FORT WORTH, Texas (April 9, 2015) –
The Texas Association of Fire Educators has honored Tarrant County College’s Dennis Floyd as 2015 Instructor of the Year.
 
Floyd brings more than three decades of firefighting experience, including 26 years with the Fort Worth Fire Department and 15 years with TCC, to his current post as an adjunct instructor for the TCC Fire Service Training Center. Floyd trains recruits for live fire scenarios and physical ability requirements; he also provides continuing education to professional and volunteer firefighters throughout the region.
 
“Dennis is a proven leader who is committed to the safety of students, firefighters and the community,” says Steve Keller, director of the TCC Fire Service Training Center. “He is an incredible asset to TCC and our students, and we are proud that the Texas Association of Fire Educators recognizes his impact on the next generation of first responders.”
