Upcoming Event Jonathan Sprinkles on campus Mark your calendars for Wednesday, February 8th! The Office of Student Life will be hosting award-winning motivational speaker Jonathan Sprinkles at 12:30 pm in N103. Jonathan was voted Speaker of the Year (APCA), Mentor of the Year (Disney/Eastman Kodak) and Marketer of the Year (JMI, Inc). Here’s why: he’s funny; his energy keeps

audiences fully engaged, and he “keeps it real” about how anyone willing can achieve the success and lifestyle they deserve. Throughout his 10 year career, Jonathan has been consistently recognized as a well-respected and sought-after expert on elevating morale and Leading Beyond the Meeting™. The author of several books, his writings have been published internationally and are frequently quoted by industry experts. Jonathan’s helping

at their best stems from the agony he felt when he lost his father to cancer at the age of 15. Attempting to mask the pain, he gave into peer pressure and the low expectations that surround many African-American men. However, Jonathan’s spirit refused to settle for life’s second best. He graduated college from the fourth-ranked marketing program in the country.

Don’t miss this amazing speaker and friend of LSC-Tomball. For more passion for information check out www.jsprinkles. people com. The Office of Student Life will perform be giving away 100 copies of his latest book and Jonathan will be signing autographs after his presentation. Hope to see you there!

The Student Activities Board is a student run organization dedicated t o en h a n c i n g c ampus life for the LSC–Tomball student body through social, recreational, educational and cultural programs. SAB reaches out to the student body to make their college experience more enjoyable. When interviewed, Karan Kaur and Jake Foster told us how they feel about SAB.

What is SAB to you? Karan: SAB to me is an amazing organization that brings students together to learn how to work hard and create fun, new experiences. Here, new friends and memorable moments are made. SAB is something special. It teaches you about friendship, working together and having fun. Jake: SAB to me is a collaboration of students working together to promote and participate in events around campus. How has it affected your life through your involvement this past semester? Karan: When I first came to the Lone Star campus, I didn’t really know what to expect. I didn’t know that

many people on campus, and I was very shy and quiet. SAB taught me how to be more open and speak up. I met some amazing people and made some great friends. SAB really helped me with boosting my confidence level. I am not that shy person anymore. Jake: SAB has greatly affected my college experience this past semester. I have made so many amazing new friends and I found that I truly have friends who will help and support me with anything I need. What is an upcoming event that you’re excited about? Karan: All the events are so fun, but I can’t wait until the Bayou Bash (Spring Fling)! Jake: SPRING FLING!!!

Robert Downey, Jr., Jude Law, Jared Harris Warner Bros.; Directed by Guy Ritchie Rated PG-13 Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room... until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor Moriarty—and not only is he Holmes’ intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective.
