BIG SPRING - Howard College is celebrating record enrollment at its Big Spring and San Angelo campuses.

Spring enrollment was 3,831 students. That is an 11.3% increase over Spring of 2008.

"We are excited about our enrollment and contact hour numbers and it is clear that the number of people seeking out higher education is growing," said Dr. Cheryl T. Sparks, President of Howard College.

"Howard College has continued to move in a positive direction and bring more learners one step closer to their educational goals and we are proud of that."

The Big Spring campus had an additional 237 students over the previous Spring. The San Angelo campus also scaled up some numbers as the enrollment on that campus went up by 156 students or 8%.

The Lamesa campus wasn't quite as fortunate as their sibling campuses with 19 less students representing a 13% decrease in enrollment.
