Gearing up for school

Gearing up for schoolMembers of TCC’s College Access and Community Outreach team helped youngsters obtain free school supplies and information about attending college at the Tarrant County Back to School Roundup on August 10.  The event was held at the Will Rogers Memorial Center’s Amon G. Carter Jr. Exhibits Hall.  A partnership among the county, local school districts, state agencies, nonprofits and corporate sponsors, the event provided services and back-to-school supplies to an estimated 10,000 young people from low income families.  Shown at the TCC booth are, left to right, Melody McGowan, Jayme Wakefield and Bethany Obert.
