Lone Star College-North Harris was recently selected as Company of the Year at this year's North Houston-Greenspoint Chamber of Commerce Starlight Gala on Saturday, Nov. 15 at the Crown Plaza Hotel.
"This award honors a company that has a strong commitment and support for the chamber," says Reggie Gray, president of NHGCC. "This past year, LSC-North Harris helped us develop one of the most unique partnerships, which included providing space for the chamber office at the college's Greenspoint Center location in addition to creating the Center for Business Development, which is comprised of the chamber, Small Business Development Center, Lone Star Corporate College and LSC-North Harris. That partnership established the chamber as one the top resource service centers within the Southeast Texas and helped pioneer a new chamber of commerce business model for the future."
LSC-North Harris has been working with the chamber ever since it was established in 1986. According to Gray, the chamber has been recognizing and honoring companies as well as individuals for the past 10 years.
"In addition to providing quality higher education, Lone Star College-North Harris has been active in supporting North Houston businesses and organizations since the college was first established more than 35 years ago," says Dr. Steve Head, president of LSC-North Harris. "Our newest venture provides services to all businesses in the area including entrepreneurial, start-up, existing small (less than 500 employees), large (more than 500 employees) and new-to-area businesses from a central site-Lone Star College-Greenspoint Center located on the North Sam Houston Parkway."
