APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR NACOGDOCHES CVB BOARD

On December 16 the Nacogdoches City Council authorized the creation of a three member committee to conduct interviews and make recommendation to the City Council for appointments to the CVB Board of Directors.

Old-Fashioned Sweet Tooth Sugarcane Event

The City of Nacogdoches will hold their annual Old-Fashioned Sweet Tooth Sugarcane Event at the Durst-Taylor Historic House and Gardens on Saturday, January 10, 2015, from 8:00 AM until Noon. The property will come to life and resemble life in the 1800’s – when sugarcane pressing was a community wide event. We will press our own homegrown sugarcane using an 1860’s, mule powered, sugarcane mill. The sugarcane juice will then be boiled down into ribbon cane syrup for all to see.

We will have many other demonstrations and hands-on activities including blacksmithing, a spinning demonstration, pioneer crafts, live string music from the Attoyac Valley String Ensemble, and of course tours of the Durst-Taylor Historic House and Gardens. The Nacogdoches Kiwanis Club will be selling pancakes and all the fixins’ for $5.00 per plate. The Sugarcane pressing will begin at 8:30 am, so arrive early if you would like to see mule at work.

Come join us and bring your family, friends, and anyone who has a love of history or sweets, to the Durst Taylor Historic House and Gardens -Old Fashion Sweet Tooth Sugarcane event.

If you would like additional information about the property, events, or to schedule a tour, contact Jessica Sowell, Assistant Historic Sites Manager at 936-560-4443 or email historicsite@ci.nacogdocehs.tx.us.

Outstanding donors honored at SFA Gala

Outstanding donors were honored during the 26th annual SFA Gala held recently at Stephen F. Austin State University.

Philanthropic contributors to the university are recognized by induction into one of three societies: the Fredonia Society, the Thomas J. Rusk Society, and the Stephen F. Austin Society. The cumulative levels of giving range from $100,000 to $1 million or more.

This year’s honorees include Elliott Electric Supply, Nacogdoches Medical Center and Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital. All three were inducted into the Fredonia Society. The late Nelson Rusche, an Appleby native who became a successful Houston businessman, was inducted into the Stephen F. Austin Society.

“Support from donors and special friends like the ones honored this year is crucial to the success of SFA and its students, and we were pleased to honor their commitment to the university at the Gala,” said Jill Still, SFA vice president for university advancement.

Proceeds from the Gala help build a permanent endowment created by the SFASU Foundation to honor faculty achievement.

Elliott Electric Supply

As one of the largest electrical supplies distributors in the country, Elliott Electric Supply operates more than 130 stores in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico, employing more than 1,400 highly skilled workers. Headquartered in Nacogdoches, the company specializes in a wide variety of electrical equipment and construction materials needed by electrical contractors, industrial accounts and original equipment manufacturers.

Elliott Electric was started in 1972 by Bill Elliott and his late wife, Micky, and Bill remains as involved in the company as he was on the first day of business. In addition to its support of SFA’s College of Fine Arts, Elliott Electric has shown its appreciation for the Nacogdoches community through its work with the Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture.

After Micky’s death, Bill honored his wife with a bridge that crosses Lanana Creek into the Mize Azalea Garden on the SFA campus.

“Bill knows how to build bridges that connect plants and people. He’s done that at SFA and in our community,” said Dr. David Creech, director of the SFA Gardens.

Nacogdoches Medical Center

Nacogdoches Medical Center, a licensed 153-bed acute care facility, opened in 1975 and was recognized in 2013 as having one of the best patient satisfaction ratings out of the 78 hospitals that make up Tenet Healthcare. Medical Center strives to be a great community partner, as well, with members of its leadership team serving on 18 community boards. The hospital also is loyal to the university’s mission, providing support for SFA athletics, the College of Fine Arts, the College of Sciences and Mathematics, and the Archie McDonald Speaker Series.

Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital

Memorial Hospital has been a vital part of the community for more than 85 years, growing along with East Texas and expanding services to focus on the unique needs of each individual member of the family. Memorial Hospital’s commitment to making East Texas a great place has included support for SFA athletics, the College of Fine Arts, the Richard and Lucille DeWitt School of Nursing and the Veterans Resource Center.

