For College of the Mainland’s continued volunteer efforts and work to provide an affordable education to residents in Galveston County, the North Galveston County Chamber of Commerce has selected COM as the business of the month.
“Our Chamber Ambassadors [committee] discusses businesses who have volunteered or made a difference in the community,” said North Galveston County Chamber of Commerce President Alicen Newman. “They unanimously approved COM as an organization that enriches the lives of the community and business community as well.”
COM currently serves more than 4,000 students in its degree and certificate programs.
“We strive to serve our community and are very grateful for this recognition,” said COM Acting President Dr. Amy Locklear. “Just this month, we are happy to have raised $500 for Toys for Tots and collected 105 pounds of food in our annual holiday food drive. We enjoy participating in activities that aid and support community development.”
College of the Mainland offers a variety of nationally accredited programs that prepare students for success in transferring to a university or entering the workforce, including programs in process technology, business and health care. An Achieving the Dream Leader College, COM has an excellent professor-to-student ratio that allows instructors to connect with each class. We’re the launching pad for success stories throughout the Mainland.
