Lawson State receives national recognition

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Lawson State Community College in Birmingham is getting some national recognition.

Washington Monthly Magazine recently ranked the school as one of the top five community colleges in the nation in 2013. The magazine applauded Lawson's first year retention rate, graduation rate, student effort and their level of academic challenge.

"What it does, it lets us know we're doing some things right, not everything, but some things right, and that's being recognized and that's a privilege and an honor," said Dr. Bruce Crawford with Lawson State.

In 2010, Lawson was ranked 39th.
