Redwater Elementary-Third Grade

Dear Santa,

 

Hello! It’s been a long time since I talked to you, and I want to say hi! This year I’ve been wanting to talk to you for a while. This year I alone want 5 things. I want skates, art supplies, a hula-hoop, a jump-a-rope, and last but not least I want a phone. I also want a few extra gifts to give to charity. Thank you for all your help!

 

Your friend,

TC Notes-Stay Connected with Texarkana College through Social Media Platforms

For many college students, Instagram provides an ideal way to share their lives with their friends—and for many prospective college students, Instagram is a great way to gauge what daily life is like at the colleges or universities they’re considering attending. 
To be a part of that conversation, Texarkana College has added a new voice to its social media strategy: student Instagrammer Harper McKnight, a general studies major with a passion for digital communication. For the past semester, Harper has documented Texarkana College life at @txkcollege from a student’s perspective, with engaging stories and candid profiles of students and employees. Beyond Instagram, Harper also had the opportunity to ride along and interview Texas State Rep. Gary VanDeaver as he took the first Uber ride in Texarkana from the TC campus earlier this semester.
