To encourage excellence in education by promoting and funding effective programs and ideas in the Terrell Independent School District.

Terrell ISD Excellence Foundation announced the launch of its 2014 annual fundraising campaign to raise $700,000 for ongoing grants for innovation and excellence and a special initiative to purchase and install equipment for the Terrell High School Career and Technical Education Center manufacturing program.

 To start the campaign, Danny Booth, board member for the Excellence Foundation and president, Economic Development Corporation announced a lead gift of $300,000 from the Economic Development Corporation to support the Career and Technical Education manufacturing. “This gift demonstrates the commitment of the business community in strengthening the education options for students in Terrell.”

 In partnership with Trinity Valley Community College and the local business community, TISD is developing a career path program that will align rigorous industry and academic standards.  As a graduate of this program students will earn dual credits applicable toward post-secondary education and professional certifications and skills to secure a career-wage position.  The curriculum and the instructors are in place, but professional-grade equipment must be secured to provide students with the necessary hands-on skills.  To fill this gap, the Excellence Foundation has launched a campaign to secure for funding for the purchase and installation of this equipment for the manufacturing program.
