SFA professor publishes new book of poetry


 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Stephen F. Austin State University’s Dr. Christine Butterworth-McDermott, professor in the Department of English and Creative Writing, has published a new book of poetry titled “Evelyn As” with Fomnite Press.

 

The poems detail the early life of chorus girl Evelyn Nesbit, who had a traumatic and abusive relationship as a teen with famous architect Stanford White. This relationship led her husband, Pittsburgh millionaire Harry Kendall Thaw, to murder White. The murder resulted in the first “trial of the century.”

 

 

Butterworth-McDermott came across Nesbit’s story and was intrigued by the disconnect between her private and public life. However, it was the connection between Nesbit’s story and the present that inspired the book of poems.

 

“As a university professor, I was disturbed, nearly daily, by how often assault or sexism came up as a commonality that girls just out of their teens were experiencing. I had also experienced that, but my own experience was not something I wanted to delve into artistically, so ‘Evelyn As’ became a way to discuss all those current events important to me,” said Butterworth-McDermott. “Meaning that, as much as I wrote about Evelyn Nesbit, I wrote about the ‘Evelyn’ sitting in my classroom or across a table at lunch or in the mirror.”

 

Through these poems, Butterworth-McDermott wants readers to gain both empathy and sympathy for Nesbit and others experiencing traumatic relationships.

 

“I hope people see that it speaks to concerns we still have about how women are treated, how women are seen, and how we still force costumes and roles upon them. Evelyn’s story took place 115 years ago, but much of what happened to her still resonates,” said Butterworth-McDermott.

 

“Evelyn As” is available at The Bosslight in Nacogdoches, Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

SFA's Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture hosting community-wide tree contest


 

 

 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Stephen F. Austin State University’s Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture will host its fourth annual NacogdoTREES competition, a free community-wide contest celebrating the natural beauty of Nacogdoches, from Sept.16 through Nov. 18.

 

“The goal of NacogdoTREES is to highlight the importance of urban and community trees, raise awareness of their ecological benefits, introduce the community to the field of forestry and encourage citizens to spend time outdoors,” said Sarah Fuller, outreach coordinator for SFA’s Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture.

 

The competition includes categories for largest tree circumference, largest crown, tallest tree, best shade tree and best overall tree. Prizes will be awarded in each category. SFA faculty members developed videos to teach basic forestry measurements, including tree height and crown spread. The videos are available on the competition’s web page, forestry.sfasu.edu/nacogdotrees/, to guide participants through the process. 

 

“Keep in mind that it’s not just all about numbers and measurements,” Fuller said. “The best overall tree may be the tree with the best story, the most fans or simply the most beautiful. We really hope NacogdoTREES encourages people to visit some of our amazing city parks and the SFA campus.”

 

Trees eligible for submission must be located on the SFA campus, properties managed by Nacogdoches Parks and Recreation or on the entrant’s personal property. For competition guidelines, an entry form, a list of prizes, area maps and resources, visit forestry.sfasu.edu/nacogdotrees/. For more information, contact Sarah Fuller at fullersa@sfasu.edu or (936) 568-1185.

Panola College named a 2019 Great College to Work For


 

 

Panola College is once again named one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by The Great Colleges to Work For program.

 

The results, released today in a special insert of The Chronicle of Higher Education are based on a survey of 236 colleges and universities.  In all, 85 of the 236 institutions achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies, only 25 of these were two-year colleges. Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with Panola College included among the small universities with 500 to 2,999 students.

 

Panola College was also placed on the Honor Roll as one of only 42 colleges across the nation as a stand out college in its size category.

 

Panola College won honors in 9 categories this year:

 

·         Compensation and Benefits

·         Confidence in Senior Leadership

·         Facilities, Workspaces and Security

·         Job Satisfaction

·         Professional/Career Development Programs

·         Respect and Appreciation

·         Supervisor/Department-Chair Relationship

·         Teaching Environment (Faculty only)

·         Work/Life Balance

 

“This is a very satisfying affirmation of Panola College, but our real goal is not recognition – it’s being a community that values the needs and contributions of every individual. In that sense, everyone at Panola College helps to make this a great place to work,” said Panola College President, Greg Powell.

