Woodlandsonline.com: MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas -- More than 35 high school teachers and technical/career counselors from across Texas played the role of student this week during a three-day High School Educators Retreat, hosted by Lone Star College-Montgomery’s land surveying and mapping technology program and the Texas Society of Professional Surveyors. The retreat, which took place June 16-18 at the LSC-Montgomery campus, gave participants an opportunity to learn more about the land surveying and mapping industry and the college’s workforce program.

Land surveying professionals from throughout the state volunteered their time to share experiences and provide participants with hands-on demonstrations of the state-of-the-art equipment used in the profession. Educators were also provided ideas as to how to incorporate the information they’ve learned into programs that will better prepare their students for entering college-level surveying and mapping technology programs, such as the program at LSC-Montgomery.
