SFA Center for Regional Heritage Research names research fellow

Houston businessman Herman Wright Jr., a documentary filmmaker and founder of an African-American history project gaining widespread attention in East Texas, recently was awarded a research fellowship through Stephen F. Austin State University’s Center for Regional Heritage Research.

Wright’s investigation into his own family’s history led him to create The Long Black Line, an organization devoted to telling the stories of African Americans in East Texas through the preservation of schools, churches, cemeteries and farms that formed the nucleus of community life. More

 

SFA students organize chapter of United Way

Starting this fall, Stephen F. Austin State University students will begin coordinating their own charitable projects for the United Way. Now, SFA will have its own chapter of the Nacogdoches County United Way on campus. The president of the student chapter will serve on the county United Way board of directors as a voting member.

This new student chapter will be concerned with raising the level of student involvement. The students hope to be organized in time to participate in SFA's homecoming Lumberjack Alley on Oct. 30. More

 

Breast cancer awareness campus competition

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Zeta Tau Alpha chapter at Stephen F. Austin State University wants YOUR OFFICE to THINK PINK during the month of October!

Beginning Monday, Oct. 4, decorate your office with breast cancer-related items and your office could win a lunch for 10 people from Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers — yum! The winning office will be announced at the football game vs. Central Arkansas. Here are the NEW criteria for judging:

Your decor must be NO LARGER than 8'x8' and no smaller than 5'x5'. We suggest a door or large window. If you have a bulletin board, that works well, too. This means no floors, ceilings or desks to decorate just the flat space.

One to 10 points will be awarded in each category, which includes creativity, use of breast cancer facts and information, visibility of display to the general public and  honoring survivorship. There are a total of 50 points possible for your display.

One point will be added to your total score for every pink Yoplait lid used in your display.  We will come back during the following week after judging to get your lids and add them to our collection!                                    

All participating offices will receive a certificate of recognition, and we'll hand out some special "merit" awards. If your office would like to participate, please e-mail Ciara Harrop at Ciara_dancer@swbell.net by Wednesday, Sept. 29. You will receive a confirmation that your office has been entered by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 1. Judging will take place beginning at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15.

The three dots in the Domino's Pizza logo represent the company's first three locations. The original concept was that a dot would be added for each new store that opened --- a plan that ran out of steam as the design ran out of space.
