BEWARE OF SCAMS IN THE AREA

Below are two instances that have recently been reported by Brazoria County as scams. Similar to remaining alert for cybersecurity, we also need to be cautious when people are approaching our homes during the county’s stay at home order.

  1. A group of people impersonating Brazoria County Road & Bridge personnel are trying to charge to pave personal driveways. These individuals are not County personnel. County employees have ID's, uniforms with a County Seal and will be driving County vehicles.
  2. There are reports of individuals trying to gain access into resident's homes by saying they are with the city to test people's water for COVID-19. This is a scam. These individuals are also asking the resident to fill out a form that asks for personal information, such as social security numbers. Do not allow them in your home or provide any information.

The county is encouraging all residents to report suspicious activity immediately to your local police department.

COVID-19 IMPACT SURVEY FOR NON-DUAL CREDIT STUDENTS

Brazosport College is working with the Texas Association of Community Colleges, state policymakers, and many others to relieve the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our students.

If you are NOT currently a high school student, please complete this survey to identify your challenges and what you need to keep progressing towards your educational goals. It takes ten minutes, and the data will be used to support funding decisions to help all college students. All of your answers are completely anonymous and confidential, and the survey will not be used to contact you. You will also receive this notification in your BC email, but you only need to take the survey once.

As always, if you need support for basic needs, the Student Life team at Brazosport College is eager to serve you. Please contact Lisa Unger at lisa.unger@brazosport.edu, Kelli Forde Spiers at kelli.fordespiers@brazosport.edu, or basicneeds@brazopsort.edu with your questions and comments.
