Annual Healthier U Wellness Expo & Job Fair: Providing Scholarships for Lone Star College-Montgomery Students
Lone Star College-Montgomery’s “Healthier U” wellness expo, and job fair will be Wednesday, April 3 and Thursday, April 4. The college’s community-wide event promotes healthier living in the community while raising funds to supply scholarships for all students who actively participate in the annual event."It is not easy for students to begin a professional program in healthcare due to overwhelming financial and timing commitments," said Joe Garza, Healthier U event coordinator. "So, for the past 20 years the faculty and staff at LSC-Montgomery have joined together with the community to sponsor this major event to help lessen that burden some of our students bear.”
According to Garza, more than $20,000 was raised last year, enough to provide $500 scholarships for 20 students.
