With a record-setting 20,384 students enrolled at Lone Star College-CyFair this fall and a critical need for trained technical workers in the Houston region, several technology, workforce program and facility upgrades are earmarked in a LSC $485 million bond on the November election ballot.
Join LSC-CyFair President Dr. Audre Levy Oct. 28 for a community forum to learn more about the technology upgrades, building renovations and further development of workforce programs planned with money in this referendum.
Among the projects earmarked for LSC-CyFair are:
- An Advanced Technology Center for Computer Information Technology and Visual Communications
- Renovations to CNC Machining and Welding workforce education facilities at LSC-Cypress Center
- A new 75,000-square-foot Instructional building
- An additional 750 parking spaces
It is estimated that 63 percent of all jobs will require postsecondary training by 2018 and students with an associate degree earn, on average, 25 percent more than high school graduates.
The numbers say it all. Attending LSC-CyFair is more affordable than other state institutions. Attending LSC saves students and their families thousands of dollars per semester.
The community forum will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 28 in the Center for Academic and Student Affairs Building, Room 110.
