First, I want to THANK YOU for your love and support of Trinity Valley Community College. Together, we make dreams come true because of alumni, friends, and donors like you. Our shared connection to our life-changing college, along with your financial support furthers our mission of being a life-changer for so many.
The news about COVID-19 has upended life on campus. The situation and our responses are changing rapidly, sometimes by the hour. I am sure you have received many emails from companies and organizations detailing their business continuity plans so I want to assure you that we also have continuity plans to continue the critical business of teaching our students as they progress toward graduation. We are confident and well-positioned to deliver on a transformational education whether online or face-to-face. We always make decisions with the safety and health of our students, faculty, and staff in mind.
Because we want to be sensitive to the impacts of the pandemic, we will not have as many opportunities to see and talk with our alumni, friends, and donors this spring. Many of our events have been postponed or cancelled. We are currently delaying our face-to-face fundraising and as you know our Foundation golf tournament has been cancelled. However, I want you to know that we continue to press forward in our mission to be a beacon of hope for our current and future Cardinals.
Many of you have reached out concerning the impact of COVID-19 on TVCC and asked how you can help. Our greatest concern is that many of our students are going to need our support now more than ever. To support our students during this time of need, I encourage you to give to our Emergency Assistance Fund for Cardinals. EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR COUNTS! This fund provides short-term financial assistance to our students who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses due to an unexpected emergency or crisis situation. DEADLINE FOR FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIPS EXTENDED TO JUNE 15, 2020! Students Click Here for the New TVCC Foundation Scholarship Application Form
