TOMBALL, TX – Everyone is the same—only different. On October 25, 9 a.m.  ?  2 p.m., Lone Star College-Tomball will host its 13th Annual Disability Awareness Day, a day of exploration, education and celebration of those differences with students, employees and community members. The event is free and open to the public. 

For the first half of the program, high school students will be given a tour of the campus and introduced to the many ways LSC-Tomball supports its students with disabilities. In addition, college and high school personnel and community members discover how higher education is striving to help ensure the future success of individuals with special needs.

LSC-Tomball is committed to ensuring that equal access to its educational programs, activities, and facilities occurs for students with disabilities.
