Shah Ardalan, president of Lone Star College-University Park, will sit in “jail” Thursday, Sept. 24, until supporters raise $1,000 for the American Heart Association.
Ardalan is serving this “sentence” in advance of hosting the association’s Northwest Harris County Heart Walk. The 5K walk takes place on Saturday, Oct. 3, at the LSC-University Park campus at State Highway 249 and Louetta Road. It is the first time that LSC-University Park has hosted the event.
“I take care of my heart for my family, friends and for the thousands of students who attend Lone Star College-University Park,” Ardalan said.
