Juneteenth, or Emancipation Day, celebrates the historic day in 1865 when all enslaved people in Texas were declared free.

Why Texas specifically? In 1861, tension over slavery prompted 11 Southern states to secede from the Union, forming the Confederate States of America. This split sparked the Civil War.

At that time, there were 3.5 million enslaved people in the U.S., but by January 1863, President Lincoln, rebelling against the Confederacy, issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed enslaved people in all states and ultimately brought about the surrender of the Confederate forces.

Knowing news traveled slowly, many Southern slaveholders moved further west to Texas to outrun Union troops. By the end of the war, the number of slaves in Texas had grown from 182K to 250K. It wasn’t until 1865 when General Granger arrived in Galveston and issued General Order No. 3 that ALL slaves were declared free.

Happy Juneteenth, aka Emancipation Day, from all of us at Dallas College!

Overcoming a dictatorship, moving across the world, a language barrier and so much more to find his passion and excel to achieve his dreams. Dallas College student Ning has an inspiring story no matter who you are. Read about it in his own words below 👇

"I moved from Burma, also known as Myanmar, to Malaysia in 2012 to escape the oppressive dictatorship and civil unrest. Myanmar was a difficult place for Christian believers like my family due to the authoritarian government. We faced hardships, limited freedoms and a lack of educational opportunities. Moving to Malaysia was a dangerous journey, as we escaped the dictatorship when I was about 12 years old. My dad had already moved to Malaysia, and we reunited with him there, where I learned English for the first time. In 2015, we relocated to Dallas through the United Nations Refugee Agency. Starting seventh grade in the U.S. with a significant language barrier was challenging, but ESL teachers helped me improve. After graduating from North Garland High School in 2021, I came to Dallas College, initially majoring in engineering but later switching to business once I developed a passion for photography and videography. I worked to build a business while also working part-time jobs to support my studies. This dedication led to an internship opportunity with FC Dallas for the 2024 season. Now, I'm finishing my associate degree and considering further education at a four-year university while planning my future career in photography and videography."

Successful students deserve their moment in the spotlight. At this month's board of trustees meeting, the board, along with Chancellor Lonon, recognized an art student and an esports student-athlete champion for their accomplishments this past Spring 2024 semester.

Class of 2024 graduate Soraya Burgos earned high honors for her painting, "Sonsonate, 2a Calle Poniente," which took home second place overall in the international competition of the League for Innovation last semester. The inspiration for the award-winning piece came from a trip to her family’s native El Salvador where she snapped a photo of day-to-day life.

Cedar Valley's Khoi Nguyen is truly an esports superstar. Nguyen captured the National Junior College Athletic Association eSports FC24 Tier 1 National Champion Series. It is the second straight semester Nguyen has won a national title, having captured the Tier 3 FIFA championship in the fall. When he's not practicing his craft, he is busy taking computer science courses.

Please join us in congratulating two outstanding Dallas College students!

“I was at a big state school and decided I didn’t want to return due to some personal reasons and experiences. But coming back home and going to school closer to where I live, five minutes from home, was the most fitting option. I’m starting to take business classes here and plan to have a business degree that will allow me to continue learning in the real world. I see myself working for a large corporation in order to gain further business knowledge. Ultimately, my dream is to start a dog breeding business. I am so passionate about dogs, and they bring a lot of happiness to my life and to others, so I figure I can help other families experience that joy while turning that passion into a career."

Please join us in sending best retirement wishes to a Dallas College pioneer. A proven barrier buster, trustee Charletta Rogers Compton joined the Dallas College Board of Trustees in 2000. Embodying the values and mission of our college, she even began her educational journey at Mountain View in 1974.

Over the last 24 years, the District 7 representative has left her mark on the Dallas College family.

- Became the first Black female to serve as board chair (2014-2018).

- Played a crucial role in passing two bond packages, with a combined amount of $1.5 billion, and she voted to reduce learning hurdles and combine our district into one institution in 2020.

- Earned the Minority Business News "Women Who Mean Business" award in 2000.

- Recipient of the DFW Minority Business Development Council & Minority Business News 1997 Helping Hands Award.

- Honored with the Dallas County Heritage Society Award.

Congratulations, trustee Compton, on your retirement, and thank you for your relentless commitment to providing accessible education to all!
