In 2015, Dr. Lane was selected to become Lone Star College's executive vice chancellor. Dr. Rebecca Riley, a longtime faculty member and administrator from LSC-Kingwood, was chosen to be the college's fourth president.
Some major focal points as the college looks to its future include the development of an LSC-Magnolia Center, which was one of the projects from the 2014 bond. Additionally, the college is expanding workforce programs at its Conroe Center, and constructing a large lab/building for its growing Live Entertainment Technology program. The opening of the I-45-to-242 flyover has created challenges for the college's traffic flow, so expanding the entry and exit points is another project that the bond addressed.
Dr. Riley is focused on student success and retention, maintaining faculty excellence, and helping to lead Lone Star College's 20|20 cultural transformation process.
During the college's recent 20th anniversary celebration, she harkened back to the college's past – quoting founding president Dr. Law's catchphrase, "The sun is always shining at Lone Star College-Montgomery because we have the opportunity to change people's lives." As she listed some of the college's major accomplishments and milestones over the past 20 years (400 percent enrollment increase; 10,000+ degrees and certificates awarded; millions of dollars in scholarships funded; almost doubling the original square footage of the campus), she aptly noted:
"There are very few entities in our area that have had such an impact – economically and socially – on so many people. I have no doubt that 20 years from now – 200 years from now – LSC-Montgomery will continue to serve the community in new and exciting ways."
