3,700 Tri-C students have graduated from this past spring and it’s no wonder. Over 52,000 students recognize what professional and educational doors can be opened from obtaining a post-secondary education.
And on January 15, 2015 a national awards gala sponsored by The American Association of Colleges has recognized it as well.
The AACC is a national educational organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., that works closely with directors of state offices up to federal departments and agencies including (U.S. departments of Labor, Education, Energy, Homeland Security, and Commerce, and the National Science Foundation).
The AACC will sponsor the 2nd annual Awards of Excellence gala in San Antonio, Texas on April 20. With over 1,200 community colleges in the country, Tri-C is one of only 25 other schools to be named finalists for the Awards of Excellence, and one of only two colleges to be in the running for multiple awards.
One of the categories Tri-C is nominated in is, in the “student success” category as well as “safety planning and leadership.”
“We’ve made tremendous strides in reorganizing and revitalizing student success in the institution,” says Tri-C President Alex Johnson.
Finalists were named during the week of January 15 and category winners will be announced on April 20th during the AACC convention in San Antonio, Texas.
