The Student Government Association of LSC-Tomball serves as the umbrella organization representing the interests of all registered student organizations on campus and acts as the liaison between the organizations and campus leadership. Regardless of a student's involvement in clubs or other programs on campus, all students of LSC-Tomball are considered a member of the Student Government Association and have the ability to play an important role in the governance of student clubs and advocacy on behalf of the student body.
The LSC-Tomball SGA leadership also represent the student body of the campus at a local, system, regional, and state level by participating in such activities as meeting with legislators during Community College Day at the Capitol, joining as a part of the Campus Leadership Council, system activities and planning for the SGA organizations, and membership in regional and state SGA organizations.

The LSC-Tomball SGA Officers are elected annually by the student body and represent a diverse array of interests, club involvements, and backgrounds.
The Executive Council of the LSC-Tomball SGA is made up of the 6 elected officers; President, Executive Vice President, Vice President of Programs, Vice President of Outreach and Recruitment, General Secretary, and the Finance Secretary.
The LSC-Tomball SGA is, at its heart, a service organization for students and all of our campus and community members. Each year the SGA leadership and students look for ways to actively represent the idea of community that is inherent in being a community college.
Some projects have included:
Classroom Libraries Projects
The LSC-Tomball SGA raised funds with the help of Target, Academy, the Greater Tomball Area Chamber of Commerce, HCA Tomball, the faculty and staff of LSC-Tomball and other community-minded donors to partner with Scholastic Book Fairs in a project to provide classroom libraries of new children's books to Rose Hill Elementary in Tomball ISD. This service project provided approximately 40 brand new books to about 35 classrooms, giving students direct access to a variety of books that are popular and that they want to read. The SGA also was able to provide 40 brand new bean bag chairs and dozens of pillows and cushions to create comfortable reading spaces to encourage literacy and develop a love of reading. This project had a financial impact of approximately seventeen thousand dollars.
Community College Day at the Capitol
The LSC-Tomball SGA officers traveled to the Texas Capitol with nearly 70 other students, the largest delegation from any of the Lone Star College System campuses, during the 2019 legislative session to meet with the state legislators who represent the students that attend LSC-Tomball and Creekside Center. The officers and students met with Representatives Bell, Leman, Oliverson, and Swanson as well as Senators Creighton, Bettencourt, and Kolkhorst. Students were able to share their personal stories about how community college has had an impact on their lives with the legislators who actually represent them.
Each year students from the LSC-Tomball student body serve on the standing committees for the SGA (Nominations and Elections, Administration and Bylaws, and Events) to propose amendments to the constitution, recommend rules regarding elections, and bring ideas about how to create events that will better engage the student body.
Held on Zoom or WebEx. Please keep an eye out for an email from SGA Advisor Cory Colby to join the meetings.
