Collin College’s chapter of the League for United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) made it a clean sweep.
For the second time in five years, the Collin College chapter took home the Council, Man, Woman and Advisor of the Year awards at the district, state and national levels.
The latest round of awards came at the LULAC National Convention June 27-July 2 in Cincinnati. Cristina Garcia was named Young Woman of the Year, Francisco Luevano was named Young Adult Man of the Year and Lupita Tinnen was named Advisor of the Year. All three won the same awards at the district and state level earlier in the year.
Garcia also was recognized at the Young Adults Roundtable as the Texas State Deputy Director for Young Adults. She graduated from Collin College in May and will be attending The University of Texas at Dallas in the fall and has been elected to treasurer of the UT-Dallas LULAC Council.
In 2006, the Collin College LULAC swept the district, state and national awards taking home the Man, Woman, Advisor and Council of the Year honors in all three competitions.
On the national level, Collin College LULAC has won the Man and Woman of the Year three times each, the Council of the Year three times and the Advisor of the Year six times.
