The Vickie Lynn Allen TABPHE Life Membership Grant

The Vickie Lynn Allen Texas Association of Black Professionals in Higher Education (TABPHE) Life Membership Grant was created by Dr. Steve Mittelstet (past Richland College President) on behalf of former Richland College student and long-time Richland College employee Vickie Lynn Allen. Vickie Lynn introduced Dr. Mittelstet to TABPHE, urging him to encourage Richland employees to participate and support its good work for Texas higher education employees and students, which he did. Dr. Mittelstet is now a TABPHE Life Member and supports the vision and mission of TABPHE.
