Very soon, thousands of Stephen F. Austin State University students will be heading to Nacogdoches to take on the upcoming Fall semester. With that in mind, the Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce is reminding area businesses to fly the SFA colors proudly.  Businesses that have signs and/or marquees in front of their establishment are likewise asked to welcome the Jacks to town through some sore of message on their signage.

Very soon the Nacogdoches Chamber of Commerce and the SFA Driving Jacks will partner to begin the process of replacing worn or faded flags. In addition, a campaign to enlist new flag sales will begin. If you want to be contacted about this, please call the Chamber at 936 560-5533.
