KC TRIO Program to participate in annual East Texas TRIO Day

Kilgore College's TRIO Program will participate in the second annual East Texas TRIO Alliance TRIO Day on Saturday, Feb. 23, in the Apache Room on the Tyler Junior College campus.  TRIO students will participate in an art competition, talent show, essay competition and opening ceremony. 

The East Texas TRIO Alliance is comprised of Kilgore College, Tyler Junior College, Wiley College, Texas College and Texas Association of Developing Colleges Educational Opportunity Center in Longview.

This year, KC alum Don Evans will be speaking on behalf of the TRIO Program at KC.  Don is currently enrolled at UT Tyler and is expected to graduate May 2008.  He plans to pursue a master's degree in Clinical Nursing.  He was the first president of the Kilgore College TRIO Club (2004-05) and has been very active in community service.

TRIO is a program that assists students to begin and complete a post-secondary education.  The program, first introduced in 1968 under the Higher Education Act, was named TRIO because it consisted of three programs: Upward Bound, Talent Search and Student Support Services.  It now consists of seven.

The event will be open to the public for $3 and $5 for lunch. All proceeds will benefit a scholarship fund for East Texas TRIO participants.

TRIO participants' fees will be paid for, but participants need to sign up in the TRIO office, Room 123.  For more information, contact TRIO Director Bindy Tice at (903) 988-7590.
