TCC Nursing Program Celebrates 50 Years of Success

Some 115 graduates of the Tarrant County College Nursing Program received their pins and other honors on May 9 during an honorary pinning ceremony held before a large crowd of family and friends at Mansfield ISD’s Center for the Performing Arts. The program featured a candle lighting ceremony that is a rite of passage in honor Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.

The TCC Nursing Program also is celebrating another milestone: 50 years of providing quality nursing education to the region. In 1967, TCC’s nursing program began with approximately 25 students on the South Campus of what was then Tarrant County Junior College. Once the Trinity River Campus East opened in 2011, trhe program relocated there.  During his opening remarks, TCC Trinity River President Sean Madison discussed plans to establish a TCC Alumni Nursing Association as part of the 50th anniversary celebration. The association will support the mission of Tarrant County College through professional development, networking and scholarship opportunities for alumni.

The graduating class heard words of wisdom from keynote speaker Phyllis Norman, former vice president of patient services for Texas Health Resources Harris Methodist; Vicki Brockman, chief nursing officer at Texas Health Resources Cleburne; and TCC Board of Trustees President Louise Appleman, a 1962 graduate of the nursing program at Texas Women’s University.  Each spoke about nursing opportunities in the region and the need for lifelong learning.

TCC Student Earns Top North American Score in Networking Competition

FORT WORTH, Texas (May 15, 2017) – Tarrant County College Northeast  students excelled in this year’s Cisco Networking Academy NetRiders competitions—interactive information technology exams and networking simulations open to students throughout the United States and Canada.

 

In the final round of the CCENT (Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician) contest, Jonathan McMillan earned the highest score of the 287 U.S. and Canadian finalists.

 

Wayne Morgan placed second out of 202 North American finalists in the IT Essentials portion of the competition. Morgan also placed 15th in the CCENT competition.

 

Andrew Twist placed 31st in CCENT, while Michael Dutton came in at 67th place. In the CCNA (Cisco Certified Networking Associate) contest, James Richardson placed sixth out of 116 round-two qualifiers. He will now move on to the CCNA North American finals.

 

“These competitions give students an opportunity to demonstrate their IT skill set and gain valuable industry-recognized experience,” said Ken Moak, department chair for information technology and computer science at TCC Northeast. “We are extremely proud of our students. Their performance is a direct reflection of their dedication to the field and the outstanding preparation they receive from our faculty and staff.”

 

TCC’s Computer Science & Information Technology program offers certificates of completion and associate degrees in areas including network support, programming, security, web/internet services, convergence technologies (only at TCC Northeast) and game programming (only at TCC South). The departments also offer special topics courses to upgrade the skills of information technology professionals.

 

What’s stopping you? When the hits kept coming, graduate and mom of four stayed focused on her goal

The pathway to TCC’s 2017 commencement ceremony was not easy for Ashley Calvillo. The mother of four children under the age of seven, Calvillo juggled family life along with school—and family life was anything but simple.
 
In fall 2015, Calvillo says she discovered toxic mold in her rental home. Her husband worked out of town, so Calvillo was solely responsible for their emergency move. Just when they were getting settled in with family, she found herself facing another crisis.
 
“My two-year-old son became very ill,” she recalled. “He was diagnosed with pneumonia and now has asthma as a result. He had several ER trips, an ambulance ride and a night in the hospital.”
 
While her son Dominic recovered, medical bills lingered, and at precisely the wrong time.
 
“As hospital bills started rolling in, the amount of work at my husband’s job decreased dramatically. He received only one paycheck in a three-month period,” Calvillo said.
 
Her husband found a new job closer to home, but took a significant pay cut in the process. The family is still recovering financially, staying with relatives to save money.
 
“It’s very difficult,” she admitted. “I have to remind myself that I’m not defined by my circumstances. I am taking care of my children, meeting all of their needs and investing in my education to better our future.”
 
Calvillo took a big step toward that better future this month when she received her Associate of Arts in Teaching for grades 6-12. It’s Calvillo’s second degree; she completed an Associate of Arts at TCC in 2013. And that one wasn’t easy to earn either.
 
