Rob Springer recently joined Tyler Junior College as director of annual giving.
Springer oversees the TJC President’s Circle, the TJC Foundation golf tournament, the college’s employee campaign, annual scholarships and various other giving initiatives, all of which raise awareness and funds for TJC scholarships and programs.
Springer and his family moved back to Texas from Indiana, where he worked as the redevelopment commission executive director for the city of Shelbyville, Indiana, and the executive director for the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Central Indiana.
He comes to TJC with more than 21 years of experience in operations, sales, project management and marketing, with the last seven focusing on relationship building, strategic planning, grant writing, community/business development, property management and fundraising.
He is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, having served in Operation Desert Storm. He earned his undergraduate degree in business and marketing from Baylor University and later completed his master’s degree work in theology at Regent University.
Springer said he is passionate about building community and helping others achieve a high quality of life.
“People are our most valuable assets, relationships are our greatest tools, and collaboration is our greatest resource,” he said. “TJC has a long, storied history of making a difference in the lives of its students and in the community, and I am excited to be a part this important work.”
Springer and his wife, Mary, have four sons: Noah, 15, a freshman at Robert E. Lee; Samuel, 14, attending Hubbard Middle School; Elijah, 10, and Levi, 7, both attending Rice Elementary School.
