LSC-Honors-College-logo-2c-smallThere are exciting educational opportunities available to high achieving local high school graduates through the Honors College at Lone Star College-Montgomery. This fall, incoming freshman honors students will began coursework as Chancellor’s Fellows–a unique scholarship program within the Honors College at LSC-Montgomery that provides funding and advanced educational opportunities for a select number of students pursuing an honors associate degree.


The Chancellor’s Fellows scholarship allows 17-20 freshman students who are selected through a competitive application to pursue a unique Honors associate degree program. They receive an award package covering:

  • All tuition and fees (up to 15 credit hours per semester)
  • A book allowance of up to $600 per semester
  • A fourth semester international capstone.

In addition to pursuing an individualized honors curriculum, Fellows scholarship recipients benefit from extensive co-curricular activities, specialized advising, leadership development, civic engagement opportunities, cultural events and a participation in a close-knit learning cohort.

“Our Fellows commit to a rigorous two-year, sixty credit hour, college curriculum that includes a minimum of 27 honors credits, and results in students earning an honors associates degree,” said David Kennedy, political science professor and director of the Honors College at LSC-Montgomery.  “Lone Star College is one of the few community colleges in the country currently offering this specialized honors associates degree program. The honors degree plan incorporates a progression model, developing students’ analytical, research and presentation skills, providing engaging lecture series, and cultural activities outside of the classroom.”

Students participating in The Honors College benefit from scholarship and internship opportunities, specialized honors and transfer academic advising, early registration, smaller class sizes, honors designation on transcripts, and much more.

Incoming LSC-Montgomery freshman Tania Bahena couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity presented to her.

“This is an open door to becoming successful in my life,” Bahena said. “This isn’t just about getting a scholarship, this is a way of investing.”

As a member of the Fellows cohort who will graduate from LSC-Montgomery in 2017, Bahena knows this opportunity will have a big impact on her future as she prepares to transfer to the University of Texas at Austin.

“Aside from this scholarship allowing me to save money for after I transfer, the atmosphere of the campus itself, along with the benefits of small class sizes, will help me immensely in developing myself as a person,” Bahena said.

Choir serenades the nighttime at Lone Star College-Montgomery

choirconcert-eblast04ufThe Lone Star College-Montgomery Choir will perform its fall concert “Nightfall,” Thursday, Oct. 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Recital Hall located in building H.

The show will feature a variety of choral works centered on an evening theme. Selections will include Jonathon Dove’s spiritual classic “Seek him that maketh the seven stars” and Daniel Elder’s “Lullaby.”  “Through these songs, the choir truly shines,” said Mark Marotto, director of choral activities at LSC-Montgomery. “Every choral concert at LSC-Montgomery is special, and this selection soars to a new high. I’m so honored to bring these arrangements to the school and the community.”

Marotto will step away from directing to let LSC-Montgomery student James Davis lead the choir in his gospel favorite “Jesus is the Light,” written by V. Micheal McKay. “When Dr. Marotto first asked me to do this, I got excited,” said Davis. “Jesus is the Light is special to me because we all want to be a light shining to those who might be in a gloomy place in their life, spiritually, physically or mentally. The song is not an entertainment or a performance to me it is something that I am doing to minister, and anytime I get the chance to minister I think that that’s the most exciting opportunity you can have.”

Lone Star College kicks off the holiday season with another finely crafted and well-danced performance of Dancescape

The Lone Star College-Montgomery dance department presented its fall dance concert, Dancescape, on Tuesday, Nov. 24, at 7 p.m., in the Mainstage Theatre in the college’s Performing Arts Center (building D).DSC04297The evening’s program included a guest performance by Trenton Young. After graduating from Oak Ridge High school in 2012, Trenton enrolled at Lone Star College – Montgomery.

“Trenton had no formal training but was a natural dancer with raw talent. He took ballet, modern dance, jazz and immersed himself in our dance program. Earlier this year he auditioned for the dance program at Sam Houston State and was accepted, now he is a dance major at Sam” said LSC-Montgomery dance instructor Tiffany Nirider

Dancescape is the culmination of work done by students enrolled in the dance performance class. This class, in which students enroll for the opportunity to perform in a formal dance concert, teaches the students choreography, and then allows for rehearsing and refining it for the stage. Faculty, guest artists and students develop choreography, but students learn all of the other aspects of the creative and production process by helping with publicity, costuming, lighting design and more.

Nirider has been involved in dance for 33 years, beginning with dance instruction at 16 and moving into professional dance in 1997. She has taught at three Lone Star College campuses and also at Sam Houston State University. Her teaching repertoire includes modern, ballet, jazz, choreography, dance performance, dance appreciate, ballroom and aerobics.

DSC04362LSC-Montgomery currently offers ballet, modern dance, jazz and dance appreciation classes in addition to dance performance. Students in these courses focus on technique and artistry, while they continue to explore creativity in finding their own personal style. During the year, the dance program attends various dance festivals and performing venues.
