Message From The President

Dr. Jerry King
It is a privilege to serve as president of Trinity Valley Community College (TVCC) and to see the impact our college is having on the lives of so many people. TVCC provides high quality and affordable educational programs to meet the needs of our students with campuses in Athens, Kaufman, Palestine and Terrell.

TVCC has a rich history of academic excellence and a strong reputation of student learning and student success as the top priority.  Faculty and staff at TVCC are truly committed to provide a collaborative and supportive environment to best serve the needs of students, whether their goal is to enter the work force, transfer to a university to complete a bachelor's degree or to gain skills that can help them in the competitive workplace.
We truly care about the success of our students and providing opportunities to change lives and fulfill dreams. TVCC faculty and students consistently excel in their respective fields, and this history of excellence has focused national recognition on the college and has earned the respect of its peers. The Aspen Institute College Excellence Program named TVCC for the fourth consecutive time as one of the nation’s top 150 community colleges–from over 1,108 community colleges nationwide—honoring institutions that achieve exceptional levels of success for all students.

I welcome you to contact me personally at 903-675-6211 or by email at if you have any questions about TVCC. I sincerely hope that you will entrust us with helping to make your educational goals and dreams come true!

On behalf of our dedicated faculty and staff, we look forward to serving you. Thank you.
