Officer William Jason Sprague Memorial Scholarship reaches endowed status

Sprague2Due to the outpouring of support from the entire community, the scholarship fund established in memory of fallen Texarkana, Texas police officer William Jason Sprague has reached endowed status. The memorial scholarship fund now stands at $27,350.

“The community came together to support not only our family, but also the field of law enforcement,” said Stephanie Sprague, the fallen officer’s widow.  “This scholarship, established in memory of Jason and his sacrifice, will help students enter the field of criminal justice and earn higher education credentials to advance in their careers. We are overwhelmed and grateful for the contributions made toward the advancement of this scholarship fund.”

The Texarkana College Foundation will manage the funds and award scholarships from the interest earned on the endowment.

“By reaching endowed status, this scholarship will be a permanent source of funding for students interested in pursuing a degree in criminal justice at Texarkana College,” said Katie Andrus, Texarkana College Foundation Director. “This is one of TC’s most popular programs of study, and this investment in the future of our students will go a long way to help those in need of financial support.  We could not be more grateful to the Sprague family and the community for establishing the memorial fund at Texarkana College.”

Sprague also noted that September 20, 2014, will be National Thank a Police Officer Day.  She hopes that the community will rally in support of all police officers who sacrifice their safety every day to ensure a more secure community for us all.

Board recognizes Excellence Award recipients

Ronda Dozier

Dr. Phyllis Gardner

Texarkana, Texas, July 22, 2014- At its regular meeting on July 22, the Texarkana College Board of Trustees recognized Dr. Phyllis Gardner, professor, and Ronda Dozier, Dean of Workforce & Continuing Education, for receiving the annual National Institute of Staff and Organizational Development Excellence Awards.

NISOD’s Excellence Awards recognize men and women each year who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment and contribution to their students and colleagues.  Each year, participating colleges select two recipients who contribute to student success and their colleges’ missions.

“Dr. Phyllis Gardner and Ronda Dozier were easy choices for the NISOD Excellence Award because they represent excellence in everything they do,” said President James Henry Russell. “This award is meant for two leaders at your institution who easily adapt to change, engage with your student body, and exemplify a ‘failure is not an option’ spirit. We are fortunate to have educational leaders like Dr. Gardner and Mrs. Dozier to represent Texarkana College and our world-class faculty and administration this year.”

Gardner and Dozier were formally recognized for their achievements at NISOD’s annual International Conference on Teaching and Leadership Excellence, held May 25-28 in Austin, Texas. Created in 1978, NISOD is a consortium of community and technical colleges that offers its members professional development resources, special publications, webinars, an annual conference, awards and more.

Gardner, a professor of sociology, psychology and addiction studies, has worked for Texarkana College since 1997, and she currently serves as president of the IC&RC, an international organization that sets credentialing standards for prevention, substance use treatment, and recovery professionals. Gardner also sponsors TC’s Road Scholars study abroad program.

Dozier has worked for Texarkana College since 2008. In January 2013, she was the first woman to be appointed Dean of Workforce and Continuing Education. She represents education on the Northeast Texas Workforce Solutions board and serves on the Texarkana Chamber of Commerce Community and Military Affairs Committee.

In other business, the board approved a recommendation by the administration to order the November Board of Trustees election to be held Nov. 4, 2014.  Due to a joint election agreement with Bowie County, the election will take place in correspondence with the county’s polling locations.

TC Foundation receives $10,000 to revitalize tennis courts

foundationcheckJuly 7, 2014, Texarkana, TX- The Red River Tennis Association (RRTA) presented a $10,000 donation today to the Texarkana College Foundation to revitalize the tennis courts located at the college’s Pinkerton Recreation Center.  The check presentation ceremony, held in the lobby of the Nelson Administration building, included representatives of the Red River Tennis Association who announced the newly formed collaboration to provide Texarkana College students along with members of the RRTA and the community greater access to quality tennis courts and recreational programs.

Bob Long, president of the Red River Tennis Association, said, “We are glad to support the efforts of the College to provide a quality tennis program to the community.  The courts are in great need of updating and members of our association recognize this effort as the necessary first step in making strides toward revitalizing the recreational tennis opportunities at the College.”

The RRTA will work alongside college officials to develop recreational tennis programs that will benefit the community as well as TC students.  The eight tennis courts are a part of the Texarkana College Pinkerton Recreation Center which provides students and community patrons with access to a full-service fitness and gymnasium facility that includes basketball and racquetball courts, an Olympic-size heated indoor swimming pool, a weight facility, and a fitness room.

“We are grateful to receive this generous donation to help update our tennis courts,” said Texarkana College President, James Henry Russell.  “The courts were built in 1969 and there are a lot of updates needed before they can be fully utilized again.  Throughout the years, the courts have been home to area and regional tennis tournaments and have provided an affordable and accessible facility where students and community members can practice and play. The Red River Tennis Association’s support will allow us to continue to offer this service and to develop additional recreational opportunities.”

The Red River Tennis Association currently has close to 300 members and was founded in 1998 to promote the sport of tennis in the Texarkana area.  Persons interested in learning more about the Texarkana College Pinkerton Center may contact Debby Steifer at 903-823-3413.  For additional information about the Texarkana College Foundation or to make a donation, please contact Katie Andrus by calling (903) 823-3125 or by email at katie.andrus@texarkanacollege.edu.

Student Government Association earns state honors

2014SGASTATE

At the Texas Junior College Student Government Association State Convention in Austin on April 10-14, students Kyle Elliott, Elizabeth Elliott, Jesse Darby-Tillis, Josh Goodwin, Jay Goodwin, Ashley Todd, and John Massey, along with advisor Doug Saffel, represented the TC Student Government Association, garnering multiple achievements.

  • Ashley Todd is the newly elected State Executive Board Parliamentarian for 2014-15. This is an important position that requires three executive board meetings, where the board plans everything for TJCSGA at the state level. This impacts thousands of students at 72 community colleges in Texas.
  • Delegates were instrumental in taking direct action and providing a voice for students at the state level. During a general assembly attended by 500 students and advisors, Kyle Elliott gave a speech that received a standing ovation.
  • Advisor Doug Saffel was elected Region III Advisor-Elect, meaning he will have a direct leadership role in managing the 15 colleges that make up our strong and active region. This position is a two-year term–in 2015-16, Saffel will be Region III Advisor.
  • Texarkana College has been named Host School for the 2015 Spring Region III Conference. This is a one-day conference where TC SGA will facilitate assembles, meetings, workshops, and food and entertainment for approximately 100 students from across our region.
