This year’s COVID restrictions meant that for the first time since 2008, NTCC honors students were not able to travel as a group to the Dallas-Fort Worth area for the annual fall trip.  However, thanks to donors, administrators, and the Daingerfield Park staff, the group was able to travel as individuals to the patio of a local coffee shop, and then to one of the state’s most picturesque parks, Daingerfield on 25 September.  

Do you know someone who could benefit from free GED or ESL classes? The NTCC Adult Education Department offers both in a variety of convenient formats. In addition to traditional face-to-face classes at locations around the area, NTCC Adult Education also offers live remote and self-paced online options.


The 14th annual Honors Northeast Roundup occurred again this fall, 12 September, amidst an initial screening, social distancing, and individualized servings.  NTCC’s Agricultural Pavilion provided an ideal, open and covered location for the dinner, and the Ag Club directed by Rene McCracken, and led by student president, Maverick Jones provided a sumptuous and safe chili dinner. 


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA/TASFA) form must be resubmitted every academic year. Also, just because you may not have qualified during the previous year, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t apply this year as well. The FAFSA/TASFA for 2021-2022 opens on Thursday October 1, 2020, so we’re encouraging everyone to get started as soon as possible!
