FVA to award scholarship in honor of esteemed art professor Arscott
SFA’s Friends of the Visual Arts will award a newly established $1,000 scholarship this spring in honor of longtime art and filmmaking professor William E. Arscott.
Arscott, who recently turned 83, is SFA’s longest-tenured faculty member with more than 54 years teaching at the university.
This scholarship is one of many the FVA has established to honor retiring art instructors.
The Arscott scholarship will be awarded on an annual basis to a junior, senior or graduate student who is working toward an art degree with a major area of study in filmmaking.
Breakfast social for faculty and staff scheduled for Wednesday
The next SFA Faculty and Staff Breakfast is scheduled for 7 to 9 a.m. Wednesday in the East College Dining Hall.
For a special price of $3, SFA faculty and staff are invited to enjoy an all-you-care-to-eat breakfast while catching up with colleagues and making new campus contacts. Help spread the word about this event, and invite your SFA colleagues to join you.
The monthly Faculty and Staff Breakfast is brought to you by the SFA Social Events Team in the spirit of our “SFA Envisioned” strategic plan, which includes fostering a culture of engagement within our campus community.

Forestry students complete conservation projects in Montgomery County
Members of SFA’s student chapter of the Society of American Foresters recently collaborated with a number of partners, including Rotary International, the Texas A&M Forest Service and Trees For Houston, to promote conservation and urban tree health in Montgomery County.
Forestry students Chris Longman, Tristan Clayton, Brian Smith and Andre Saenz planted 60 trees, including ten pollinator specific flowering trees at Conroe ISD’s Runyan Elementary School.
Students also worked at W.G. Jones State Forest, one of the nation’s largest working urban forests, where they painted green bands on 20 red-cockaded woodpecker cavity trees and constructed 25 erosion control structures for use on the property.
