Culture, Diversity Celebrated at Lone Star College-Montgomery’s Global Awareness Day

Published on: May 09, 2012

Lone Star College-Montgomery’s annual Global Awareness Day was a hit for the more than 500 attendees who explored world cultures, sports, art, ecology, and international cuisine at the event in April.

Students, staff, and faculty lined up to enjoy international cuisine provided by volunteers and local restaurants; take a shot in the Houston Dynamo’s kick-and-play inflatable; get a personal design by a talented Henna artist; and dance along with the diverse entertainment line-up that covered everything from Country-Western line dancing to German Polka to Flamenco. There was also a globally-inspired art exhibit by the LSC-Montgomery art department, as well as an interactive mural sponsored by Jerry’s Art-a-Rama.

The grand finale was a multicultural fashion show of students proudly displaying their own countries’ traditional dress. All attendees left the event with an expanded view of their world and their ability to make a difference in it.
