Beautification Award

A local organization recognized and honored the detailed beauty of the Lamar State College Orange campus.

Keep Orange County Beautiful awarded LSCO President, Dr. Thomas Johnson, with the KOCB Beautification Award for the campus.

Deborah Bednar, president of the county’s beautification organization, said she has long admired the campus landscaping.

“It’s inspiring to the community to see that the Future is Bright Orange,” Bednar said, referencing the LSCO slogan.

Dr. Johnson said he appreciates the award because of the pride our campus takes in maintaining a clean and pleasant campus environment.

“I often hear from people who are visiting our campus for the first time that they had no idea our campus was so beautiful,” he said.

Sandra Hoke, a KOCB member, commented that she hopes that others in the community will follow suit to the way Lamar State College Orange maintains the campus.

Previous Beautification Award recipients include Salvation Army, Sabine Federal Credit Union, and Industrial Thermal Services.
