WCJC e-Newsletter highlights students, faculty and programs

WCJCFrom athletic achievement to educational programs to collaborative projects with area industries, there’s no shortage of activity occurring at Wharton County Junior College. Thanks to a new e-Newsletter, students, faculty and the general public can now stay abreast of these noteworthy happenings by simply checking their inbox.

WCJC launched the e-Newsletter – entitled The Pioneer – on Monday, July 14. College officials said the information source will serve as a quick and easy way for the community to keep up with all that the college has to offer.

“New programs, collaborative projects and numerous events occur at WCJC on a nearly daily basis,” said WCJC’s Director of Marketing and Communications Zina Carter. “We want to share this information with everyone in our service area and believe The Pioneer will be an effective way to do that.”

The inaugural issue was emailed to faculty, elected officials, local educators and media outlets. It was also linked to the college’s website and Facebook pages. Upcoming issues of The Pioneer will be released on a quarterly basis, with four newsletters published each year. Marketing and Communications Coordinator Benjamin Sharp will oversee the project.

Each issue will focus on the latest news from the college’s four campuses: Wharton, Bay City, Sugar Land and Richmond. The lead story in the July issue is WCJC’s agreement with Tenaris to provide a Manufacturing Technology program at the Bay City Campus. Other articles in this month’s newsletter include the new Presidential Scholars Program, the achievements of WCJC cowboy Cade Goodman at last month’s national rodeo finals and a feature on WCJC welding instructor Aaron Dittmar, just to name a few.

The newsletter can be found on the college’s website – www.wcjc.edu – and on the college’s Facebook page. To subscribe to The Pioneer, individuals can simply click on the “Join Our Mailing List” button, which can be found at the bottom left of each issue. There is no charge to subscribe.

“Anyone interested in what’s going on at WCJC should subscribe to The Pioneer,” Carter said. “It’s a free service and a really great way to get a glimpse into all that the college has to offer.”
