TOMBALL, Texas – Seven LSC-Tomball students will be recognized during an upcoming luncheon and awards ceremony for completing the 2016-2017 Lone Star Leadership College. The luncheon will begin at noon, followed by the awards ceremony at 12:30 p.m., April 21, in the boardroom of the Lone Star College Training and Development Center in The Woodlands.
Lone Star Leadership College provides an opportunity to educate and mentor emerging student leaders for diverse roles of leadership, linking Lone Star College System and the community. The goal of the program is to develop and enhance the leadership skills of its students, while encouraging an appreciation by the students for giving back to the community where they live.
LSC-Tomball students who successfully completed the Lone Star Leadership College for 2016-2017 are:
- Arlene Alvarez
- Brittany Anderson
- Amanda Donaho
- Ana Duran
- Chris Johnson
- Kaylee Moore
- Kaylee Sampson
“This program offers a unique opportunity for Lone Star College students to interact with community leaders and develop a fundamental understanding of what it takes to become an effective leader,” said Kay Fitzsimons, LSC Community Leadership and Engagement executive director. “Students can also use this experience as a resume builder to demonstrate work outside the traditional classroom. This will allow students to recognize the leader’s role in the local community and how to initiate change.”
During the six-month program, students explored and examined the local economy, government, arts, culture, and more in interactive monthly sessions. Participants also received applicable leadership skills training based on The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership in The Student Leadership Challenge by James Kouzes and Barry Posner, as well as the opportunity to work in a team environment during a community service project.
The program is offered at no cost to participants and begins in September during the fall semester continuing through the subsequent spring semester and ending in April. Applications for 2017-2018 leadership college will be available online and through the office of student life during the summer.
