On the evening of Monday, April 29, 2013, the Presidential Scholars Reception and Ceremony was held in the Music Hall of Lone Star College-Montgomery. Scholarship awards were presented to students from LSC-Montgomery and to those attending partner university classes at the LSC-University Center at Montgomery. LSC-Montgomery President, Dr. Austin Lane hosted the evening with a theme of “Return on Investment”. Dr. Lane thanked the gracious donors of the scholarship funds and emphasized that their generous investment in Lone Star Students will return a very rich reward for the community overall.
LSC-University Center at Montgomery Director Dr. Kurt Czupryn and Student Services Director Dr. Debra Britton joined President Lane on stage to distribute the awards and congratulate our students.

Perrie Dunigan, Tiffaney Odewale, Margaret Ogwago, and Shemeka Clay (all Our Lady of the Lake students) received LSC-University Center at Montgomery Degree Completion Scholarships.

Margaret Finch (University of Houston-Victoria) received the LSC-University Center at Montgomery Nursing Gap Scholarship.
