A 47-foot clock tower will stand tall in the Bob McDonald Plaza at Trinity Valley Community College in 2019, thanks to financial support from a generous donor.
“My wife and I have enjoyed supporting scholarships and programs at Trinity Valley Community College for many years,” said donor Frank Johns. “My loving wife, Ethel, passed away in May this year, and donating the funds to build this beautiful clock tower is a tangible way that I’m able to honor her memory. My hope is that the clock tower becomes an icon on the TVCC campus for many years.”
