Galveston College Foundation announces Helen K. and Phillip A. Lohec Endowed Scholarship

The Galveston College Foundation Board of Directors has announced the creation of the Helen K. and Phillip A. Lohec Endowed Scholarship at Galveston College.

Established by Mark T. and Pamela Lohec Stasney and family, the new scholarship is available to full- and part-time students at Galveston College who are pursuing an associate degree or technical certificate and may be applied to tuition, fees, books or course supplies. The first recipient will be announced in spring 2022.

“My parents have been a part of the Galveston community for decades,” said daughter Pamela Stasney. “They have served and volunteered in the community in many roles, from government to historical to education to church. We wanted to find a way to honor their contributions and hard work, and we felt a scholarship at a local institution would be an appropriate way to thank them while supporting and encouraging others. We hope the recipients will find the same calling to work hard and to support their home communities.”

Galveston College Foundation Board of Directors Chair Jeri Kinnear said, “It is a great honor to announce that Pam Stasney and her family have endowed a scholarship to recognize the contributions that her parents, Helen K. and Phillip A. Lohec, have made to our community. Galveston College is so fortunate to have patrons such as the Stasneys, who like the college believe and support the philosophy of “opening doors and changing lives.”

“On behalf of our students, faculty and staff at Galveston College, I want to express my sincere gratitude for the creation of this endowed scholarship that will benefit our students for years to come,” said Dr. Myles Shelton, president of Galveston College. “We are thankful for the Lohec family and the positive impact they’ve had on the Galveston community.”

Currently, there are several scholarships available for students interested in Galveston College.

Application information is available on the college website at https://gc.edu/financial-aid/available-aid/scholarships/ and from the Office of Financial Aid at finaid@gc.edu.

To make a gift to the Galveston College Foundation, please contact Dr. Van Patterson at (409) 944-1205 or vpatterson@gc.edu.

Galveston College Receives $750,000 in Texas Reskilling Support Fund Initiative

Galveston College Receives $750,000 in Texas Reskilling Support Fund Initiative  

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) on Dec. 18 awarded Galveston College $750,000 as part of the first round of awards totaling $18.1 million to Texas higher education institutions under the Texas Reskilling Support Fund grant program.
Through a competitive process, 40 applicants representing 49 institutions were selected for the awards.

Reskilling grants will allow Texas public colleges, technical schools and universities to provide financial assistance to Texas students to cover tuition and fees. The grants are designed to support displaced Texas workers who need to reskill or upskill to get back into the workforce, and to support students who have previously stopped out of higher education in completing a postsecondary credential. The program is supported by a portion of the $175 million allocation to the THECB from the Governor’s Emergency Educational Relief (GEER) Fund

“Galveston College is honored to be selected as one of only 40 applicants in the state for first-round funding for this important workforce development initiative,” said Dr. Myles Shelton, college president. “Our workforce programs are prepared to move full-speed ahead in the coming months to assist in retooling and reskilling our local workforce in response to the needs of our region’s economy.” 

“These strategic investments, supported by Governor Abbott and our Texas legislative leadership, will play an important role in supporting Texas students and driving the recovery of the Texas economy. We can help students who have previously stopped out of higher education without completing a postsecondary credential as well as help displaced Texas workers who need to reskill and upskill and complete a higher education credential so they can rejoin the workforce and get back on their feet,” said Commissioner of Higher Education Harrison Keller. “Our Texas institutions are making significant commitments to create programs that keep more students on track to enter the workforce with the high-value credentials and education that tomorrow’s economy will demand.”

“Our greatest focus is and always has been providing the best opportunities for our student-athletes,” stated Dr. Christopher Parker, NJCAA president and CEO. “Through a unified effort from our Presidential Advisory Council, the Board of Regents and leadership staff, our most recent plan of action provides a path that keeps our student-athletes competing at the highest level with proper safety measures in place. As we move forward as an association, we will continue to provide opportunities for our student-athletes, coaches, and all those involved with the NJCAA to be safe and successful.”

For spring sports, including baseball and softball, competition remains intact with minor adjustments to dates. The fall practice schedule will include a maximum of 60 consecutive calendar days for practice and scrimmages from Sept. 5 to Nov. 15.

Galveston College announces plans for summer classes

Galveston College President Myles Shelton announced today that all May mini-semester and summer credit and noncredit classes will be delivered online, with the exception of certain technical courses and programs that require hands-on instruction that cannot be delivered online but can be delivered face to face in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.

Examples of programs that may require hands-on or face-to-face instruction include shop, laboratory and clinical segments of courses and programs in health science, nursing, emergency medical services, law enforcement, welding and other applied technology areas.

“During the rapidly changing circumstances of the last several weeks, our country, state and community took actions that were designed to protect us from COVID-19,” Dr. Shelton said. “It was no different at Galveston College, as we worked to create the opportunities for teaching and learning to continue while also working to keep students, faculty, staff and the community safe during this pandemic.”

On March 23, all classes at Galveston College moved online for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester. Academic and student support services, such as the library, tutoring, counseling and advising, admissions, registration and financial aid, also are offered online, by telephone and by email.

“I want to commend our students, faculty and staff for their flexibility, adaptability and perseverance this semester,” Dr. Shelton said. “I am especially proud of our students, as they have continued in their studies and have committed to completing their programs of study even in the face of the hurdles and curves that they have encountered as a result of COVID-19. I commend their strength and their courage.”

The college will begin to reopen the campus on May 18 on a limited basis for students who need to complete clinical training and laboratory assignments in technical programs or technical courses.

“We will be working to comply with all appropriate CDC guidelines, as well as the directives of state and local officials,” Dr. Shelton said.

All individuals entering campus facilities are expected to use a facial mask or face covering. In addition, as students, faculty, staff and visitors enter the buildings, there will be screening stations to check for signs of COVID-19.

Once inside campus facilities, faculty, staff, students and visitors are expected to maintain an appropriate social distance, as well as to continue to use facial masks or face coverings, as appropriate and in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Registration for summer and fall classes will continue online throughout the summer. In order to plan coursework for the summer and fall, current and new students should contact the Counseling and Advising Center at advising@gc.edu.

On June 1, limited in-person admissions, financial aid and registration services will be available on campus. Other academic and student support services will continue to be available online. Faculty and staff, where possible, will continue to work remotely until July 31.

“Although we are looking forward to August, the fall semester, and a return to the normal operations of the college, we know that the COVID-19 situation is continuing to evolve and change on almost a daily basis,” Dr. Shelton said.
