Points of Pride
- Ïã½¶ÊÓÆµCCH-T celebrated a 35 percent increase in enrollment from the fall of 2006 through the fall of 2012. Â This enrollment growth has been matched by increasing graduation rates, with the largest graduation to date being held in May of 2011 when 574 degrees and certificates were awarded, a 129 percent increase from 2007-08.
- Ïã½¶ÊÓÆµCCH-T recently completed the construction of an additional instructional facility in Texarkana. Ïã½¶ÊÓÆµCCH-Texarkana opened for classes in the fall of 2012, thus expanding the impact of the college into a populated area within its existing service area.
- The construction of Hempstead Hall, a 63,000 square-foot auditorium and convention center opened in the fall of 2012. This facility, located near the front entrance to the Ïã½¶ÊÓÆµCCH-T Campus along Highway 29 South, is a great addition to the community and the Ïã½¶ÊÓÆµCCH-T Campus.
