Message from the 2012-13 Alumni President

Dec 14, 2012 by

I am honored and privileged to serve as the president of your Tyler Junior College Alumni Association. We have an outstanding board of directors who truly love and support Tyler Junior College.

The TJC Alumni Association’s mission is to promote our College by supporting its many programs, provide scholarships and assist in the recruitment of students.

We have so many exciting things happening in 2012-2013, especially with the 65th anniversary of our Apache Band and Belles. As a part of their celebration, we have a special membership drive for the Apache Band Gold, Apache Band Backers and Apache Belle Backers. You do not have to be a former student to support TJC through membership in the TJC Alumni Association — relatives and friends of the College are welcome to show their support by becoming an “ABC” (Alumni By Choice) member. We are also excited about our Band & Belles trip to Japan this spring when they will visit Tokyo, Tyler’s Sister City Yachiyo, and perform at military bases for our troops and their families — and alumni are invited to travel with them, too!

Since 1926, Tyler Junior College has been fulfilling three promises to its students and the Tyler area by providing a quality education, a vibrant student life and service to the community.

If you are not a member, please show your Apache Spirit by becoming a member of the TJC Alumni Association by going to or call 903-510-2371 and show you support your College—Tyler Junior College, the best junior college in the nation!

Go Apaches!
