Superintendents of the three school district in the North Channel area were the featured speakers last Friday at the Chamber’s monthly luncheon.

Emcee for the luncheon, held at the San Jacinto College student union, was former Chamber chairman Charles Grant. He is now heading up a membership drive for the chamber, entitled Forty for Forty in Four. This is a reference to the 40th anniversary of the chamber, and the goal of adding 40 new members in four weeks. With a sly sense of humor, Grant has offered to “Kiss A Pig” if the chamber board and members meet this goal.

Grant was followed by each of the superintendents of the three school districts, and they exhibited a tongue-in-cheek rivalry in their remarks. (more…)

jacinto-city-elementary

On Saturday, October 1, the Jacinto City Elementary student council participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure at the Sam Houston Park in downtown Houston. These fourth and fifth grade council members participated to show appreciation and dedication to the Houston area community. Many of the students expressed interest in doing something that made a positive impact on their lives while showing support for cancer survivors, those who are currently battling cancer, as well as to honor individuals who have lost their lives to breast cancer.

“Student council is a leadership committee that is dedicated to servicing the community,” Ms. Scott, JCE student council sponsor said. “The Susan G. Komen Walk was an excellent opportunity for our students to support those battling cancer and survivors.”

“Participating in the Race for the Cure made me feel proud because some people have cancer, and I walked to help them get better,” Jordan Balderas, 5th grader said.
