The Tomball Regional Health Foundation awarded more than $300,000 to Lone Star College-Tomball's lifePATH and nursing programs, according to a Nov. 26 news release.

“We are so honored by the support shown to Lone Star College-Tomball by Tomball Regional Health Foundation,” LSC-Tomball President Lee Ann Nutt said in the release. “This gift will pay dividends to our community for years to come.”

The lifePATH program—a four-year comprehensive model of post-secondary educational opportunities for students with executive-functioning disabilities—received $211,775 from the foundation, the release said. This includes a $100,000 scholarship endowment, funding for student assessment testing, a wraparound support coach and a processing disorder tutor.

“[The foundation] is honored to provide funding for the Lone Star College lifePATH program,” said Lynn LeBouef, LSC Foundation board treasurer and TRHF CEO, in the release. “This program will give young adults in our community a unique opportunity to learn the social and skill expectations needed in business, academics and personal relationships that after graduation will allow them to have a brighter future in the workforce.”

An additional $100,000 was awarded to a nursing endowment at LSC Foundation, which assists LSC-Tomball nursing students with scholarships, according to the release.


“Thanks to funding from Tomball Regional Health Foundation, Lone Star College-Tomball students have fewer financial barriers and more community support,” LSC Foundation Executive Director Nicole Robinson Gauthier said in the release. “This truly is a great partnership.”
