San Antonio College opened the spring semester with Weeks of Welcome – two weeks of programming aimed at welcoming students back to campus. WOW events and activities included: information tables, t-shirt and food giveaways, a Success Zone highlighting campus departments and programs, men’s basketball games, a welcome reception for students with disabilities and student veterans, and a showcase of student clubs and organizations. 

 

McDermitt Featured in Special Event

The San Antonio College Fine Arts and Cultural Series (FACES) Committee hosted a special event featuring actor and comedian Josh McDermitt. Best known for his role as Dr. Eugene Porter in AMC’s “The Walking Dead” McDermitt addressed a crowd of more than 400 students, faculty, staff and guests in the McAllister Auditorium. McDermitt, along with comedian Clinton Pickens, engaged in a Q&A with audience members discussing his career and advice for surviving the zombie apocalypse. Following the presentation, McDermitt interacted with audience members, signing autographs and taking pictures with everyone in attendance. The event was the second of four planned by the FACES Committee for the 2015-16 academic year.  

 

Challenger Commemorated

The Scobee Education Center at San Antonio College commemorated the 30th anniversary of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster with a special remembrance ceremony on Thursday, January 28. The 30th Anniversary topic garnered national and local media attention from the Associated Press, Express News, WMUR in New Hampshire, Dayton Daily News, Telemundo San Antonio, KENS Channel 5, KABB Fox 29, WOAI Channel 4 and more. 

SAC students, along with members of the faculty and staff, gathered in the Holt Foundation Challenger Memorial Garden to honor the lives of the seven Challenger astronauts. During Thursday’s ceremony, San Antonio College President Dr. Robert Vela addressed the group, discussing how the Scobee Education Center and its first-of-its-kind, next-generation Challenger Learning Center serves as the living legacy to the astronauts of the Space Shuttle Challenger. Justin Blacklock, a professor in SAC’s speech department, then read Ronald Reagan’s address to the nation following the events of January 28, 1986. The ceremony concluded with a memorial wreath being placed among the monuments. A permanent fixture dedicated to the Challenger astronauts, the Holt Foundation Challenger Memorial Garden features seven stone monuments, one for each crewmember, engraved with the individuals name, position, and portrait, as well as the STS 51-L mission patch design.
