The Laredo Community College board of trustees called a special meeting to discuss a ban on smoking at their campuses. Laredo Morning Times had this to report:
Smoking might soon become a thing of the past at Laredo Community College.
In a special-called meeting Thursday, LCC’s board of trustees directed administration to research banning smoking at the college with all but one board member vocalizing their support for a smoke-free campus.
The item was approved with seven votes. Allen Tijerina opposed, as he favored an option for designated smoking areas.
“I don’t have any problem with people smoking as long as (you’re) … not exposing other people to it,” trustee Carlos Carranco said. “And I think we stand here at the precipice of a wonderful opportunity.”
In the meantime, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools website shows that LCC continues on probation.