“At one point I was nursing my firstborn, working full time and going to school full time,” said Calvillo. “It was a lot, but TCC was there for me. When I felt the call to teaching, I decided that TCC would be the best place to start because it was a wonderful experience the first time around.”
 
Surprised that this busy mom was able to complete her studies? Don’t be. Calvillo has been overcoming challenges since she was a little girl. At nine years old, she was in a rollover accident.
 
“Our vehicle lost a tire and flipped multiple times,” she remembered. “My mother was not wearing a seatbelt as far as I know.”
 
Calvillo lost her mother that day.
 
“Since I witnessed the accident, I suffer PTSD when driving. It is very hard for me to drive past car accidents as well,” Calvillo said.
 
But she manages to channel her grief and anxiety into something more positive: “It has encouraged me to always drive defensively, advocate for seatbelt usage and pass on the importance of vehicle safety to my children.”
 
Calvillo is honoring her mother in another way; teaching was her mother’s career goal. And those around Calvillo say she’s made for the profession.
 
“Ashley is passionate about her decision to become a teacher and motivated to succeed. She is very focused and driven, even in the face of adversity,” said Shereah Taylor, Ed.D., associate professor and coordinator of the teacher education program.
 
Taylor asked Calvillo to get involved with the South Campus chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, the international honor society for education. Calvillo immediately began taking part in the organization, attending meetings, literacy night at a local elementary school and professional development opportunities. This spring she helped organize the induction ceremony for new members. Involvement in Kappa Delta Pi had double benefits for Calvillo—she grew professionally and had something to think about besides the challenges at home. On campus and in the field, those challenges could be set aside.
 
“Whether she’s engaged in class dialogues or tutoring one-on-one with K-12 students, Ashley is entirely sincere and attached,” said Jeff Herr, Ed.D., adjunct professor of philosophy and education. “She has a knack for tuning in wholly and respectfully with all whom she encounters. This characteristic enables Ashley to understand the struggles of others so as to better aid in working toward solutions.”
 
Herr did not let Calvillo give up when circumstances started to feel like too much to handle.
 
“His class was more than a class,” Calvillo said. “It was an escape from the defeat I was feeling. If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t have applied to walk at graduation. He made me realize I needed to walk because I worked so hard and deserve this.”
 
And walk she did on May 16 at the Fort Worth Convention Center, accepting her diploma with happy tears.
 
“I’m so relieved that it is done,” she said. “I’m going to look back on all those late nights, all the times my kids said, ‘Are you done with homework yet?’ and ‘I don’t want you to go to class’—I’m going to look back at all the obstacles and be so thankful that I finished.”
 
And while she finished her Associate of Arts in Teaching, Calvillo isn’t finished with her education. This fall, she will transfer to Texas Wesleyan University—on full scholarship—to work toward her bachelor’s degree in early childhood education. Her professors have no doubt that she will continue to succeed. It’s just part of who she is.
 
“Ashley sees the best in others. This mindset has helped to keep Ashley positive through the struggles and hardships that life has thrown her way,” Herr explained. “Her faith in a higher power and in the goodness of humanity drives her forward. Ashley knows what joy is and that she is a big part of making that joy come to fruition.”

TCC to Graduate Record Number of ECHS Students

FORT WORTH, Texas (May 15, 2017) Tarrant County College will graduate its largest number of Early College High School graduates during its 49th Annual Spring Commencement on Tuesday, May 16. Two ceremonies will be held at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. in the Fort Worth Convention Center, 1201 Houston Street.
 
One hundred-eleven students are receiving their associate degrees from two TCC Early College High Schools prior to receiving their high school diplomas. Students are graduating from Marine Creek Collegiate High School (MCCHS) located at TCC Northwest Campus and the Texas Academy of Biomedical Sciences (TABS) at TCC’s Trinity River Campus. TCC conferred its first associate degrees to Early College High School students in 2014 to 11 students from MCCHS.
 
