  H.R. No. 1558
         WHEREAS, San Jacinto College has been named one of the top 10
  community colleges in the nation by the Aspen Institute for
  Community College Excellence; and
         WHEREAS, The Aspen Institute recognizes community colleges
  that have demonstrated exceptional achievement in student
  learning, certificate and degree completion, employment and
  earnings for graduates, and access and success for minority and
  low-income students; San Jacinto College has been a perennial
  honoree of the Aspen Institute, which previously presented the
  school with a 2017 Rising Star Award, placing it among the country's
  top five community colleges; and
         WHEREAS, Serving students in the greater Houston area at
  three main campuses, San Jacinto College has received praise for
  its strong workforce programs that are aligned with job
  opportunities and employer needs in the region, particularly in the
  health care, maritime, and petrochemical industries; the college
  has invested significantly in guided pathways reforms to help
  ensure that students stay on track to meeting their academic goals,
  and over the past decade, it has increased the number of
  certificates and associate degrees awarded by 169 percent; during
  the last academic year, more than 7,000 students received a
  certificate or degree from San Jacinto College, thanks in large
  part to the school's focus on supporting students from enrollment
  to graduation; and
         WHEREAS, San Jacinto College plays a vital role in the
  community by providing area Texans with the knowledge and skills
  necessary to build productive and fulfilling careers, and its
  well-deserved designation as one of the nation's premier community
  colleges is a testament to the dedication and perseverance of its
  administrators, faculty, and students; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 86th Texas
  Legislature hereby congratulate San Jacinto College on being
  selected as one of the top 10 community colleges in the country by
  the Aspen Institute and extend to all those associated with the
  college sincere best wishes for continued success; and, be it
         RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
  prepared for San Jacinto College as an expression of high regard by
  the Texas House of Representatives.
