Message from the Board Chairman
Education is a cornerstone of any community’s economic wellbeing and quality of life! As one of the largest institutions of higher learning in Texas, touching over 100,000 students' lives each year, Tarrant County College is a vital part of our community’s ability to grow and prosper. In this era of increasing demands on public spending, Tarrant County College Foundation’s success at raising, managing and providing scholarship and program support to students who might not otherwise have the resources to pursue higher education is essential. As we help increase the earning power of individuals through education, we also raise their ability to become greater contributors to our local economy as consumers and tax payers. We believe that the educational opportunity Tarrant County College provides each student impacts the future for all of us.
--Robert ‘Bob’ Benda
