Congratulations to the Lone Star College-Montgomery Class of 2016 who will be recognized for their achievements at the commencement ceremony Friday, May 13, at 6 p.m., at The Woodlands Church-Fellowship Campus.
LSC-Montgomery is awarding more than 1,300 associate degrees or certificates this year and approximately 350 students are expected to attend the commencement ceremony.
Twenty-five students will be graduating with various distinctions from the Honors College. Fifteen of those will be the first to receive an honors associate degree. LSC is one of the few community colleges in the nation to offer an honors associate degree program.
Graduates at the ceremony will hear from Juan Lebron, LSC-Montgomery counselor and Riley Young, a class of 2016 graduate.
Lebron is originally from Patillas, Puerto Rico. He has been with LSC-Montgomery for the past nine years. He enjoys helping students design a path for transferring to another university or entering the workforce. Lebron is currently a doctoral student in educational leadership at Sam Houston State University.
He holds a master’s degree in clinical social work from Florida State University and an education specialist graduate degree in counseling from Florida Atlantic University. Lebron earned an Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees in human services from Hillsborough Community College. Lebron and his wife Ayana enjoy traveling and raising their 12-year-old son Jiovann, 10-year-old son Jamian and 7-year-old daughter Anaya.
Young is a native of Spring, Texas. He was homeschooled and came to Lone Star College-Montgomery in the summer of 2014. Young attributes his accomplishments to his faith, family and the LSC-Montgomery faculty.
Young plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in communications with a minor in political science at either the University of Houston or Sam Houston State University. His goal is to become a press secretary. Young completed a political internship during his time at LSC-Montgomery.
“Getting to apply what I learned in the classroom while actively participating in politics gave me a lot of confidence in my education and my career path,” said Young. “I hope to use and build upon my experiences and accomplish the dreams I've had since I was a child."
Young is very excited to address the audience at graduation. “The honor to speak to my peers and mentors in the commencement speech is a great treasure I hold close to my heart. I hope to be an example of the growth that students can achieve at LSC-Montgomery."
Dr. Rebecca Riley, LSC-Montgomery president, will preside over the ceremony.
