Weyerhaeuser Awards Grant to Upgrade SEMCC Auditorium

The SE McCurtain County Campus (SEMCC) was recently awarded a $10,000 grant from Weyerhaeuser – Idabel Lumber Mill. The grant will fund much needed upgrades to the auditorium audio and visual equipment.

“The goal is to make the auditorium end-user friendly, allow the integration of the sound booth to an accessible location, add a 16:9 format high definition screen, and a laser projector,” SEMCC Director Kendra Gross said. “These upgrades will be of great benefit to the campus and community groups who utilize the space.”

The grant money will be used for purchasing the equipment, parts, and supplies for the project.

Dr. Chris McAllister, Professor at Eastern-MCC and some of his Fall 2018 semester biology and zoology students attended the Oklahoma Academy of Science Field Meeting on 22 September 2018 at Beaver’s Bend State Park.

Ninety-four students and several mentors from various Oklahoma colleges and universities attended.  The purpose of the meeting was to teach students field techniques in aquatic invertebrates, botany, entomology, fermentation, geology, herpetology, ichthyology, mammalogy, mycology, and ornithology.

Dr. Mac and his crew led the ichthyology field trip. They were successful in seining several fishes, including logperches, brook silversides, longear sunfishes, largemouth basses, grass pickerel, bluegill, and mosquitofishes.

In addition, they observed a Sequoyah slimy salamander, Plethodon sequoyah, which occurs nowhere else on Earth except at Beaver’s Bend.  Students gained an appreciation of the ecology and natural history of many animals and generally had a great time in the outdoors.

Best find of trip, Sequoyah slimy salamander, Plethodon sequoyah. An endemic salamander found nowhere else on Earth!
