CCCCD Hispanic Students Form Young Adult Council

OCTOBER 4, 2002 - Collin County Community College District's Hispanic students take the initiative to create a recognized student organization under the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). The student organization, CCCCD-LULAC Young Adult Council, will provide representation for the nine percent of our student community who are Hispanic.

"The benefit of a LULAC group is that it brings students together who share a cultural background. These students will also be able to bring attention to and support of the needs of Latin American students at CCCCD," said Lisabeth Lassiter, student organization advisor.

LULAC is a driving force behind significant advancements and improvements to the quality of life for Hispanics across the country.

CCCCD serves more than 37,000 credit and continuing education students annually and offers more than 100 degree and certificate programs in a wide range of disciplines. In addition, the CCCCD is a partner to business, government and industry, providing customized training and work force development.
