Lone Star College

The Lone Star College System is a two-year community college network in metropolitan Houston that’s publicly funded and is the largest institution of higher education in the area. In addition to this distinction, the Lone Star College System is also the fastest-growing community college network in the state of Texas, and a member of the Service Members Opportunity Colleges Consortium.

Created in 1972 and opened in 1973 by voters in the Aldine, Spring and Humble school districts and dubbed North Harris County College, the 1991 expansion allowing coverage of nearby Montgomery County led to the adoption of the new name North Harris Montgomery Community College District. With a subsequent expansion taking the system’s coverage area outside of northern Harris and Montgomery Counties, the Board of Trustees came to the decision that the current name no longer defined the service area accurately, was too long and difficult to remember. As a result, the name change process began during the first  to semester of the 2007 to 2008 school year, instituting an online voting system. The Lone Star College System name was chosen by the voters, with an official approval from the Board of Trustees effectively renaming the district in November of 2007. A 2009 purchase of the Hewlett Packard North campus created an additional 1,200,000 square feet of space, which was intended to serve as a satellite campus, a Corporate College conference and training facility and a systems administration and support space in eight primary buildings, along with various parking garages and support infrastructure.

School Colors

Due to the lack of a dedicated sports team for all of the seven campuses and university centers, the Lone Star College System does not have a set of team colors, as such. However, the blue and white “Star of Tomorrow” logo does serve as a visual representation of the system.

Theme Song

The collection of campuses and university centers that make up the Lone Star College System do not have a dedicated Alma Mater, and have no need for a fight song due to a lack of major athletic teams that compete on a national collegiate level.


 While the Lone Star College System has no consolidated sports team that would require a mascot for athletic events, heavy planning went into the redesigning of the system’s logo, which they’ve dubbed “The Star of Tomorrow.” According to the Lone Star College System’s Branding and Style Guide, “The Star of Tomorrow symbolizes the many facets that make Lone Star Colleges truly unique sources of opportunity for our community.

The star, rather than being one solid stroke, is a collection of incomplete lines. Its structure echoes our forming students who are, themselves, works in progress. The open design of the star also represents our welcoming spirit to all seeking to improve their lives, while hinting at Lone Star College System’s potential to grow with the community.

The arc dramatically bisecting the star illustrates our dynamic role in connecting students to the future by bridging the gap between education and employment as well as our ability to link students to our colleges through distance learning.

We feel the Star of Tomorrow reflects who we are, what we will become and our commitment to helping each student achieve a brighter tomorrow.”

Nanny Recruiting

Because the Lone Star College System’s childhood development and family studies department is consolidated to one building in a campus network that sprawls across the greater Houston area, we’re able to effectively recruit interested and qualified students to work as private childcare providers. By comparing the scheduling availability, disciplinary philosophies and parenting styles of applicants to the traits and qualifications that you specify, we’re also able to match you with the best possible childcare provider to suit your family’s needs.

Nanny Screening

We understand that trusting your family, home and personal belongings with a relative stranger is a bit scary, which is why we thoroughly screen all of our applicants to verify their employment history, check for criminal records, moving violations and driving offenses as well as checking them against the National Sex Offender Registry well before their first placement in order to ensure security. We also offer these comprehensive screening services for families that have chosen a potential childcare provider through other avenues, rather than our own placement services.
