June 10, 2011 – Collin College’s chapter of the League for United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) swept the 2011 State Convention awards June 2-5.

The Collin College chapter received the Council of the Year award. In addition, Cristina Garcia was named Young Woman of the Year, Francisco Luevano was named Young Adult Man of the Year and Lupita Tinnen was named Advisor of the Year.

“Cristina is a strong leader and the young adults of Texas are lucky to have her,” Tinnen, a professor of photography, said. “Francisco was the treasurer of the Collin College council this year and will be the president next year. LULAC will be in great hands. The convention really inspired next year’s leaders.”

The chapter won the same awards at the district level earlier this year. The National Convention is June 27-July 2 in Cincinnati.

In 2006, the Collin College LULAC swept the district, state and national awards taking home the Man, Woman, Advisor and Council of the Year honors in all three competitions.

On the state level, Collin College LULAC has won the Man of the Year five times, the Woman of the Year four times, the Council of the Year four times and the Advisor of the Year seven times.
