“Students will be making a true difference to our community through educating and informing our voters about local government elections and their importance to all of us,” said Elizabeth McLane, ACC Government chair.

The course also will cover material on the Texas Legislature, which will convene in January. Students will learn about the legislative process and how state laws impact local communities.

Students who complete the course will also be able to use it toward as credit toward a Bachelor’s Degree at another four-year institution.

Christmas Play













It's Christmas Eve, 1943, and the Feddington Players are now broadcasting from a hole-in-the-wall studio in Newark, NJ, and set to present their contemporary "take" on Dickens's A Christmas Carol. Whether it's the noisy plumbing, missed cues, electrical blackouts, or the over-the-top theatrics of veteran actor, but radio novice, William St. Claire, begins to connect his own life with that of the classic Dickens tale. Will it be possible to "save the show," by improvising an ending to Charles Dickens' classic as a film noir mystery, featuring a hardboiled detective, a femme fatale? Will music save the night? Come find out for yourself in this delightful holiday treat that seamlessly combines drama and comedy, heartbreak and hope.

 Purchase tickets for the play online.
