On Thursday, Jan. 21, State Representative Sylvester Turner, Lone Star College System Board of Trustees Chair, Randy Bates, J.D., Lone Star College-North Harris President, Dr. Steve Head and other LSC-North Harris administrators invited the Aldine ISD’s Victory Early College parents and members of the community to an open forum at the LSC-Carver Center campus to gather input and answer community questions regarding the planning and visioning for the soon-to-be-built Lone Star College-Victory Center. The center will be located in the Acres Home and Inwood Forest communities. Architects with Archi Technics/3 and Perspectiva were on hand to answer questions about the design of the new 85,000 square-foot facility, which is envisioned to be a center for workforce and academic preparation, economic and community development, and a focal point for citizenship training and community events. Future community forums will be planned during the upcoming spring semester. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin summer 2010.
