Lamar University’s Texas Academy of Leadership in the Humanities (TALH), the university’s early entrance college residential honors program, will host an open house in Price Auditorium, the Iles Building and the Gray Center on Oct. 8.
“The Open House is a fantastic opportunity for parents and
interested students to learn more about our program and hear firsthand from
students the benefits of an early college education,” TALH Director Ted Stuberfield
said. “We are extremely delighted to provide a venue in which gifted students
can explore the possibilities of their educational careers and plan for future
collegiate, career and human development.”
The suggested attendees for the TALH Open House are ninth- and 10th-graders, along with their parents. Once there, the students will see
presentations on academic and social life at the academy, living and security
in residence halls, financial aid and the benefits of receiving an education
from the TALH.
The TALH was established to give high school junior and
seniors the opportunity to receive at least 60 college credits before graduation.
“The academy is one of two such programs created by the
Texas State Legislature,” TALH Assistant Director Scott Stevenson said.
