REPORTS/ANNOUNCEMENTS – Employee Groups
TCFA President Maggie Hahn Wade commented on the wonderful time had on Saturday (at commencement). She related the story of a student hunting for his instructor, but the instructor was not present because he is part-time. Ms. Hahn Wade opined that more full-time faculty are needed, as more have been lost than have been hired. She complimented the administration and Board on the speaker who so engaged the audience.
