Dr. Bill Coppola, president of Arlington’s Southeast Tarrant County College campus, makes his debut at the downtown lecture series and happy hour Arlington on Tap March 13 with a tantalizing topic:The talk: Community Colleges: THE answer.The place and time, March 13 (a Tuesday), 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Hooligan’s Bar in downtown Arlington, 310 E. Abram St.“Even President Trump has been chiming in lately about the role of community colleges in developing a skilled workforce, but I Coppola has been a regional and national leader on that particular topic for a couple of decades,” said Mark Joeckel, a founder of Arlington on Tap along with former Arlington Star-Telegram Publisher O.K. Carter.Before joining TCC, Coppola worked with both Lone Star College and Dallas County Community College. He’s a former recipient of the Innovator of the Year Award in higher education, as well as the winner of the national Excellence inTeaching Award.Carter, himself a former TCC trustee, said far too few people were acquainted with community college advantages, ranging from early enrollment andcredit while still in high school to access to a multitude of well-paying vocational jobs through either certification or a two-year associate’s degree.“Both parents and their children can saddle themselves with enormous debt in the tens of thousands of dollars even if they’re attending a conventional four-year public college or university,” Carter said. “By contrast it’s entirely possible to attend a fully-accredited community college full time with tuition and books for a thousand bucks a semester, so it makes dollars and sense to attend a community college first, even if the idea is to eventually transfer to a four-year college.“We also live in a workforce environment where constant retraining is often necessary even for older member, sometimes just requiring a course or two – or a certification — to cash in on job opportunities with higher pay. So, Coppola is correct – community colleges are the affordable, accessible answer to a lot of career dilemmas.”Coppola will deliver what he promises will be a “scintillating” review of the possibilities in 30 minutes or less.Arlington on Tap sessions are free, no RSVP required. Sponsors include the Arlington Historical Society, Arlington Proud and Arlington Today Magazine
