School Notes

  • Henderson County Junior College was founded by a group of Athens civic leaders, headed by J. P. Pickens and Orval Pirtle, and public school administrators in late 1945 and early 1946. The creation of Henderson County Junior College was formally approved by voters in the election of May 4, 1946. The first registration was conducted in temporary facilities at Athens High School on June 3, 1946, and three days later classes began there. The Board of Trustees provided Henderson County Junior College with its own facilities at the present location of the Henderson County Campus on June 24, 1946. The College moved to its new campus for the beginning of the fall semester, 1946. As a result of the continued regional expansion of the College, the Board of Trustees authorized and approved a name change from Henderson County Junior college to Trinity Valley Community College in September, 1986, with campus designations: Athens - Henderson County Campus, Palestine - Anderson County Campus, Terrell - Kaufman County Campus and Kaufman - Health Science Center. The facilities include general classrooms; modern laboratories for science and appropriate occupational programs; a modern well equipped Learning Resources Center; a men and women's physical education building; a well equipped instruction media center; and a Student Union building. A modern, well equipped green house is available to students in the Horticulture, Ranch Management and Agriculture Programs. Trinity Valley Community College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award the Associate of Arts degree, Associate of Science degree, and Associate of Applied Science degree.
