To ensure the health and safety of staff, faculty, first responders, and sponsors due to the increasing in the number of COVID cases in our area, Lamar Institute of Technology (LIT) regrettably has canceled the 20th Annual LIT A Salute to the Real American Heroes in person event which was scheduled for Thursday, September 9, 2021.
 
In lieu of the cancellation of the in person event, we would still like to honor our first responders as well as the medical community who have played a vital role in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be working with the various agencies in Jefferson, Orange and Hardin counties to facilitate a way to honor our “Real American Heroes” in a special way.
 
We would like to thank you for your support of this event and our students. The LIT Foundation is grateful to our generous sponsors. The funds donated or pledged to this year’s event will still be used to honor our first responders as well benefit the LIT Foundation and provide scholarships to students in the Public Service and Safety department.
 
We understand this a trying time for everyone and we thank you again for all you do to help and support our students and community. Should you have any questions we ask that you contact us at foundation@lit.edu or 409-839-2956. We appreciate your generosity.
 
We appreciate your support of LIT students.
