Texas Wesleyan University was selected from among five other community organizations, groups and institutions to receive the Tarrant County College South Campus Outstanding Community Partner Award for 2016.
The award is presented to partner organizations that have demonstrated extraordinary support for TCC South Campus, and have collaborated with faculty and staff to further the TCC mission and vision.
“The students are the real winners of our outstanding partnership with TCC,” Texas Wesleyan President Frederick G. Slabach, said. “We work together to make the transition from TCC to Texas Wesleyan seamless, while continuing to look for innovative ways to grow our partnership.”
One example of innovation to benefit students is Texas Wesleyan’s Smaller. Smarter. Promise. Scholarship. The scholarship, launched in Fall 2015, awards free tuition to qualifying community college transfer students.
“Texas Wesleyan is a dedicated, selfless and inspiring partner with TCC,” Peter Grant Jordan, Ed.D., president, TCC South Campus, said. “We appreciate Texas Wesleyan’s support as we strive daily to deliver on TCC values of excellence, diversity, innovation, lifelong learning, affordability and accessibility to education for residents of Tarrant County.”
President Slabach, Allen Henderson, provost and senior vice president and Pati Alexander, vice president for enrollment and student services, accepted the award at TCC’s Celebration of Excellence Award Ceremony on April 19 at the TCC South Campus Student Center.
