Healthier U Wellness Expo and Job Fair
Annual Healthier U Wellness Expo & Job Fair: Providing Scholarships for LSC-Montgomery Students
Lone Star College-Montgomery’s 20th Annual “Healthier U” wellness expo, job fair, and golf tournament will be Wednesday, April 5, through Friday, April 7. The college’s community-wide event promotes healthier living in the community while raising funds to supply scholarships for students primarily in the nursing, radiologic technology, physical therapist assistant, fire science technology, and emergency medical technician programs.
"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 $16,500 was raised last year, enough to provide $500 scholarships for 21 and $100 to 6 students.

Businesses who offered a health-related service to the community (medical- or fitness-related, emotional well-being, or even financial health) showcased their products and services at the Wellness Expo and Job Fair on Thursday, April 6.
