LCC Students to Present Oral History of La Colonia

La Colonia Schoolhouse


(Lamar, Colorado; July 27, 2017) As the summer semester winds down at Lamar Community College, students in the History of Mexico and Conversational Spanish classes prepare to showcase what they’ve learned.  Specifically, these students will showcase their research on Lamar’s La Colonia neighborhood.

The classes have scheduled two presentations which are open to the public:

  • Wednesday, August 2, from 6:00-7:00pm in the Large Lecture Hall, located in the Bowman Building on the Lamar Community College campus
  • Friday, August 4, from 10:00 to 11:00am in the Cultural Events Center at the Lamar Public Library.

Each presentation will include an introduction from Luis Comez, the students’ instructor and a guiding force for the project, followed by a screening of the students’ documentary which chronicles their work over the summer semester.  The presentations will each wrap with a question and answer session.

Refreshments will be served at each presentation.

This project has been a unique opportunity for LCC students to explore and preserve the rich history of Lamar through the stories of its citizens, which began as a collaboration between the Lamar Historic Preservation Advisory Board, the Lamar Public Library, and Lamar Community College.

For any questions or for additional information, contact Dr. Annessa Stagner, Dean of Academic Services at LCC, by calling 719-336-1519.
