SWTJC rodeo member finishes seventh in the nation
Reeves and CurrieSWTJC rodeo team members Rozlyn Reeves and Logan Currie ended their six-day run at the College National Finals Rodeo on Saturday (June 18) in Casper, Wyo.

Currie finished seventh overall in the team-roping event with a total of 100 points. He teamed up with Reno Gonzales of Hill College.

The average time for Currie was 20.7 with his best time being 5.2 in the first go round of the competition.

Reeves did not fare as well as her college teammate; in the first go round of barrel racing she tipped a barrel and later sprained her ankle in the goat-tying event, which resulted in her not able to finish the event.

While in Casper both Reeves and Currie took time from the busy schedule to spend the day with special needs children in an event named the “Exceptional Rodeo”.

“This shows them that sometimes tipping a barrel or missing a steer is not the worst thing in the world,” said Pam Angermiller, SWTJC Rodeo Coach. “I was very proud of our kids for volunteering and helping put a smile on those kids’ faces.”

Board of trustees adopt balanced budget
SWTJC trustees adopted a balanced operating budget for the 2016 fiscal year during their regular monthly meeting on Thursday (June 16) in Uvalde.

Prior to the regular meeting, trustees met in a budget workshop to go over the proposed budget in more detail.

The fiscal year 2016-2017 budget is balanced at $43,443,722 in revenue and expenditures, up $758,598 from the 2015-2016 budget.

“As always we strive to deliver a balanced budget — we have a balanced budget to present; however, in order to balance the budget we had to make some cuts,” said SWTJC President Dr. Hector Gonzales.

Margot Mata, vice president of student services reported on summer one enrollment.

According to Mata, summer one enrollment was down approximately eight percent from a year ago.
