Networking, leadership skills, and a quality education is what Raymond Craft earned at Lone Star College-Kingwood. His journey began in August 2008 and at which time he was an active Student Ambassador, a New Student Orientation Leader, and president of the African-American Student association.
“My experience at LSC-Kingwood was life changing. I developed leadership skills, networked, and prepared for the demands of a larger university,” Raymond said. “I would recommend this campus to everyone I know because here you can develop yourself, network with positive role models, and develop lifelong relationship with peers.”
Raymond graduated from LSC-Kingwood in December 2010 with an Associate of Arts degree with an emphasis in Liberal Arts. Now at the University of Houston, he continues to work full time with LSC-Kingwood students in Outreach and Recruitment, helping high school students become acclimated to college life.
“It is so rewarding to assist students in their transition and to share my success to motivate them to pursue higher education,” he said.
Raymond graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and a minor in Business Management this spring. He then plans to attend graduate school to earn a Master of Arts degree in Education Administration. His goal is to use his education and experience to help students pursue and accomplish their own educational goals.
“It is my passion to continue working in higher education as a campus dean or a director of student admissions,” he said.
