On February 18 at 9:30 a.m., TCC Trinity River will host “Played Out: The Man in 21st Century,” featuring Brandon Manning, author and TCU professor.

Themed “The Power of the Pivot: Thriving in the Midst of Uncertainty,” this year’s event will feature keynote speaker Leah King, president and CEO of United Way Tarrant County.  King will discuss civic engagement and how students can continue to serve the community.
