Tom Joyner Foundation Recognizes Recognizes Texas College as School of the Month (467 hits)

The Tom Joyner Foundation is recognizing Texas College in Tyler, Texas as the April 2018 School of the Month.

The foundation, formed by the nationally syndicated radio personality, chose Texas College as part of its on-going effort to assist these institutions in broadening and strengthening their efforts to raise money to help keep students attending HBCUs.

As one of the Tom Joyner Foundation ‘Schools of the Month’, Texas College will be promoted by the Tom Joyner Morning Show and receive those funds raised from listeners, alumni and other interested parties that month. The show, aired in 115 markets around the country, reaches nearly eight million listeners every week.

Celebrating 124 years of providing educational opportunities, Texas College is a historically black college founded in 1894, by a group of CME ministers. Texas College’s mission, which continues to embody the principles of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, is to ensure that the student body experiences balanced intellectual, psychological, social and spiritual development, aimed at enabling them to become active productive members of society where they live and work. Texas College is led by its 23rd President Dr. Dwight J. Fennell.

About the Tom Joyner Foundation:
The Tom Joyner Foundation's primary mission is helping to keep students enrolled in Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs.) Since 1998, the foundation, chaired by nationally syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner, has raised in excess of $65 million to help keep students enrolled in black colleges, has assisted more than 24,000 students and worked with more than 100 HBCUs. The Foundation announces the “Herc Scholars” who are distinguished male students at each ‘School of the Month’. The organization’s largest annual fundraiser is its “Fantastic Voyage”™, which is an activity-filled ‘party with a purpose’.

For information about the scholarship program, students should contact their school administrators. For more information about the Foundation, visit TomJoynerFoundation.org. For more information about Texas College, visit TexasCollege.edu.
