College to celebrate milestones

September 29, 2011

Consider it two celebrations in one.

Howard College will celebrate two important milestones Friday — the 65th anniversary of the first day of classes at the institution and the official completion of a multi-year, $23 million campus renovation.

Building dedications, tours and an address from a former HC student who went on to become one of the top educators in Texas will highlight the Friday observance.
