TTC's 2014 Campus Campaign kicked off last week with a lunch celebrating the college’s 50th anniversary. The event, which was sponsored by Irvin-House Vineyards, kicked off the TTC Foundation’s month-long internal giving campaign — a time when full-time faculty and staff have the opportunity to make an annual contribution to support foundation programs like scholarships, minigrants, student emergency fund and employee tuition assistance.
The theme of this year’s campus campaign is “Your Story is Our Story” in celebration of TTC’s last 50 years. Many of the more than 200 employees who attended the luncheon shared their stories about the impact the college has had on them, including campaign co-chairs Itaski Jenkins and Bill Landry. Several attendees also highlighted the impact of TTC Foundation programs, sharing that without the foundation they would not have been able to continue their education and/or obtain valuable equipment for the classroom.
