Learning (ALL), a program for the 50-plus retired or semi-retired communities, celebrated its 15th year last month.
“The support the community gives to this program means so much to us,” said Dr. Rebecca Riley, president of LSC-Montgomery. “This celebration confirms that support.”
Around 150 current and former members, community supporters and college officials, as well as ALL board members showed up for the celebration, which comprised of a lecture covering the history of the program, a presentation of program highlights over the past 15 years, live music and light refreshments.
“This amazing program has been shaped, designed and driven by its members, and the community we serve, over the past 15 years,” said Steven Gorman, ALL program manager at LSC-Montgomery. “As the first of the Lone Star College campuses to establish the academy, we are honored to share in this celebration with our community.”
ALL is a membership organization filled with lectures, seminars and discussions, with classes covering a variety of topics such as art, computer technology, personal growth, languages, history, travel and more.
Each of the six colleges within Lone Star College offers continuing education for older, active adults through the ALL organization. Course offerings and program events vary with each campus.
A small annual membership fee of $35 allows members to take academy courses free of charge or at a minimal rate. The annual membership lasts from September 1 to August 31.