A total of 7,566 TCC graduates are expected to receive 8,887 degrees and certificates for the summer and fall 2016 and spring 2017. The total is nearly 15 percent more than the actual 6,590 students who graduated in spring 2016. Of the number of degrees and certificates expected to be awarded this spring, more than 6,000 are being awarded because of TCC’s special outreach efforts to eligible graduates to ensure they know when they have met graduation requirements. An additional 225 are reverse-transfer graduates, meaning they have already graduated from four-year institutions.

Toyota Partners with Tarrant County College to Launch Industry-Leading T-TEN Training Program

Partnership helps address critical skills gap in the automotive industry

 

FORT WORTH, Texas (May, 8, 2017) – With total new vehicle sales in the U.S. topping $995 billion, dealerships with more than 300 million repair orders, and with service and parts sales of nearly $110 billion, the demand for talented and qualified automotive technicians continues to increase. To address this growing need, Toyota Motor North America (TMNA) and Gulf States Toyota (GST) announced today at an event that they are partnering with Tarrant County College (TCC) to bring state-of-the-art automotive training through the Toyota Technician Training and Education Network (T-TEN) to Fort Worth. The program will start with a cohort of 22 students and is scheduled to start in the fall of 2018.

 

“This partnership is a huge win for Tarrant County College and all of North Texas,” said Dr. Peter Jordan, president of Tarrant County College South Campus. “It means TCC faculty are in a position to offer another dimension to the automotive technology curriculum we deliver. Students will have the opportunity to acquire additional skills and national certification in a burgeoning industry; increasing their employability and earning potential. For Toyota and Lexus, this partnership creates a ready pool of highly skilled potential employees to meet growing workforce demands.”

 

T-TEN was launched in 1986 to provide a strong pipeline of talented, career-minded, highly trained service technicians for Toyota and Lexus dealerships. The program typically offers a class size of 20 to 25 students per year and leverages Toyota’s industry-leading training with both a classroom and hands-on laboratory setting over a period of 24 months. In order to enter the program, students must demonstrate a passion for the career and an aptitude to learn the skills necessary to perform as a service bay technician.  The training also includes a paid internship experience for students at a local dealership as they pursue certifications for Toyota and Lexus vehicles. T-TEN has placed thousands of certified technicians in the service departments of nearly 1,500 dealerships around the country.

 

“T-TEN was conceived more than 30 years ago to ensure our dealers have a source of highly-trained, entry-level technicians and to support America’s Career and Technical education system,” said Chris Nielsen, executive vice president of product support, and chief quality officer of Toyota Motor North America. “Over 11,000 graduates have started their career through T-TEN, and, today, TCC joins a community of 37 schools providing industry-leading and occupationally-aligned automotive training.”

 

The event held on Monday to announce the new program was attended by executives from TMNA, GST, TCC, and other state and local dignitaries, including U.S. Representative Marc Veasey. At the event, it was announced that Toyota has already provided 12 training vehicles and plans to provide an additional 12 vehicles over the next 18 months for the program, allowing students access to modern vehicle technology. The TCC program is the fifth school in the region and its graduates are destined to be placed where GST and Lexus Southern dealers are located in a five state region that includes Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oklahoma.

 

“Our mission, in partnership with Toyota dealers, is to support programs that create tomorrow’s Toyota technician, acknowledging that a skills gap truly exists and it’s a challenge we have to overcome,” said Jeff Parent, the president of Gulf States Toyota. “Partnering with TCC to bring this curriculum to Fort Worth is one way to overcome that challenge, and we want to help interested, qualified students pursue a career in the technical field by providing them with the resources and skillset that Toyota believes are essential for success.”

Fire Service Training Center
4801 Marine Creek Pkwy., Fort Worth

 
FORT WORTH, Texas (May 4, 2017) – Ever wanted to be a firefighter? Now is your chance to try the profession. The Tarrant County College Fire Service Training Center will host the Fire Recruit Expo this Saturday, May 6, 8 a.m. to noon at Northwest Campus.
