Competition showcases San Jac Talent

The Student Government Association (SGA) of San Jacinto College Central Campus is hosting the second annual San Jac’s Got Talent competition on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 7:00 P.M. in the ballroom of the William M. Newton Student Center.


The contest will showcase the talents of students from all three campuses who were selected from auditions held Feb. 5.


The panel of judges will include a student, a faculty member, and local professional singer Arabella Jones.


SGA Central campus President Jay Banisham said the proceeds from the event will benefit a good cause.



“As far as tickets go,” Banisham said, “anyone is welcome to come. We are going to make it a donation event and all proceeds will go to the Aids Walk Foundation.”


Contest winners will receive first, second, and third prize trophies.


Student Deidre Nash said she is excited about the show.


“I will most definitely attend to support my fellow students,” Nash said.


Fellow Lara Nell said she did not know about the talent competition, but now plans on attending.


“I’m glad you told me about the event,” Nell said, “I would love to go to that.”


Meanwhile, the SGA hopes many students will get involved and attend.


“We really hope that the students of San Jac will come and show their support,” Banisham said, “not only for this great foundation, but also their school.”
