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.

The faculty exhibition traditionally features a wide variety of artwork in ceramics, sculpture, photography, painting, prints, metal work and mixed media.

2019 Tenaha ISD Hall of Honor


 

 


 


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 served as President of Tenaha Youth Sports a number of years and also coached the Tenaha Little League, Tenaha Youth Football and Tenaha Little Dribblers. Robert also served as President of the Tiger Booster Club for many years.

 

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.


Robert has served on the Tenaha ISD Board of Trustees for over 20 years where he has held the office of Secretary, President and is currently the Vice-President.

 

Robert is a Tiger supporter in all their activities and has traveled many a mile to watch the Tigers compete in all activities. Robert is a member of the First Baptist Church of Tenaha.

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.

Fillies Fall to Temple


 

 

 

The Panola College Fillies fell short on Tuesday to Temple in a close five-set match (25-21, 23-25, 25-12, 18-25, 13-15). 

 

Offensively, Mikayla Ware led with 17 kills, while Mylena Testoni and Nyah Walker followed with 10 each. Maria Idjilov dished out 47 assists for the night. 

 

At the net, April Brown and Idjilov chipped in two block assists. Libero Hannah Floyd and Ware led the defense with 18 digs apiece, while Idjilov followed with 14. 

 

"Tonight was a tough loss but something our team will grow and learn from," said Head Coach Nicole Thorn. "We knew Temple would come out and play well and in order to beat them, we needed to match or exceed their energy and unfortunately we did not do that tonight. They exposed some of our weaknesses which is great because it gives us some looks on what else we need to work on. We have to remember, it's early in the season and thankfully we have time to get better at some of these things before we start conference play.  Congratulations to Temple, they are a great team and played very well tonight."

 

The Fillies will return to action next week as they travel to Brookhaven and Northlake College for matches at 3 pm and 7 pm on Tuesday, September 10th. Go Fillies!

Currently, she’s employed as a territory sales manager for TreeTown USA, a nursery that provides plant material to industry businesses from coast to coast. Her love and extensive knowledge of plant material are instrumental as she assists the public in choosing the right plant for the right place.

 

The Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series is held the second Thursday of each month and includes a rare plant raffle after the program. The lecture is free and open to the public, but donations to the Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series fund are always appreciated.

 

Parking is available at the PNPC and Raguet Elementary School, located at 2428 Raguet St.
