented a three-foot long, 1:176 scale 3D printed model of the Atlantic Mercy hospital ship to Mercy Ships, a nonprofit humanitarian organization founded in 1978 that provides free, world-class healthcare services to people in the developing world.

 

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, hybrid options at centers in the Dallas and Houston areas and fully online programs. For additional information, visit www.letu.edu.

Head out to the wild horse and burro event in Center, Texas


 

 

NORMAN, Okla.—The Bureau of Land Management will hold a wild horse and burro event in Center, TX, on July 12-13, at the Shelby County Expo Center. The two-day event, featuring 75 wild horses and burros, will begin at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 12. Adoptions will be held from noon-6 p.m. on Friday, July 13, and from 8 a.m.-noon on Saturday, July 12. Animals are eligible for direct purchase to a good home or for adoption. Inquire with BLM staff onsite for more information.  

 

 

As part of our efforts to find every horse and burro a good home, the BLM now offers up to $1,000 to adopt an untrained animal. This adoption incentive will be offered for every animal in Center.   


The animals offered at the event are adult and yearling horses and burros that once roamed free on public lands in the West. The BLM periodically removes excess animals from the range in order to maintain healthy herds and to protect other rangeland resources. The adoption and sale program is essential for achieving these important management goals. Since 1973, the BLM has placed more than 235,000 of these animals in approved homes across the country. 

 

 

BLM staff will approve applications onsite. To qualify to adopt or buy, one must be at least 18 years old, with no record of animal abuse. Qualified homes must have a minimum of 400 square feet of corral space per animal, with access to food, water, and shelter. A six-foot corral fence is required for adult horses; five feet for yearlings; and four-and-a-half feet for burros. All animals must be loaded in covered, stock-type trailers with swing gates and sturdy walls and floors. BLM staff will be on hand to assist with the short application process.

 

The Shelby County Expo Center is located at 980 State Highway 7, Center, Texas. For more information, call toll-free 866-468-7826 or visit www.blm.gov.

Timpson Bear Update


 

 

Timpson ISD and the Timpson STEM Academy is extremely proud and excited about the addition of Dr. Mihaela Munday. Dr. Munday has been teaching at Savanna State University in Georgia. Dr. Munday served as Interim Department Chair for the College of Education, and was an Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education. She taught undergraduate education courses in curriculum and assessment, instructional technology, educational foundations and grades 4-12 teaching math methods, while at Savanna State.  Dr. Munday has previously been employed by Timpson, where she taught math, during 2010-2012.  Dr. Munday will be teaching math once again in Timpson. She will teach dual credit math, in conjunction with Panola college, where she will be accredited.  She will also be teaching other math courses at Timpson. Timpson STEM Academy will be greatly enhanced by the addition of Dr. Munday. Her addition will allow Timpson students to gain 15 hours of college level math hours and complete their STEM endorsement. The STEM fields are one of the fastest growing job opportunities in Texas. Dr. Munday will serve as a resource to the STEM Academy, with her experience in grant writing and curriculum design. The experiences of Dr. Munday will enhance both the STEM and math programs in Timpson, giving our students an opportunity to be workforce ready or academically advanced.

Timpson Bear ISD


 

 

 

 

See the attached Elementary School Supply List!

 

TIMPSON ISD ATTENDS STEM CONFERENCE - Timpson ISD/STEM Academy attended the College and Career Readiness Conference in Plano Texas. The keynote speaker, Jamie Casap, emphasized how the world is changing every moment that we are in it.  He emphasized that we needed to move from educating kids in the 21st century and move to educating them for the 22nd century.  The model T Ford doesn’t look like the Ford Mustang, the bag cell phone doesn’t look like todays Iphone, Orville Wright’s model airplane doesn’t look like todays supersonic jets, therefore a classroom shouldn’t look the same way it did in the 1800’s. Timpson ISD is a progressive school district and we are proud of the success our students are having in their collegiate classes, certification classes, and the wide range of opportunities they are given.  Timpson’s class of 2019 graduated students with Level 1 certifications in welding and HVAC.  The class of 2019 had 33 students graduate with Dual Credit hours, with McKenzie Burgay graduating core complete (42 college hours), and Rebecca Mathis graduating with her Associate’s Degree from Panola College. 

 

One of the priorities of the Timpson T-STEM program is the development of embedded STEM activities in P-12 classes.   

 

- Dr. Munday, Timpson ISD’s new Dual Credit Mathematics Professor stated, “The visit at the Cinemark USA, Headquartered in Plano, TX, was a great model for connecting high school students to possible careers, one of the strategic priorities for the TEA T-STEM programs. Involving as many industries as possible in school STEM days could bring students' interests in a variety of careers connected to the local needs.”

 

-According to Kristan Solomon, there were many break-out sessions that gave affirmation that Timpson ISD is doing all the right things to meet our goals for our students and community.  Other districts that are ten years into their STEM/Early College venture have implemented the same programs and continually strive to create the same growth mindset and culture that we are cultivating right here in Timpson, Texas.  We believe that Timpson will be the very model that other districts will try to replicate in the near future. 

 

-Don Calhoon attended the conference was impressed that other content areas like social studies can apply the aspects of STEM.

 

Timpson High School is in the top 4 Best High Schools in East Texas, an honor bestowed upon us by US News and World Report.  We are proud of our school district and proud to be a BEAR!!!

 

See the attached photo showing those attending STEM conference. Dr. Munday and Ms. Cindy Sessions attended but are not present in the photo.
