Students head to their classes at Lone Star College-Montgomery campus. LCS-M is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary this semester.

Twenty years ago, Montgomery College opened its doors for the first time to 3,200 students from The Woodlands and Montgomery County, when then Texas Governor George W. Bush led the college’s dedication ceremony.

The college, now known as Lone Star College-Montgomery, has come a long way, serving 13,000 credit-earning students this fall with an additional 4,000 students pursuing non-credit “continuing education” courses. The local campus will publicly celebrate its 20th anniversary on campus from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 3.

“This college was founded on very high academic standards. The founding faculty were very carefully selected for their credentials and their devotions to high academic standards. It has been a focus here at Montgomery,” said college president Rebecca Riley. click here for complete story
