Gov. Mary Fallin visits TCC

Gov. Mary Fallin was in T-town today, and as part of her visit she toured the Center for Creativity on the TCC Metro Campus. She saw the television production studio, radio studio, visual art/drawing studio and event space. She also spoke in a public service announcement that will be released to local media and posted on YouTube. The PSA addresses Oklahoma's effort to get more people to finish their college degrees, which is part of the Complete College America federal program.

As we all know, life can sometimes interrupt our plans to finish college. We start all excited and starry-eyed, dreaming of the future. But, life happens. Complete College America is an initiative to help and encourage people to finish those college degrees and certificates, and Oklahoma is one of the 29-member Alliance of States that has pledged to make college completion a top priority.

Have you ever had to pause your education because of one reason or another? What encouraged you to return to college and finish?
