July 24, 2007 Collin College's Young Adult Council of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is at it again.

The council was named the National Council of the Year at the annual national convention in Chicago in July. This is the second year in a row that the Collin College LULAC council has won this honor and the third since 2003.

Additionally, Lupita Tinnen, professor of photography, was named the LULAC Young Adult Advisor of the Year at the national competition. This is the third straight year that a Collin College LULAC advisor has won this honor and the fourth since 2003.

The Young Adult Council of the Year award is awarded to the group that was most active over the last year. In addition, the council must sponsor a youth council. Collin College's LULAC sponsors the group at Centennial High School in Frisco. The Collin College LULAC has witnessed success before sweeping the 2003 and 2006 national LULAC awards.

Both the Young Adult Council and Tinnen were given the same awards at the regional and state competitions earlier in the year.
