COM highlights high school programs at Community Advisory Council meeting
COLLEGE OF THE MAINLAND was able to highlight their collegiate high school and dual credits
programs during Thursday’s Texas City-La Marque Community Advisory Council meeting held at
the Captain’s Room at Nessler Center.
Both Sandra Belcher, COM’s Director of Collegiate High School and Director of Dual Credit
Theresa Jones were able to inform the attendees about the progress of their respective
departments.
“Our collegiate high school is the best kept secret in Galveston County,” said Belcher, who has
overseen a department that has gone from 65 students in 2010 to 250 for the 2018-19 school
year. The students hail from the Clear Creek, Dickinson, Friendswood, Galveston, Hitchcock and
Texas City school districts.
The school has also seen a drastic increase in the number of students in its dual credit courses.
In 2010, COM had 647 students participating in the system but now has 1,333 students who will
eventually earn an associates’ degree along with their high school diploma.
COM President Dr. Warren Nichols also announced the school will have a grand opening of its
Student Center on April 29 at 3:30pm. The first floor of the Student Center will be named the
Bennie Matthews Commons.
The CAC announced that its next meeting will be held on Thursday, May 16, when TCISD
Executive Director of Security and School Safety Mike Matranga will serve as the guest speaker.
