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 – 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.

“I 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,†said Chancellor Sharp.
