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 was a TABPHE Life Member and supported the vision and mission of TABPHE.
This fund covers TABPHE lifetime membership dues for two Dallas College employees. The first membership will be awarded to a Dallas College Richland Campus employee and the second membership will be available to other qualified Dallas College employees. The award will be dispersed prior to TABPHE’s Annual State Conference and the recipient will be acknowledged during the Conference Banquet.
All funds donated ultimately provide annual TABPHE scholarships to deserving community college, undergraduate and graduate students across the state of Texas.
