Lamar Institute of Technology - Dr. Lonnie Howard, President

"Lamar Institute of Technology (LIT) is dedicated to serving students with affordable and high quality career and technical education. With the implementation of LIT's Shared Vision of growth and excellence, the college is embarking on a goal of having an annual enrollment of 10,000 students within the next 10 years. Increasing student access is only one part the THECB 60x30 Plan and TSUS 2020 Targets. LIT also remains focused on student success, meeting workforce demands, driving economic development, and providing a pathway to the American Dream."


Lamar State College Orange- Dr. Gwen Whitehead, VP for Academic Affairs

When the torrential rains of Tropical Storm Harvey began falling in Southeast Texas on August 30, 2017, no one knew what to expect, in spite of what we had seen happen in Houston just days earlier. When daylight finally came on August 31, the sights of flooded neighborhoods and cities shocked even those who had been through previous tropical storms and floods in the area. While the Lamar State College - Orange campus came through Tropical Storm Harvey with only one building compromised, the same could not be said of its students, faculty, and staff. Homes and apartments were flooded, vehicles were inundated, and many businesses were closed pending repair. One-third of our faculty and staff were directly impacted by the rising water. Despite these challenges, the LSC-O campus made emergency repairs, revised the course schedule, and re-opened its doors on September 18. Most students set aside their personal problems and returned to the classroom. Lamar State College - Orange salutes the resiliency and determination of its campus community.

Lamar State College Port Arthur - Dr. Betty Reynard, President

The well-being of students is the first priority of Lamar State College Port Arthur. In the face of Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath, the support of our students, faculty and staff became critical. Community initiatives and grants in excess of $250,000 were donated to assist students in achieving their educational goals. Likewise, faculty and staff worked diligently to help the college realize a 12% increase in enrollment in spite of the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey on the community. Donations also streamed in to help the college continue its physical growth with a $500,000 donation from a retired Texaco refinery worker to support office management programs and other programs on campus.
