During a regular meeting of the Howard College Board of Trustees Cindy Smith, District Director of Information and Marketing for Howard College, reported to the Board that the District’s Hurricane Harvey [Relief] Effort had managed to raise over $3,700 to send to the colleges that the college had adopted during the Adopt-a-College program, Alvin Community College and College of the Mainland. They had also managed to previously send 7 laptops to help students be able to continue their education and 2 and half boxes filled with food and personal hygiene supplies that had been collected.
Fabian Serrano, Director of Correctional Studies / Workforce and Community Development Officer, also addressed the Board to advise that Howard College had been working with the North Side Movement to offer Adult Education Literacy evening classes on Mondays and Tuesdays from 5:30 – 8:30 PM at Ryan Hall, located at 605 N. Main, and there will also be English Second Language classes that will be available on demand. Morning classes will also be available at the Salvation Army, located at 811 W. 5th St., on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8-12 PM.
It should be noted that these are the same classes that are available at Howard College but beginning in January they will be offered at other accessible areas in the community. Those who do complete their High School Equivalency Test will be afforded the opportunity to be a part of the Howard College Graduation Ceremony beginning in May of 2018.
To sign up for the classes you can contact the Adult Education Literacy Coordinator for Howard College, Tammy Alexander at email@example.com or call (432) 264-5069.
