Texarkana College Students Lead the State Through Involvement with Faculty Sponsored Campus Organizations

The Texarkana College Board of Trustees met on Monday, March 27, 2023, for their regular monthly meeting. Action items included discussion and approval of the 2023-2024 faculty contract recommendations for both 9- and 12-month assignments and rank advancements for eligible faculty. Dr. Donna McDaniel, Vice President of Instruction, said TC faculty members go above and beyond their classroom duties to ensure students are successful and engaged on campus.

“When we ask students about their experience at TC, without fail they say they feel like family here,” said Dr. McDaniel. “TC faculty members have years of experience and a great depth of knowledge in their fields of study, and they take great pride in sharing their love for their subjects with their students. It makes a huge difference in college students’ experiences when professors and faculty members are easily accessible and passionate about their students’ success and completion. We have some of the very best instructors in all of higher education right here at TC and our rankings as one of the top five community colleges in the state of Texas for student completion rates prove that students flourish here.”

Dr. McDaniel said participation with campus organizations and clubs help enrich students’ lives.

“Two of TC’s most active campus organizations include Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) International Honor Society and Student Government Association (SGA), said Dr. McDaniel. “These organizations are led by outstanding faculty advisors and provide students with leadership training, networking with community and state leaders, and projects that expand students’ awareness of civic opportunities and responsibilities. Both PTK and SGA have had recent success at the state level and have provided travel opportunities for students.”
