Faculty and staff gather for Spring Convocation

  College President ‘Delighted’ for Spring Semester ;
presentations highlight ASL, Travis EC, Wellness
 

 

      Faculty and staff of San Antonio College convened Tuesday in the McAllister Auditorium to kick off the start of a new semester.  This college-wide meeting, held at the beginning of each semester, serves as a fresh reminder for employees of the college’s mission: “to educate a deserving public.”

     President Dr. Robert Zeigler welcomed the group back to campus saying, “I am delighted to start a new semester.” As master of ceremonies, Dr. Zeigler then gave the rundown of the agenda and quickly handed the spotlight and the microphone  to the American Sign Language (ASL) student interpreters who presented a brief performance about  the department.  The presentation, originally designed and written for the Alamo College Donors Thank You Luncheon, was presented in sign language with voice over audio.It highlighted the ASL program saying, “It [the ASL interpreter training program] is rated “Exemplary” by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.”  The presentation stated that the average hourly wage earned for graduates of the program is between $19 and $25. 

      Ray Hernandez, Director of the Dual Credit Program   took to the podium to recap the success of SAC’s partnership with Travis Early College High School. The first graduating class from Travis Early College HS was in May 2012; some 86 students graduated with an associate  degree or certificate.

  Guest speaker  Nancy Vargas (a senior at Travis), wowed the crowd with her personal testimony about attending college while still in high school. She started at Travis  in the fall of 2009 when she was 14 years old, and the students in her SAC class would ask for her help on assignments.

  While most of her friends are about to graduate high school she will graduate from  SAC with an associate degree before she obtains her high school diploma. To the sound of roaring applause from the audience, she announced that she was recently interviewed by Yale University.           

  In his presentation Chris Dillon, SAC Wellness Coordinator, outlined the college’s new Employee Wellness Program. Benefits-eligible employees will be chosen to participate in   health-related workshops, fitness training, personal goal setting, and the opportunity for group work out sessions. The pilot will launch this semester and last through May 10. For more information or to nominate someone or self-nominate, contact Dillon at cdillon@alamo.edu.

   Dr. Zeigler gave a State of the College Address titled “Excellence, Tradition, Opportunity.”

 “In the face of change, we continue to be true to our history, our mission and ourselves,” he said.  “SAC is in the business of educating the whole person and helping people grow.”

  At the end of the morning’s session Dr. Zeigler took questions from the audience, ranging from guns on campus to concerns about the flu epidemic.

    In response to a question about admission standards, he shared his personal story of when he was in high school. “I was written off as not college-ready. I was lousy in math. Coming to SAC directly from the Navy, I was put in developmental math. SAC saved me.”
