TTU at Collin Ranked 3rd Place for Higher Ed in McKinney

by Timothy Howard, Social Media Coordinator

The quality of the education at Texas Tech University at Collin Higher Education Center located in McKinney is gaining even more credibility. The McKinney Courier-Gazette 2016 Readers' Choice Award selected TTU at Collin as the 3rd place winner of the Best of the Best for higher education in McKinney.

Jameshia Granberry, the director of TTU at Collin, reflected on the process of establishing the regional teaching site over the last year as well as the third place ranking for higher education in McKinney.

"Over the past year, we have introduced prospective students and the community to the history and traditions of Texas Tech University," said Granberry. "I have had the opportunity to meet residents of Collin County and the excitement expressed about Tech is invigorating. Collin County has an extensive Texas Tech Alumni base that has welcomed TTU at Collin to the metroplex with open arms and support. Although we have faced some minor challenges, it is always gratifying to see students earn a Texas Tech University degree and then put that degree to work in North Texas. As we answer President Schovanec's charge of increasing the number of transfer students at Texas Tech University, we have also been very fortunate to have the support of the upper administration especially, Dr. Melanie Hart. The award confirms that all of the hard work put in daily by TTU at Collin staff and Texas Tech Administration is valued by the McKinney community."

Though they are excited about the recent ranking, Jameshia and the TTU Collin staff continue to press on towards the future. "Of course we are working on being ranked #1 for higher education in McKinney," Granberry says. "Our number one goal, though, is to deliver a high quality, higher education experience where students can earn a Texas Tech University degree and learn the true meaning of becoming a Red Raider for life."

Texas Tech University Worldwide eLearning congratulates TTU at Collin on this achievement and is thankful for all that they do to bear the TTU banners far and wide in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
