Upper Right: Dustin Moore, The Woodlands, a student in Lone Star College-Montgomery art instructor Mary Castagna’s class, demonstrates his new backpack, which he made entirely out of paper cups and tape as part of the final class project of the semester. The students were enrolled in Art Appreciation, which is also offered for both the upcoming summer and fall semesters at the college.
Lower Right: Dr. Craig Livingston, right, demonstrates proper launch technique to Zachary Stewart, Magnolia, a student in Livingston’s U.S. Military History class. Students in the class built Waco CG-4 U.S. combat gliders from World War II and held a contest on the final day of the semester to see which plane would glide the furthest. “History is more than mental exercise; it is also tactile and experiential,” said Dr. Livingston. “The students linked the models that they built to their research papers.” LSC-Montgomery offers a variety of history courses in both the upcoming summer and fall semesters.
LSC-Montgomery is located at 3200 College Park Drive, one-half mile west of Interstate 45, between Conroe and The Woodlands. For more information about the college, call 936.273.7000, or visit www.LoneStar.edu/montgomery.