Dr. Kim Childs, dean of the SFA College of Sciences and Mathematics, said the university is fortunate to have Nacogdoches Medical Center and Memorial Hospital as partners.

“Within the SFA College of Sciences and Mathematics, our pre-health professional students and nursing majors benefit from the high quality training and mentoring they receive from professionals within the local hospitals. SFA students and faculty benefit from the latest medical technology, from hands-on training to receiving quality medical care. We are proud to partner with both hospitals to produce leaders of tomorrow who are prepared to embrace the challenges in health care.”

Nelson Rusche

Nelson Rusche was born in 1924 and was awarded the Purple Heart for honorably serving his country as an Army sergeant during World War II. He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from SFA in 1979.

Rusche founded A.N. Rusche Distrib­uting Company and Mister Car Wash and was a member of the Petroleum Club, the Houston Club, Houston Country Club, and the Texas Food and Fuel Association. Rusche honored SFA by endowing the Nelson Rusche College of Business in 2002. He passed away in 2013.

Faculty Awards

The faculty awards presented during the Gala recognize innovation and excellence in teaching and research. Dr. Matthew McBroom, associate professor of forest hydrology, is the recipient of the 2014 Faculty Achievement Award for Teaching. Dr. Kefa Onchoke, associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry, earned the Faculty Achievement Award for Research.

The annual event included a cocktail reception, a candlelight dinner and a dance with entertainment provided by In10City, a group of accomplished musicians from Dallas performing hits including rock, jazz, country and hip-hop.

Mr. & Miss SFA Announced

Chad Huckaby of Nacogdoches and Sabrina Wallace of Deer Park have been chosen for the 2015 Mr. and Miss SFA award. The students will be honored during halftime of the Stephen F. Austin State University men’s basketball game against Houston Baptist University beginning at 6 p.m. February 7.

The Mr. SFA Award was established in honor of the late Stan McKewen, a 1934 SFA graduate. The Arnodean Covin Miss SFA Award honors the SFA alumna who was named Miss SFA in 1940, 1941 and 1942.

Huckaby, recipient of the Stan McKewen Mr. SFA Award, is a senior mathematics major. A 2011 graduate of Martinsville High School, he is the son of Tim and Monaca Huckaby of Nacogdoches.

Huckaby is president of the SFA Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, the national leadership honor society, and serves on ODK’s national membership committee and the inaugural national Student Advisory Board.

In addition to serving as a supplemental instructor in SFA’s Academic Assistance and Resource Center, Huckaby has participated in the SFA School of Honors and the SFA Litterbug program. Huckaby serves as pianist for the Martinsville Baptist Church and leads worship services at a local nursing home. He has received the Citizens 1st Bank NOBLE Scholarship since 2011.

A recipient of the Who’s Who Among Students in America Universities and Colleges award, Huckaby plans to enroll in a master’s degree program at SFA after graduation.

“Mr. SFA should be hardworking and intelligent,” said Dr. Lee W. Payne, associate professor of political science. “Chad fulfills both of these requirements very well. I know from many conversations with Chad that he is a diehard Lumberjack who bleeds purple.”

Wallace, a 2011 graduate of Deer Park High School, is a senior health science major and recipient of the Arnodean Covin Miss SFA Award. She is the daughter of Paulette Baker and Robert Wallace of Deer Park.

Through her service as an involvement adviser and as executive director of the Involvement Center, Wallace has assisted students seeking to become involved in SFA organizations. She served as secretary and president of the Traditions Council, as a Jack Camp counselor to incoming first-year students, and as an orientation leader. She received the 2011 Traditions Council Female Member of the Year award and the SFA Way Award in 2014 for exemplifying and living SFA’s honor code during every aspect of her daily life.

“We encourage our student leaders to leave a legacy not a resume during their time at SFA, and Sabrina has truly strived to do so,” said Lacey Claver, assistant director of student engagement.

The Mr. and Miss SFA title is an award presented each year by the SFA Alumni Association to exemplary students who well represent and promote SFA. Recipients are selected based on their scholarship, participation and leadership in academic and co-curricular activities, citizenship and service and loyalty to the university. Selections are made by a committee of faculty, staff, community leaders and alumni.
