"Have a Heart" Faculty Endowed Scholarship

Mae Rose HillMae Rose Hill
The TJC Faculty Senate began this campaign in 2012, to endow a new scholarship. In just two years, the fundraising goal was met and the first recipient of the TJC Faculty Endowed Scholarship is Mae Rose Hill! Mae Rose is a second-generation TJC student and a member of the speech and debate team. She is the granddaughter of TJC English Professor Lee Nell Hill. Mae Rose won two national championships in speech and debate last year and has already qualified in three events for nationals this year. She is also active in the theatre program; her most recent role was Calpurnia in “To Kill a Mockingbird.” She is president of Phi Rho Pi and holds a 3.86 GPA having earned 61 hours of college credit. 

Please consider making a contribution to the TJC Faculty Endowed Scholarship this February, so that more students like Mae Rose Hill can be recognized for their remarkable accomplishments and promising futures.

In support of this great initiative led by the TJC Faculty Senate, Dr. Metke is donating his children’s book, “My Story” by Foxy Metke, to the Faculty Senate. Anyone donating $28 or more will receive one of these books with a calligraphy personalization by our own Marian Jackson.
