Las Mascaras Speech & Drama Club is the oldest active social organization on campus. Born on the founding day of Tyler Junior College, "Las Mas" was created to support the dramatic activities on campus. Named by former Vice President Edwin Potter, who was a charter member, Las Mascaras translates into "the Maskers."
