The Nacogdoches Animal Shelter is looking to improve the customer service experience for adopting families by decreasing current operating hours. Currently the Animal Shelter is open Monday through Friday 12:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Beginning September 1, 2017, the new hours will reflect the shelter being closed on Saturday.

“We have a small staff and closing on Saturdays will allow us to have more people at the shelter to help customers during the week,” Theresa Jordan, Animal Services Manager said. “In looking at historical adoption data, we have very few adoptions take place on Saturday so this allows us to have more people and faster service during the week when most adoptions are taking place.”
Currently, animal surrenders do not take place on Saturdays. The shelter will continue to accept surrenders Monday through Friday from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The shelter also is maintaining the hours of current animal control officers who remain on call during the weekend.

Michele Siqueiros, president of The Campaign for College Opportunity, will serve as the keynote speaker for Noche De Gala, which will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 14 at Stephen F. Austin State University.

Michele Siqueiros, president of The Campaign for College Opportunity, will serve as the keynote speaker for Noche De Gala, which will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 14 at Stephen F. Austin State University.

Stephen F. Austin State University’s Office of Multicultural Affairs is hosting Noche De Gala to celebrate Hispanic-Latinx Heritage Month from 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 14 in the Baker Pattillo Student Center Regents’ Suite A.

Dr. Griselda Flores, SFA assistant director for OMA, explained the importance of this event.

“The Latinx population continues to increase, especially in Texas,” Flores said. “It is critical to understand the diverse culture, history and heritage of this population and learn to appreciate and respect all it has done for this country, as well as the influence it continues to make in the Americas.”

Keynote speaker Michele Siqueiros, president of The Campaign for College Opportunity, will discuss the importance of learning and appreciating one’s culture as it relates to college access. Siqueiros also will highlight issues affecting the larger Latinx community while motivating students to pursue their education and goals.

At The Campaign, Siqueiros works to influence California policymakers and college leaders so more students can attend college and graduate. She also acts as a voice and advocate for students as she seeks to eliminate racial inequities in higher education. The Campaign’s mission is to ensure all eligible and motivated students in California have the opportunity to go to college and succeed.

Additionally, event attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy Latinx-infused music and performances that showcase the beauty and diversity of the Hispanic-Latinx culture, according to Veronica Weaver, OMA director.

Tickets will be available beginning Aug. 28 at the information desk on the first floor of the BPSC. Admission is $4 for students and $6 for faculty, staff and community members. Dinner will be provided with admission. Attendees should dress to impress.

For more information, contact the OMA at (936) 468-1073.

SCHOOL STARTS NEXT MONDAY

CONTACT: Sgt. Greg Sowell
Police Department P.I.O.
936.559.2607

SCHOOL STARTS MONDAY- POLICE ADVISE CAUTION

The first day of school for Nacogdoches ISD students is Monday, August 28th , and the Nacogdoches Police Department reminds motorists to use caution in and around school zones.

“Traffic is traditionally congested for the first few days in school zones”, said NPD Sgt. Greg Sowell. “Motorists are urged to use extreme caution in these areas”.

NPD reminds motorists that pedestrian traffic will increase in school zones and that speed limits are lower than usual in designated school zones.

Motorists are reminded that cell phone use in school zones is prohibited by state law, unless it is a call for emergency help.

Texting or electronic messaging while driving is against city ordinance at any location in the city.

The Nacogdoches Police Department’s Patrol and Traffic Divisions will be actively patrolling school zones, as well as monitoring school busses loading and unloading. Citations will be issued for violations.

Motorists are reminded that state law requires vehicles to stop when a school bus is displaying flashing red lights, either loading or unloading students. “A good rule is to never pass a stopped school bus unless you are directed to do so by the driver, and then only with extreme caution”, Sowell added.
