Loomis-Price, an award-winning professor, has been teaching full-time in LSC-Montgomery’s biotechnology program since 2002. He is faculty senate vice president and the faculty advisor for the biofuels working group, a student organization that produces diesel fuel from a variety of “green” sources, including reclaimed waste vegetable oil. Loomis-Price earned his doctoral degree in biological chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley.
 
Chrisman has been highly involved at LSC-Montgomery while pursuing her associate’s degree in music. She is president of the Student Government Association and a member of the President’s Student Advisory Council. Chrisman plans to continue her education and earn a bachelor’s degree in music education with an emphasis on vocal performance.  She hopes to combine her talent for the performing arts with her passion for traveling to work internationally as a classical vocalist, conductor, or choral director.
 
Dr. Austin A. Lane, president of LSC-Montgomery, will preside over the ceremony.
