Adopt-a-College Hurricane Harvey Relief

  • Written by Quintinn Stewart

As Hurricane Harvey relief and recovery efforts are underway across the state, Howard College is partnering with Midland College in an “Adopt-A-College” initiative to help some of our sister colleges on the coast. Not only did their individual campuses receive damage and destruction, but their employees and students are left with trying to recover from their own personal losses. I cannot even begin to imagine the difficulty they are experiencing as they go through this process.

At this time, we have contacted Alvin Community College and College of the Mainland. They have been more than gracious in their response and appreciate any and everything we can do to help!

Alvin Community College Needs:
Laptop computers for students: We are using the funds that have already been raised to purchase laptops for students so that they can continue their schoolwork. We aim to have these purchased by the end of the week thanks to the generosity that you all have already shown!
Money: They have established an account where we can make a donation and their foundation is going to match the $$ raised up to $10,000. They are using these funds to get Walmart cards, etc for employees and students as they request. If you feel led to donate cash, we will collect and donate cash to this account. If you want to write a check, please make your check out to “ACC Foundation”. These will be sent directly to their foundation for deposit. Do not make your check out to HC – we can’t accept it into college funds.
Toiletries: Deodorant, body wash, toothpaste, etc. Items that people can use for personal hygiene. Please donate new items only.
Paper products: Paper plates, drinkware, plastic ware, etc.
Food: They are requesting individual microwaveable meals as they have several staff and students living in hotels. Please do not donate or collect food items that do not meet this request.

College of the Mainland Needs:
We are still waiting to receive their itemized list so that we know we are donating/collecting items that are truly needed. Once we have that list I will send it out to the district in an update!

Updates
We will send out updates as we move forward but we would like to have our initial wave of collection completed by September 30th. There may be additional needs arise as the colleges, their employees, and their students move forward in recovery. We would like to be with them through the process and show our support in their trying times both now and in the future. As Dr. Sparks always reminds us, “Tough times don’t last…but tough community colleges do!”

Many of you may have already donated in other venues and please do not think that there is an expectation that you continue to give unless you are led to do so. We feel like our efforts to help our sister colleges will give us a chance to make a personal impact with people just like us! If you have any questions about what you can do to support the cause, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness and generosity!

Student Success Celebration

  • Written by Mick Sudano
  • Hits: 225

BIG SPRING – Student success was in the spotlight last night as the Big Spring campus of Howard College held their annual award convocation to celebrate student achievement and excellence.

            “This is one of my favorite times of year, a ‘making dreams real’ kind of night,” said Dr. Cheryl T. Sparks, President.  “We get to take a well-deserved time out and celebrate the many successes of our students.” 

Among recognizing the President’s list, the Dean’s list and various departmental awards, the college also hands out an Educator of the Year award, American Legion Citizenship awards, and the coveted Presidential Outstanding Student award.

The Outstanding Educator of the Year award is chosen by popular vote of the student body. This year’s recipient is Cynthia Watt. Watt has been a champion of math since she received her BA in mathematics in 1980 from Wayland Baptist University. Since that time, she has spent many hours both in and out of the classroom helping students master the often unpopular subject of mathematics. She has been at Howard College since 2013 and has helped countless students face the challenge of learning math so that they can successfully continue their own educational journeys.

The female recipient of the 2017-2018 American Legion Citizenship award is Madison Neff.

Neff, a member of the Hawk softball team, has maintained a 4.0 grade point average throughout her 2 years at Howard College. She is a leader on and off the field and has been active on campus as well as in the community through service work.

The male recipient of the 2017-2018 American Legion Citizenship award is David Mathis.

Mathis is a member of Phi Theta Kappa and Sigma Kappa Delta honor societies. He is very active in the theater program and has received multiple awards at the state level. He stays active in the community by working with the Howard County Democrats organization and volunteering as a foster parent.

The Presidential Award for Outstanding Student of the Year is the most prestigious award given to a student of Howard College. The recipient must be a sophomore and selection is based on academic excellence, participation in student life, leadership qualities, and overall college spirit. Nominations are received from all employees.

This year the award was presented to two students – Taylor Allison and Aaron Holcomb.

Allison is a member of the Hawk women’s basketball team, Phi Theta Kappa and Sigma Kappa Delta honor societies and serves as the president of the student government association. She has also been a resident’s assistant in Turner Hall. She was recently honored as a member of the 2018 All-Texas Academic Team in San Antonio. She will be continuing her education in Biology with a goal of becoming a cardiothoracic surgeon.

Holcomb has maintained a 4.0 GPA at Howard College and was recognized on the President’s list as well as a member of Phi Theta Kappa. He is an athletic trainer in the Sports Medicine program and has also been on the President’s roundtable committee. Not only does he do work for Hawk athletic programs but he has also volunteered as an athletic trainer for the football program at Coahoma High School. He enjoys playing disc golf with other students and plant to continue his education in athletic training.

Both students were awarded a medal and a $250 scholarship.
