Lone Star College System Leadership North Houston honors community leaders

The Lone Star College System Leadership North Houston honored Darcy Mingoia and Mike Sullivan during its 19th annual graduation and awards dinner held May 15.


The event was the conclusion of the 9-month program for Class XIX which began in September.


Mingoia was presented the John Pickelman Leadership North Houston Fellow Award for her impact of work and outstanding leadership qualities that benefit the entire community. Mingoia, executive director of the LSC-Foundation, helped raise more than $630,000 for LSCS student scholarships during the foundation’s recent StarGala 2014. Mingoia is a graduate of LNH Class V in 2000.


Harris County Tax-Assessor Collector Mike Sullivan was also recognized with the LNH Alumni Distinguished Community Leader award which is presented to a LNH alumnus who goes above and beyond, has the quality of empowering and inspiring others, and has made significant contributions in the north Harris County community. Sullivan, who was selected from five finalists, received his associate of arts degree from LSC-Kingwood in 2011 and is a graduate of LNH Class VI in 2001.


“I cannot think of two more deserving people,” said Ray Laughter, LSC vice chancellor, external affairs. “Darcy and Mike’s efforts help pave the way for future generations to find success and carry on the charge of leadership. We are lucky to have such strong advocates for our area.”


There were 27 participants in Class XIX and they now join the almost 600 LNH alumni who are learning more about key issues facing our community, developing relationships with other leaders in the north Houston area, making a difference in the future of the community in which they live, and emerging as leaders rather than followers.

Leadership North Houston, formed in 1995, is the region’s premier resource for leadership development and civic education designed to enhance and leverage leadership potential within all sectors of the north Houston community. Developing civic leadership that is effective, knowledgeable, and engaged is the purpose of this dynamic and interactive program.
