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.”