 

The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional questionnaire that captured employment data and workplace policies from each institution, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.

 

“An institution’s “human capital” is its most important asset and often its largest expense. It only makes sense to protect that investment,” said Rich Boyer, Senior Consultant at ModernThink. More than simply protecting that asset, the colleges and universities recognized in this year’s Great Colleges to Work For program demonstrate their commitment to the day-to-day experience of their faculty and staff and the overall health of their institution’s culture.”

 

 

The Great Colleges to Work For is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country. For more information and to view all the results of the survey, visit the Great College Program website at www.greatcollegesprogram.com.

 

ModernThink, a strategic human capital consulting firm, administered the survey and analyzed the results.

The Fillies success continued Saturday with another sweep of Mountain View (26-24, 25-6, 25-14). Ware hammered home 14 kills, Testoni followed with 11 and Walker contributed six. Idjilov ran the offense by adding 30 assists. Ware had her second double-double of the year by also leading the defense with 19 digs, while Floyd followed with nine. Ashton Brown and Testoni were forces at the net with 4 block assists apiece.

 

The weekend was capped off with a sweep of Victoria (25-11, 25-15, 25-17). Panola used a balanced attack with four players tallying five or more kills in the morning sweep. Ware led with 13, Walker followed with nine, Brown contributed six and April Brown finished with five respectively. Idjilov had 35 assists, while contributing three service aces. Erin Perez anchored the defense with 20 digs, followed by Floyd with nine and Ware with eight. At the net, Walker put up five block assists and Riley Seegers followed with four.

SFA's Fifth Annual International Film Festival to begin in October


 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Stephen F. Austin State University’s Department of Languages, Cultures and Communication in collaboration with the Division of Multidisciplinary Programs will bring five foreign cinematic productions to the SFA campus during the Fifth Annual International Film Festival.

 

The features will begin at 7 p.m. Oct. 7, 8 and 9, and Oct. 14 and 16, in Liberal Arts North, Room 142 on SFA’s campus. Admission is free. The festival will show one film each night with English subtitles. SFA faculty members will lead pre- and post-discussions of the films.

 

“Everybody Knows (Todos lo saben)” will kick off the festival. This story follows Laura (Penélope Cruz), a Spanish woman living in Buenos Aires, who returns to her hometown outside Madrid with her children for a wedding. While catching up with friends, Laura’s daughter is kidnapped, and old secrets find their way into the present.

 

Dr. Mario Morera, SFA visiting professor in the Department of Languages, Cultures and Communication, will lead a discussion on the film’s topics, including culture and identity, family, immigration and exile, and more.

 

The second night will feature “A Translator (Un traductor)” a film set in Havana, Cuba, in 1989. The film stars Rodrigo Santoro, of “Westworld” fame, as a Russian literature professor who receives orders from the government to act as a translator between Cuban doctors and the families of young patients from the Chernobyl disaster. Dr. Alexandra Martynova-Van Kley, SFA professor in the Department of Biology, will discuss the films portrayal of culture and identity, family, global economy, health and aging, international politics, human rights and more.

 

The third feature, “Birds of Passage (Pájaros de verano),” will take the audience to the La Guajira Desert, where an indigenous Wayúu clan tells their story. Guided by matriarch Ursula Pushiana, the clan faces constant risks of violence and incarceration from outsiders in Northern Colombia. Cultural differences arise and threaten to destroy the Wayúu’s way of life. Dr. Gabriela Miranda-Recinos, associate professor in the Department of Languages, Cultures and Communication, will discuss the film’s use of violence, criminal justice, indigenous people, religion and more.

