Texas Southmost College was a platinum sponsor of the event held to welcome Aggie Chancellor John Sharp who unveiled plans for expansion of four-year degree programs in the Rio Grande Valley.
At the podium, Chancellor Sharp took time to recognize the TSC partnership on the Texas A&M â€“ Chevron Engineering Academy at TSC, an innovative co-enrollment program that provides students with a pathway to an engineering degree at Texas A&M University.
â€œI want to thank our community college partner – Texas Southmost College. This program gives our students a great opportunity at an engineering career while allowing them to stay home, be closer to family and save money,â€ said Chancellor Sharp.
Sharp also thanked the TSC Board of Trustees for their vision and leadership under the direction of TSC Chair Adela Garza.
â€œThis has been a wonderful collaboration of two great institutions,â€ said Garza. â€œWe look forward to the opportunity to work together on other projects including the workforce development of our region and the Port of Brownsville.â€
The Texas A&M-Chevron Engineering Academy is one of the many innovative projects supported by TSCâ€™s Board of Trustees and the TSC administration.
â€œWe will work with, and partner with, any institution for the greater good of our community, our region and, especially our students,â€ said President Jesus Roberto Rodriguez. â€œWe look forward to our continued academic collaboration at our college and workforce development at the Port of Brownsville.â€
