Girls Basketball

By James Volz|Uvalde Leader News

Though the game took four quarters to complete, the outcome of the girls championship game of the 57th-annual Southwest Texas Junior College Invitational basketball tournament was decided early.

Canyon’s girls got off to an 11-0 lead during the first two minutes of the ball game.

Just 10 seconds into the contest, Megan Sifuentes drained a three-point field goal. She later sank a pair of free throws.

Zoe Burleson sank a short-range field goal and Jayden Aguilera sank a short-range shot to up the Canyon lead to 9-0.

Burleson grabbed an offensive rebound and scored on a put-back shot. Utopia finally got on the scoreboard at the 5:39 mark as Kaleigh Keeney tallied on a layup.

Registration continues for spring classes
Registration photoSWTJC offices will close Dec. 9 and will reopen Jan. 3 however, students who plan to register for spring classes are encouraged to do so as soon as possible to ensure they enroll in the classes they want.

Luis Fernandez, college registrar, recommends that students visit with a counselor this week in order avoid the rush at the beginning of the year.

Students who have registered for the Spring 2017 semester and have not paid are encouraged to visit the business office to make payment arrangements to avoid being dropped from classes. Individuals on financial aid should visit with a member of the financial aid department to assure all paperwork has been submitted and approved.

“With this being the last week of the semester before the holiday break, we encourage students who plan to attend spring classes to come in and make sure they will not be dropped from their classes due to non-payment,” said Fernandez. “After the holiday break, students will have less than a week to have their affairs in order before the payment deadline of Jan. 6.”

Students can register and pay online during the holiday break as long as they have completed the Texas Success Initiative Assessment.

Students are required to pay or make payment arrangements by Jan. 6.  SWTJC will extend admissions office hours until 7 p.m., beginning Jan. 3 - 5, and 5 p.m. on Jan. 6.

For more information on registration, contact the admissions office at (830) 591-7255. The first day of spring classes is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 17.

Honor society members organize to battle student hunger
Food PantryUvalde, Texas, Nov. 22 – A small, unremarkable closet in the Student Activities Lounge holds a wealth of goods for many students at Southwest Texas Junior College.

Inside, shelves are stocked with items such as pasta, canned goods, soups, water, peanut butter, chips, oatmeal and other similar items.

What is it? It is a food pantry for hungry students.

Eta Beta Chapter members of the international honor society Phi Theta Kappa recently devised a plan to launch what is now the SWTJC Student Food Pantry.

The food pantry project helps fulfill the chapter’s requirement to maintain the 5-Star Chapter Status, which the Eta Beta Chapter has maintained for 39 years under the leadership of longtime advisor Barbra Blair and recently Randa Schell.

Each year, the Eta Beta Chapter works with SWTJC President, Dr. Hector Gonzales to develop a project that will benefit the campus community. Chapter officers and members recognized obtaining food is an enormous dilemma for many students, in particular for students with no transportation who remain on campus in the dorms.

Gonzales agreed to match donated funds up to $1,000. The first donation came from Wal-Mart in Uvalde in the form of $300 in non-perishable food items.
