Support students in need

Here at TSTC, we are Texas. Our mission is to supply Texas businesses and industry with skilled, capable employees.  We help build the workforce that is the foundation for a more vital state.

Sometimes our students face challenges like late financial aid, no gas to get to school, or the cost of textbooks and equipment. With your help, they can overcome these hurdles. We want to make sure our students reach their goals and achieve their overall potential.

TSTC students thrive with additional support they receive from you.
"Helping to take some of the financial burdens off of these students and allow them to focus on their work, studies and families has been critical in allowing many students to complete the program."

Edna Posada

“I was confident in my skills because of the hands-on training.”

Edna comes from a humble background but wanted to continue her education; it’s always been important to her. She chose TSTC because it was close to home and offered programs she was interested in. She quickly realized that not only was she getting a great education, but her instructors were also welcoming. Edna notes that her instructors made sure “you were successful and that you knew what you were doing once you graduated.”

After graduation, Edna got a good job but soon realized she was an entrepreneur at heart. Using her savings, she took the plunge and launched her own business. Today she owns three cosmetic franchises, two spa locations, a boutique, a barbershop, and an online store.

Edna credits TSTC with giving her the perspective she needed to build a business using IT to manage multiple locations. Her education has been crucial to her ability to stay ahead and remain profitable. And she finds it very fulfilling to give back to her community and mentor young men and women.

“When I fell on hard times I nearly dropped out because I didn’t have a way to get to school. But today, I’m a TSTC graduate thanks to the Snyder Helping Hands scholarship!”
