I came to Texarkana College after leaving a traditional 4-year university. I enrolled in a journalism class as an elective, and it changed my life. As part of the TC News staff, I learned the fundamentals of journalism from Jean Cotten, a legend in collegiate education. I also learned the essentials of teamwork and the importance of details. As an editor of the paper I was able to experience the joy of seeing the results of our collective labor. I use the lessons I learned at Texarkana College every day in my job at Liberty-Eylau. Teamwork, storytelling, self-evaluation and pursuing a collective vision are essential for schools. I learned all of these things at Texarkana College and am grateful for that every day.
