A Look Back at 90 Years

For 90 years, TJC has embodied the true sense of the term “community college,” as reflected in its foundational promises to provide students with a quality education, a vibrant student life and opportunities for service to the community.

All Apaches, Men and Maidens

Greetings and Salutations Fellow Apache Alumni,

Over the past nine decades, Tyler Junior College has stood the test of time.  With expansion and incorporation of new and innovative programs, TJC has continued to make our institution the “The College of East Texas”.

As one milestone is accomplished, we continue to recognize the next one approaching.  This year celebrates 70 years of entertainment provided by the Apache Band and Apache Belles.  Without a doubt, we look forward to many more entertaining performances in the years to come by both organizations.

As an active member of the Alumni Association, you may attend on-campus concerts, sporting events free of charge.  By joining as a lifetime member, these benefits are yours for life with no worry about renewal each year.  In addition, take comfort in knowing that your membership is paying it forward to current and future TJC students by funding scholarship opportunities on campus.

Being a member of the Alumni Association allows me to give back to a wonderful institution that has given so much to so many.  As we move forward, I know the years to come will be just as fulfilling as the last 90 years have been.

Feathers up!
