College of the Mainland theatre majors will hark back to the glory days of radio theatre April 26 at 7 p.m. with a public show featuring action-packed “Flash Gordon” “The Shadow,” “Sgt. Preston of the Yukon” and “Frontier Gentleman” episodes.

Students will step up to microphones and relive classic episodes complete with sound effects. The show is open to the public and a "pay what you can" event.

“It’ll be a lot of fun. We hope to take it to the senior home across the street later in the semester as well,” said H. Russ Brown, COM theatre artistic director.

MyBayArea Radio will live broadcast the show.

Explore Chinese politics and their impact on U.S./China relations in a free lecture April 25 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the College of the Mainland Learning Resources Center Auditorium.

Dr. Minxin Pei will offer his expertise on U.S./China relations as part of the COM International Speakers Series.

“Given that President Trump has placed U.S. trade policy at the center of discussion, Dr. Pei will address our trade policy with China,” said COM government professor John Presnall. “He’s an academic specialist in political science who has spent decades studying and writing on this topic.”

Among other topics, Pei will discuss the controversy surrounding the Chinese government's policy in the South China Sea.

Kaci Maris, of Dickinson, is used to competition for the highest grades.

“My kids compete with me, especially my son in fourth grade. They want to see my report cards. Whoever loses has to pay for Chuck E. Cheese's (though Dad usually pays),” said Maris.

Now Maris has been selected in a nationwide competition as a 2017 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Gold Scholar. She was among 1,800 applicants and is one of only four students in Texas to receive a $1,500 scholarship.

College of the Mainland is accepting applications for the ExxonMobil Community College Petrochemical Initiative Scholarship. Students are eligible to receive up to $2,500 to cover books, fees and tuition.
