HOUSTON — Today, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush visited Lone Star College-Kingwood where he toured the school along with many of the latest state-of-the-art equipment and programs offered to students enrolled at the Process Technology Center.

With everchanging technology, it is important that the hands-on training that students receive keeps up with the latest technology. During both the visit and tour, Commissioner Bush visited with students learning new skills in process technology operations. Process technology operations' primary goal is to maintain specialized equipment to ensure the process is running efficiently and safely.

“With technology continuously advancing, it is more important now than ever before for students of today to be ready for the workplace of tomorrow,” saidCommissioner Bush. “A process technician plays a significant role in the creation of many things we come into contact with every day-whether we know it or not. Lone Star College-Kingwood is working to ensure our students are receiving the foremost training in technology to equip them for their future careers. It is inspiring to see many of the men and women who admirably served our nation in the military transitioning into educational programs where their valued skills can be put straight to work."

The process center tour included:


Earlier this year, Commissioner Bush dedicated 2019 to having a “conversation with the future,” engaging with schools and teachers across the state. As a former public-school teacher, Commissioner Bush understands first-hand the impact education has on our students. Experiencing an up close and personal look at what Lone Star College offers, testifies to their sincere efforts of making education more accessible and beneficial to the workforce today. Our students today are our leaders of tomorrow. There is never a better time to engage in the educational efforts extended to our future Texan leaders.
