NORTH HOUSTON – J & H Machining and Welding donated $45,000 to Lone Star College Foundation. The money will help students enrolled in the machining, robotics or automotive programs at LSC-North Harris.
“Lone Star College Foundation appreciates companies such as J&H Machining and Welding for their generous donations that help to alleviate some of the financial burdens that our students might face,” said Nicole Robinson Gauthier, CFRE, LSC Foundation Executive Director. “These funds can potentially motivate individuals to start or complete their college education.”
