HALL OF FAME LOGOBy Benny Rogers/TVCC Sports Information

Seven new members have been selected to become the 2015 class for the Cardinal Hall of Fame at Trinity Valley Community College.

The hall of fame’s eighth class is scheduled to be inducted on Saturday, Oct. 24, at 11 a.m. Tickets for the induction luncheon are $15 and will be available at the door of the Student Union Building ballroom.

“First and foremost, I think it is extremely special that a small East Texas community college such as our can have such a rich tradition of successful athletic programs and athletes,” said TVCC athletic director Brad Smiley, who also serves on the selection committee. “Trinity Valley is the premier junior college athletics program in the nation today, and this year’s hall of fame inductees, as well as their predecessors who have already been inducted, are some of the greatest in their respective sports that have ever participated at this level.

Press release

Do you sing? Play an instrument? TVCC wants you! It’s a proven fact that music will make you smarter in other subjects, and scholarships are available if you qualify. So no matter what your field of study, consider adding choir or band to your fall schedule.

Singers of all abilities are encouraged to audition for a place in the TVCC Choir. You don’t have to have previous choral experience or be a music major, just be able to match pitch.

And the Cardinal Regiment is seeking experienced band members to join their ranks. If you played an instrument and/or marched in high school, you could be on the field and in the parades this fall.

Be sure you get a well-rounded education. For more information, call the TVCC Fine Arts Department in Athens, 903-675-6351 or email mmatchael@tvcc.edu.
