President's Circle

Tyler Junior College is the community’s College. Funds from the President’s Circle help to supplement the resources available to the institution so that we may respond to student and community needs and recruit the brightest and most deserving students. Often a small amount of support will make all the difference in whether a worthy student can stay and graduate.

Dr. Mike Metke
TJC President

The President's Circle of Tyler Junior College is comprised of individuals and organizations who generously support the College's mission with a leadership gift of $1,000 annually. Members of this society serve as goodwill ambassadors for the College, encouraging and inspiring alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends to join them in providing exceptional educational opportunities for our students. Members of the President's Circle set the pace for all the gifts to the College. They connect our College family in supporting the mission of Tyler Junior College.

Our President's Circle members annually ensure that our current and future students receive the required resources to continue their education. Your gift will help TJC's President provide the necessary financial support for various initiatives including scholarships, program support and academic enrichment.
