SFA student receives inaugural geology-based scholarship

Stephen F. Austin State University geology graduate student Jensen Angelloz of Hallettsville was awarded the inaugural East Texas Geologic Society scholarship, funded through a partnership with the SFA Department of Geology.

Stephen F. Austin State University geology graduate student Jensen Angelloz of Hallettsville was awarded the inaugural East Texas Geologic Society scholarship, funded through a partnership with the SFA Department of Geology.

An inaugural scholarship funded through the East Texas Geologic Society in partnership with the Stephen F. Austin State University Department of Geology will be awarded to an SFA student.

The scholarship is specifically designed to assist students working toward a Master of Science in geology.

”It is an absolute honor to have been selected to receive this award,” said Jensen Angelloz of Hallettsville, ETGS Scholarship’s first recipient. “Many of the candidates are close friends who have excelled academically and are just as deserving to receive this honor. I hope to exceed the expectations of the scholarship committee with my future successes and eventually be in a position to give back to the ETGS and the Department of Geology at SFA.”

Angelloz was chosen for the scholarship because of his role as president of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists’ chapter at SFA, his role as captain of the Imperial Barrel Award team and the initiative he has undertaken to “improve himself and his fellow classmates,” said Dr. Wesley Brown, chair of the Department of Geology.

The scholarship will award $6,000 per year. Previous recipients must reapply to be eligible in following years.

“I want to use a portion of the scholarship to fund analysis for my thesis,” Angelloz said. “Weatherford Labs, a national rock and fluid analysis lab, has a wonderful imaging technology that can enhance the analysis of my samples. The technology is normally used by leaders in the petroleum industry to examine reservoir quality from well cores, making it relatively expensive to use as a student.”

Director of SFA’s International Studies and Programs receives Fulbright grant

heatherStephen F. Austin State University’s International Studies and Programs director Heather Catton has been awarded a grant through the U.S. Department of State’s Fulbright Scholar Program to support a two-week group seminar in Germany.

“I always thought of Fulbright scholars as those super-smart international students who were chosen to come to the U.S. to pursue their graduate degrees or conduct research projects,” Catton said. “I never realized that there were opportunities to get short-term Fulbright scholarships outside of academia.

“I’m thrilled that I found out about this program,” she added. “It fits so well into what we want to do to help develop more networks for study abroad, especially exchange programs. It’s an honor to be a Fulbright grantee, and I look forward to helping meet Sen. J. William Fulbright’s goal of developing international understanding through establishing open communication and long-term cooperative relationships.”

The two-week group seminar is designed to familiarize U.S. higher education administrators with Germany’s higher education system, society and culture, according to the program’s website. It is not the first time Catton has worked with the Department of State, though it is the first scholarship of its kind she has received.

“SFA hosts students through the state-department-sponsored UGRAD program — an exchange program that sends students to the U.S. on short-term programs from Pakistan, Eurasia and Kosovo,” Catton explained. “I also had the chance to serve on a scholarship selection committee in Tunisia for the U.S. Department of State’s Thomas Jefferson Scholarship Program. This program brings Tunisian students to the U.S. for one-year, non-degree programs. SFA started hosting students through this program in 2013, and so far we have hosted five Tunisian students.”

Catton was one of 20 Fulbright International Education Administrators from across the U.S. to be selected to connect with German educational leaders. The group will begin the two-week trip in Berlin where they will be provided an introduction to Germany and its higher education system through briefings, government appointments, campus visits and cultural events.

“We will then be split into four subgroups, which will visit different cities/universities,” Catton said. “I will be going to Frankfurt and will be based at Universität Frankfurt.”

The program will conclude in Bonn where participants will meet with the Fulbright group participating in the same program in France. Seven IEA seminar programs are hosted each year in India, Russia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, France and Germany.

“I always love the opportunity to travel abroad,” Catton said. “Beyond that, I think this program will allow me to make valuable connections with colleagues from U.S. and German universities that SFA may be able to collaborate with in the future. I know that the program is going to offer so many opportunities and visits that I could never have arranged myself. I think it will be a real ‘behind the scenes’ tour of Germany with all of the resources and networks that the German-American Fulbright Commission has developed.”

Stephen F. Austin State University’s Culinary Café will host a closing reception for artist and alumna Umeki Earl-Nelson from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1, in the Culinary Café, located in the Education Annex, Room 121, on SFA’s campus.

The SFA and Nacogdoches communities are invited to attend this free event. Light refreshments will be served, and the dress is casual.

The Culinary Café features artwork by various artists each semester, and Nelson’s collection has been on display since June.

“It means a lot to have my work showcased at SFA. The university has given me the opportunity to grow personally and professionally,” Nelson said. “I truly value the relationships I have developed here, and I am excited about the opportunity to share part of my life that has given me so much joy. My hope is that the work I do is an inspiration to someone.”

Nelson explained her work represents her progress as an artist, and the display showcases various mediums, including charcoal, graphite pencil, and acrylic and oil paints.

“With each medium, I took on the challenge of trying something different. When I felt as though I used the medium successfully and as intended, then I was ready to accept the next challenge,” Nelson said.

Nelson graduated summa cum laude from SFA with a major in interior design and a minor in art in August 2016. A LaRue, Texas, native, Nelson now lives in Tyler.

“Umeki is an extremely talented and dedicated individual,” said Leisha Bridwell, SFA associate professor in the School of Human Sciences. “She is an excellent artist who studied art before coming to SFA to major in interior design.”

Nelson was awarded Outstanding Major and Outstanding Achievement during SFA’s School of Human Sciences Convocation in April 2016. She also recently completed an internship with Kirk Acheson, a registered architect with more than 20 years of experience, at Total Engineering Services in Tyler, which is an engineering and architecture firm.

“Umeki is a very creative and talented student, one you could always depend on to go above and beyond,” said Sally Ann Swearingen, associate professor in SFA’s School of Human Sciences.

Nelson said she finds inspiration in life, humans, family, her life experiences, fashion and of course, design.
