September brings a busy membership
drive, resulting in 725 members for the
UH Student Education Association. For
the fourth consecutive year, the UH chapter is the nation's largest Student NEA
and TSEA chapter.
In October, SEA entertains over 300
educators at an open house in the home
of its sponsor, Dr. Esther Marion Nelson.
During October and early November,
members spend many long, tiresome hours
building a large float, "The Arch of
Triumph," for Homecoming.
December finds this active group participating in Cougar Christmasland. Many
members travel to Corpus Christi, site of
the TSTA state convention, and later attend the group's district meeting in Houston.
Among other activities this year, many
SEA members are appearing in numerous
educational programs and events throughout the state.
Each year the group sponsors a revolving Student Loan Fund for prospective teachers, with the 1961 fund reaching $1200.
Besides acquainting students with teaching as a profession, SEA assists graduates
in locating teaching positions not only in
Houston, but also in other areas. This year
the UH chapter has a teacher recruitment
program that is receiving widespread recognition from the national association.
MEMBERS include Jim McClain, Judy Kennedy, Dorothy Martin, Anne Dancy, Joyce Kennedy, William
Brooks, Prentiss Crowe, Dolrece Camp, Jim McLean, Diane Gaitz, Lei Lani Jones and Pat Cansler.