 

“Camila’s Awakening (El despertar de Camila)” will be featured the fourth night of the festival on Oct. 14. The film explores how Camila, a teenager whose ambition is larger than life, deals with trials after she suffers a cerebrovascular accident that forces her to reinvent herself with courage, humor and love. Dr. Dianne Dentice, associate professor in the Department of Anthropology, Geography and Sociology, will lead a discussion regarding body image, disability, women and youth, and more.

 

The festival’s final feature is “I Girl (Yo niña),” which tells the story of Armonia, a young girl living among the lakes, rivers and forests of Southern Argentina, away from a consumer society and civilization. Armonia navigates life alongside Pablo and Julia, neo-hippies, vegetarians and questioners of the system. Dr. Anne Smith, professor of philosophy, will lead a discussion about activism, education, global economics, sociology and more.

 

Foreign film standards vary from those in the United States, and film topics may address controversial subject matter. Use discretion when deciding to view these films.

 

The International Film Festival was made possible with the support from Pragda, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of Spain, Spain Arts and Culture, and a grant from Humanities Texas.

 

For more information, contact Dr. Gabriela Miranda-Recinos at mirandag@sfasu.edu or Dr. José Neftalí Recinos at recinosjn@sfasu.edu.

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.

A time honored tradition continues at Tenaha Independent School District.  Tenaha ISD recognizes those that have displayed outstanding dedication and commitment to their community.  Through the years numerous members have been initiated into the Hall of Honor. 
The process begins with nominations from members of the community.  A committee then begins the difficult task of deciding who will be chosen.   This year Tenaha ISD is proud to present Robert Barton and Mike Ogden as the 2019 Hall of Honor inductees. 

 

Robert Barton is a 1975 graduate of Tenaha ISD, where he participated in Football, Basketball, Baseball and Golf.  Robert was also a class officer and a member of the student council. After graduating Robert attended Panola Jr College and Stephen F. Austin University.

Robert has been a high school sports official for over 40 years, where he officiated baseball, football and basketball which he is still actively doing today. He also had the privilege to broadcast the play by play for KGAS Radio in 2003 when the Tigers won their first State Championship in Basketball and was the color commentator in 1998 when the Tigers won their first Sate Championship in Football.

 

 Robert was presented the On Your Side award from KTBS channel 3 in 2006 for his help in bringing awareness to Childhood Cancer.

Mike Ogden is a 1976 graduate of Tenaha High School, having attended all twelve years of school in Tenaha.  He married his high school sweetheart, Crystal Umbrell Ogden, who is a 1978 Tenaha graduate.  He has two loving daughters who are both graduates of Tenaha High School as well.  Kim Ogden Sitgreaves (2001) and husband Drew, and Stacie Ogden Barr (2004) and husband Brandon.  Mike has three grandchildren who adore their Pawpaw; Andrew Graham Sitgreaves, Briggs Michael Sitgreaves and Harper Jane Sitgreaves.


It has been both a privilege and a great honor for Mike to serve on the school board of Tenaha ISD for 10 years collectively.  He has served on the city council for one term.    He coached several little league baseball teams and has been a Tenaha booster club supporter.  Mike has been a long-time member of Tenaha First Baptist Church; serving as a deacon for 25 years.  He is a fan of ALL things Tenaha Tigers and can usually be found wherever a ballgame is being held, sporting his maroon and white and cheering on his favorite team and students!
Growing up in a small town is one of the things Mike loves most about his years in school at Tenaha.  It’s one of the things he still loves!  He is grateful for the many teachers who counseled and invested in him throughout school.  Those experiences have played a huge roll in how he strives to mentor the youth of Tenaha today.   He devotes much of his time to being present for them and supporting them in their academic, athletic and individual endeavors.   He knows the immense value in pouring into young people because of those in the school system who did so for him.


The 2019 Hall of Honor Induction Ceremony will kick off the 2019 Tenaha ISD Homecoming Activities on October 5th at 9:30 am in the Tenaha High School Cafetorium.
