Lone Star College is introducing the “Tu Camino” (Your Path) program to help promote the value of higher education in the Hispanic community. Tu Camino is Spanish for “Your Path.”
“Lone Star College looks forward to working with Univision Houston to expand educational opportunities for all students,” said Mario K. Castillo, J.D., LSC Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel. “We are excited to offer this new program to help people improve their lives.”
LSC has partnered with Univision Houston, the area’s leading Spanish-language media company, to conduct an essay contest themed “How a Lone Star College Scholarship will help me to a better career.” One essay writer will be selected and awarded an LSC scholarship through LSC Foundation.
“We want to motivate Latino Adults in the Houston area, who are post high school graduation, to attain greater education and/or certification that will enhance their career path or pursue a career shift,” said Glenn L. Coleman, Univision Houston president and general manager.
Essays will be judged on creativity and why the writer would benefit from attending Lone Star College. Visit www.BecaTuCamino.com to register and for more information.
