TREC Shines at Grand Opening

Bright skies, lively music and smiling faces were the order of the day Saturday, Oct. 1, when hundreds of visitors got a firsthand look at our award-winning Trinity River East Campus in downtown Fort Worth.

The artistic structure filled with state-of-the art equipment houses TCC’s Center for Health Care Professions that is helping to meet the rising demands of one of the area’s fastest growing industries.

Chancellor Erma Johnson Hadley introduced Toro, TCC’s trailblazing mascot, who added to the day’s festivities. TCC Board of Trustee President Bill Greenhill and Trustee Kristin Vandergriff also took part in the grand opening.

Special thanks to hundreds of volunteers who helped make the day possible by providing tours, serving food and drinks, and helping visitors find their way. The event’s success was also possible because of the support of local businesses including Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Educational Catering, Inc., Follett Higher Education Group and Struhs Companies.
