Scholarship students honored at Lone Star College-North Harris

HOUSTON (April 26, 2022) – Lone Star College-North Harris celebrated the academic success
of more than 150 students at the Scholarship Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, April 20.
Campus leadership, along with several of the scholarship donors, were on hand to congratulate
this year’s scholarship recipients and take photos with the students. The ceremony included
remarks from current LSC-North Harris student and scholarship recipient Shiza Rubab, who
also works at the campus. Rubab spoke about the positive impact her scholarships have had on
her academic success.

“Coming from Pakistan, where recognition within the school system is a little hard to earn, the
ways of being announced a recipient, being a student spotlight in the president’s newsletters,
getting appreciated, and receiving tons of congratulations, was a vast change in the state of
mind,” Rubab said during her speech. “These scholarships served as the building blocks of my
confidence, by which I was motivated enough to join further programs like Global Scholars and
eventually work in the Business Office.”

In total, more than $149,000 in scholarships was given to 178 LSC-North Harris students. The
college currently has 34 endowments that annually yield scholarships, with another four
endowments planned for students at LSC-North Harris.

“Donors to the LSC Foundation make the work we do possible,” said Nicole Robinson Gauthier,
Executive Director, Lone Star College Foundation. “Removing financial barriers in the path of a
student’s education changes lives for generations, and we are so grateful.”

The strong support from our supporters will help us to cultivate an 18th Congressional District where everyone in it can thrive.” Edwards said. “Amanda understands the challenges that the hard-working folks of the 18th Congressional District face because she has never lost sight of who she is or where she comes from; she was born and raised right here in the 18th Congressional District of Houston,” said Kathryn McNiel, spokesperson for Edwards’ campaign. Edwards has been endorsed by Higher Heights PAC, Collective PAC, Krimson PAC, and the Brady PAC. She has also been supported by Beto O’Rourke, among many others.

As September 13th rolls around, we extend our warmest birthday wishes to the creative powerhouse, Tyler Perry, a man whose indomitable spirit and groundbreaking work have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment. With his multifaceted talents as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and director, Tyler Perry has not only entertained but also inspired audiences worldwide, particularly within the African-American community, where his influence and role have been nothing short of powerful. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1969, Tyler Perry’s journey to stardom was a path riddled with adversity. Raised in a turbulent household, he found refuge in writing, using it as a therapeutic outlet. This period of introspection gave rise to one of his most iconic creations, Madea, a vivacious, no-nonsense grandmother who would later become a beloved figure in Perry’s works, offering a unique blend of humor and profound life lessons. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection and financial struggles, Perry’s determination and unwavering belief in his abilities propelled him forward. In 1992, he staged his first play, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which, although met with limited success, was a pivotal moment in his career. Unfazed by initial setbacks, Perry continued to hone his craft, and by 1998, he had successfully produced a string of stage plays that showcased his storytelling prowess.
