LAREDO, TX.- For the last ten years, the Laredo Community College South Campus has worked to meet the educational needs of south Laredo residents, and now the LCC South family would like to extend a little of that love to the community during its 10th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, April 26.
The day’s celebration kicks off at 10 a.m. with an opening ceremony led by Dr. Fred Solis, associate vice president for instruction.
The event also will feature an invocation by Sister Rosemary Welsh and Sister Maria Luisa Vera of Mercy Ministries, and the performance of the National Anthem by the new Campus Orchestra under the direction of music instructor Andrew Uhe.
LCC President Dr. Juan L. Maldonado and LCC Board of Trustees President Cynthia Mares will share some words of reflection with guests attending the formal ceremony. Congressman Henry Cuellar, a distinguished alum of LCC and long-time supporter of the college, will be the keynote speaker.
At the end of the ceremony, LCC staff and students will officially unveil a Palomino statue donated by longtime LCC supporters Steve and Linda LaMantia.
The festivities do not stop there, however. After the ceremony, students, families and the public are invited to share in an afternoon of fun, food, and games.
