At the Regional Sites
TTU at Hill College Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
by Timothy Howard, Digital Media Coordinator
The newest Texas Tech University regional teaching site recently opened in Cleburne, Texas, as a partnership between Hill College and TTU. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on the December 13, 2016, to welcome TTU at Hill College to the family of TTU regional teaching sites and celebrate their new membership in the Cleburne Chamber of Commerce.
"TTU at Hill College is the latest addition to the family of Texas Tech University regional sites and is primed to grow and to have a positive impact on educational attainment in the region," said the Director of TTU at Hill College Dr. Lewis Snell. "Joining the Cleburne Chamber of Commerce was another step in our partnership with Hill College and becoming a more active participant in the community of the city of Cleburne. Our hope is to grow enrollment as the city of Cleburne continues to grow and prosper."
Texas Tech University Vice Provost Dr. Melanie Hart, Hill College President Dr. Pamela Boehm, Congressman Roger Williams, TTU employees and Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors were present to celebrate the occasion.
"Dr. Boehm has been supportive at each step of the way and we could not have scheduled the ribbon cutting ceremony without her," said Snell. "Dr. Hart was instrumental in developing, announcing and delivering programming to Hill College. Her presence made the event more special. On top of that, having Congressman Williams was a pleasant surprise and we were honored that he found time to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony."
When asked about the upcoming future of TTU at Hill College, Dr. Snell replied," We will be working closely with Hill College and the Chamber of Commerce to develop new degree options that will benefit The City of Cleburne and Johnson County."
