Texas College ‘accredited’ twice recently

Texas College recently announced two accreditation decisions for the institution.

The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools awarded the status of “accredited” without any sanctions and no further reports due to the college, according to an email.

The Texas Education Agency also awarded the status of “accredited” to the Teacher Preparation Program.

“These are Herculean accomplishments and ones that I hope we can all be proud of,” college President Dr. Dwight Fennell said, according to the email. “Thank all of you who assisted in making this possible. I declare that God has His hands on this institution and we continue to have a mighty work ahead of us.”

Carter BloodCare drapes graduates in red cords

Carter BloodCare’s Red Cord Honors Program awarded more than 1,300 red honor cords to seniors from more than 40 area high schools.

The students could wear the cords during their graduation ceremony, according to a news release about it.

The students also received certificates acknowledging their involvement in the effort to save lives through blood donation. 

High school seniors who donated blood at least twice in their senior year could participate in the program, according to the news release.

Students who cannot donate because of age, weight or medical restrictions may be eligible for the program by volunteering in their high school blood drives.
