I really enjoyed working with Sonya over the past 5 years. She was a caring instructor who always went above and beyond for her students. She was a very hard working and loyal person. We worked closely with one another on the CASP conference down in Galveston a couple years back. I have lots of great memories of laughing with Sonya. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Much love to her family.
My condolences to your family and friends. I will miss the warmth of your smile and all of our inside jokes. Rest easy my friend. You will never be forgotten.
I knew Sonya as a neighbor, always a smile and cheerful hello... may God wrap his arms around her family and give them comfort in knowing she is at peace.
I am blessed to have known her. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the family.
I sat with Sonya several times at college functions. What fun she was! While I did not know her well, it was always a pleasure to see her bright smile and sunny laugh. I am sorry for your loss.

To the family (and especially to Shawna), I was so sorry to hear about Sonya's passing. She was such a kind person, and I enjoyed serving on committees with her. I am sure you will miss her. Know that you are receiving thoughts and blessings for those who knew Sonya.
Sonya was a great inspiration to us all. She was an excellent instructor and she gave her all with everything she did. I know we will all miss her very much--the college will not be the same without her around. I wish much love to all of her family during this time.
I worked with Sonya for many years and learned so much for her. She was so kind and always willing to help in any way. I will miss her! Praying for the family.
Sweet Sonya, you always be in my prayers.
I will miss you so much.

I only knew Ms. Sonya briefly. Her colleagues truly shed light on who Sonya really was as a person, co-worker, and instructor of San Jac students. I worked with Sonya’s sister Shawna, and every word shared about Sonya describes Shawna. A sweet spirit, and contagious smile, and a willingness to assist and work well with others.
Shawna, may the love and comfort of our Lord Jesus Christ be with Sonya’s son as this is a great loss to him. May God carry you and other family members through this time of grief. God’s timing is neither early nor late. He called her name, and Sonya responded willingly. Praise God!
May you find comfort at this time
I am very sorry to hear about Sonya. I will have your family in my prayers.
The San Jacinto community was blessed to have Sonya. I had the opportunity to interact with Sonya during my time in the New Faculty Academy. She overflowed with warmth and patience as we became a part of this community. She empowered those around her while sharing her laughter in the process. She maintained standards while seeing the needs of the individual. Her impact goes well beyond College Prep. She has made each of her peers, from across all disciplines, better teachers. May she rest in peace.
I briefly knew Sonya, but the time we were acquainted, I was very appreciative of her willingness to assist. It was my first opportunity in teaching a GUST course at San Jacinto. After hearing Sonya speak in a faculty training, I knew I wanted her to be my mentor. After asking her to be my mentor, she responded yes without any hesitation. She was patient, informative, and attentive. She wanted to make sure I was well supported. I thank God He allowed our paths to cross. I could not have taught my first GUST course without her support. My prayers are with the family.
I have been thinking of Sonya and her son daily since I learned of her passing. As a professional and a colleague for 9 years, Sonya has a lot of wisdom for me to learn from.
In my Bible study class yesterday, I asked the Bible study leader, "Where is Sonya now?" He did not answer me directly. But now I know the answer, "Sonya is in heaven now."
Sonya was a co-worker here at San Jacinto college.
I will miss seeing her bright smile when I walked by her office.
She was truly a bright light.
Every time I spoke to Sonya, she was funny, kind, friendly, and cheerful. She was a dedicated educator and a fabulous colleague. I feel lucky to have known her, and I will miss her greatly.
I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the family of Sonya Prince. May The Most High send you comfort and blessings on this day and the days to come.
God bless you
Her kindness will never be forgotten by all of those who came in contact with her. She lit a light in so many people that will never be put out. My sympathies to her family. She will be forever missed.
Sonya was my colleague for 13 years. During that time, we laughed a lot and worked hard to make a way for at-risk students to have a meaningful learning experience. Sonya was dedicated to student success and to education as a way for students to realize a better life for themselves and their families. She and I worked on so many projects together, and she will be sorely missed. Our College Prep department has lost a valued friend and colleague, lost but never to be forgotten.
