Students Participate at TEG Day 2017
March 28, 2017
Six TLU students (Amanda Handsbur, Erica Lee, Hannah Alfred, Elissa Taylor, Garrett Chollett, and Victor Vazquez) participated in the TEG Advocacy Day at the State Capitol on March 28. They were accompanied by VPAA Debbie Cottrell, Admissions Representative Tommy Newton, and former TLU staff member Steve Anderson.
The purpose of the day was to thank legislators for the Tuition Equalization Grant that provides financial assistance to Texas students attending Texas independent institutions of higher education and to encourage them to maintain this funding in future state budgets. In addition to meeting with their own state representatives and senators, the students also had the opportunity to visit with Rep. John Kuempel of Seguin and with Mr. Luis Moreno, TLU alum, Board of Regent member, and chief of staff to Sen. Juan Hinojosa.
