We were delighted that last year's virtual 2021 Reach Higher Week raised a record amount for the TCC Foundation in support of our students. Yet we continue to make our top priority the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community. We have made the decision to again transform the Reach Higher luncheon to a virtual, week-long event for 2022.
This year you'll see the inspirational stories of TCC President Dr. Ivan Harrell, members of the TCC basketball teams, and members of TCC student government.Reach Higher Week's mission is to invest in the success of TCC students, especially during these challenging times. You will have the opportunity to support:
- Scholarships for TCC students to help them achieve their educational goals
- The Max and Margi Harned Titan Food Pantry on the TCC campus
- The Emergency Student Fund which helps TCC students pay unexpected expenses
- Student housing insecurity, which is an even greater challenge right now
You will receive more information about Reach Higher Week over the coming weeks. Until then, thank you for your continued support of TCC students and the TCC Foundation.
