Lone Star College breaks ground on LSC-Houston North Fallbrook
HOUSTON, TX – Lone Star College officially broke ground on its newest location, LSC-Houston North Fallbrook.
“This partnership between Lone Star College and Fallbrook Church is a shining example of what can happen when institutions work together,” said Stephen C. Head, Ph.D., LSC chancellor. “I want to personally thank Pastor Michael Pender for his commitment to provide accessible higher education in this community.”
LSC-Houston North Fallbrook, which is scheduled to open fall 2020, will be part of LSC-Houston North, the newest college in the Lone Star College system. LSC-Houston North incorporates four locations consisting of LSC-Houston North Fairbanks, LSC-Houston North Greenspoint, LSC-Houston North Victory and LSC-Houston North Fallbrook.
“This will benefit many generations for years to come,” said city of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner. “Thank you Lone Star College for your vision and for bringing education where the students are.”
LSC-Houston North Fallbrook joins its sister locations, bringing highly-developed programs to each site in addition to core courses to earn Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees.
“This is a direct result of Lone Star College and Fallbrook Church working together in spirit and with a vision,” said U.S. Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee. “You are making sure our young people have access to education.”
LSC-Houston North Fallbrook students will have the opportunity to take courses in morning, afternoon or evening block schedules as well as weekend programs that will allow them to complete degrees with classes Friday afternoon, Saturdays and online.
“This is a great day, not only for Lone Star College, but for this community as well,” said Quentin A. Wright, Ed.D., LSC-Houston North president. “These students will be able to take advantage of small class sizes with no class having more than 20 students.”
