Lone Star College-Tomball recently held formal dedications for its three new state-of-the-art facilities, all of which opened in time to welcome students taking fall classes.

The Performing Arts Center, located on the east side of the LSC-Tomball campus, and the Veterinary Technology Building, located on the north side, were dedicated on September 8. At the ceremony, LSCS Chancellor Dr. Richard Carpenter, LSCS Board of Trustee member Priscilla Kelly, and LSC-Tomball President Dr. Susan Karr presided over a ceremony which was attended by over 300 people and included performances by both the LSC-Tomball Music and Drama programs. A brief ceremony in the Vet Tech building followed and refreshments were served in the Beckendorf Conference Center.

The Performing Arts Center is a two-level building designed for high-quality music and theater productions. The 30,000-square-foot facility houses a 425-seat theater with a main lobby, a formal box office, an orchestra pit, theatrical sound and lighting equipment, a green room and other professional accommodations.

The Veterinary Technology Building is a 20,000-square-foot complement to the existing Large Animal Facility. The two-story structure holds a 124-seat lecture hall; reptile, avian and small mammal rooms; 12 canine runs; prep, surgery and recovery rooms; a computer room; and other instructional amenities.

On September 13, the LSC-Tomball Health Science Building was dedicated. Dr. Carpenter, Dr. Karr, and Ms. Kelly were joined in their remarks by Tomball Regional Medical Center president and CEO Lynn LeBouef.

The LSC-Tomball Health Science Building, located near the Tomball Regional Medical Center at 700 Graham Dr., is a three-story complex with 60,000 square feet. It houses the Surgical Technology, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Nursing and Pharmacy Technology programs. The edifice contains numerous classrooms, a medical library, simulation labs, an operating room, a clean room, a sterile room and additional educational resources.
