Special Education Teacher's Assistant for Madisonville Intermediate School
This is my fourth year serving on the Board of Trustees.
My favorite part of TTU is the size of the campus and the distance from my house.
I chose to serve on the board of trustees because I wanted to stay informed about what was going on at TTU and stay involved as a parent.
The TTUPA is important to TTU because it helps us as parents stay in touch with what is going in at TTU and how parents can become involved.
I see the TTUPA in next 5 to 10 years really growing and able to do more fun things and activities for the students.
I currently have two children at TTU. One is in his fourth year as an Exercise Science Major in Athlete Training and a freshman in nursing.
One of the struggles that parents face with college students is letting go of their child and not knowing what is going on in their lives. It can be really hard to cope with and that is why the TTUPA can be such a helpful outlet for parents dealing with those issues.
My advice to other parents of college students is to simply get involved with the TTUPA.
