Southeast President Earns Top Arlington Honor

Judith Carrier, president of TCC’s Southeast Campus, was recognized as the 2010 Star Award recipient Thursday, Sept. 23, by the Arlington Chamber of Commerce at their Annual Dinner and Meeting.

The award is the highest recognition given by the chamber to an individual or organization. Carrier joins an elite group of recipients, including State Sen. Chris Harris in 2008 and Jerry Jordan in 2009.

Attendees at the event in support of Carrier included other TCC administrators, SE faculty, staff, and students, and Chancellor Erma Johnson Hadley. To view event photos, visit the Buzz gallery.

Carrier, president of the SE Campus since its opening in 1996, is always the first to point out the campus’ location in Arlington. She has held several community leadership roles, including serving as the first female chair of the chamber in 2005-2006. She was also a spokesperson for the Arlington Chamber’s “I Am the Chamber” campaign in 2008-2009 and has been the Chamber’s “Team Arlington” delegate to Austin and Washington D.C., for several years.

“Given the scope of your commitment to Arlington throughout the years, I am particularly pleased that we will be able to acknowledge your role in the community and the significance of your contributions,” said Chamber President and CEO Wes Jurey in a letter to Carrier.

Congratulations, Dr. Carrier and thanks for all you do!
