Conroe EDC Presents Scholarships to LSC-Conroe Center Students

ScholarshipThe Greater Conroe Economic Development Council recently presented five Lone Star College-Conroe Center students with a $500 scholarship each.

“The support from the GCEDC and our other civic partners makes a huge impact on LSC-Conroe Center and ultimately, the local community,” said Dr. Austin Lane, president of Lone Star College-Montgomery. “These scholarships go a long way toward helping these students complete the training and education needed to be successful in their careers.
