Luna Community College
Luna Community College’s Future Leaders Summer Program had a 100 percent retention rate. The program allowed qualifying high school students and 2011 graduating seniors to earn college credit in science, math, engineering and technology, while instilling leadership and college success skills.
All the students costs were defrayed by the program.
The program was under the Science, Math Engineering and Technology Department, where Andrew Feldman serves as department director. The success of the program is due to the dedication of the administration, faculty and staff of LCC. The students thank LCC for their summer experience and the college credit earned.
Future Leaders Coordinator was LouElla Marr-Montoya. The program participants included students from Las Vegas Robertson, West Las Vegas, Mora, Santa Rosa, Springer, Wagon Mound, Pecos and New Mexico Military Institute.
