A message from the TCC District Board of Trustees Chair, Mr. Eugene Lamb
am honored to serve as chair of the Tallahassee Community College (TCC)
District Board of Trustees for the second time since I joined the board in
2007. TCC’s mission is to provide a learning environment that
prepares students for success in the global economy by offering higher
education pathways, workforce opportunities and civic engagement experiences.
We are a community of learners and we
take active steps to learn as much as possible to help us achieve our mission:
We listen to our students to learn
what they need to be successful.
We listen to employers to learn what
skills our graduates need to fill in-demand jobs.
We listen to community partners to
learn how we can help improve the quality of life for everyone in the Big Bend
We join with our K-12 education
partners to learn how to help students move successfully between high school
and higher education and career opportunities.
We also work with community
organizations to meet the needs of those who might not traditionally be
considered “TCC students”—such as children in afterschool programs, teens exiting
foster care and mature adults who yearn to improve their English language
We know that every student in every program, in every
course has a dream for the future. TCC is thankful for the opportunity to be
part of those dreams.
Chair, TCC District Board of Trustees
