Past Winners of the TYCA Fame Award


*At the 2011 CCCC Conference in Atlanta, a motion was brought before the TYCA Executive Committee: That the Public Image Committee focus exclusively on positive images of two-year colleges and the committee revise the name of the Awards to represent this change in mission. The motion carried. It was then brought before the NCTE Executive Committee in July 2011, and was approved to make the change to the “TYCA Fame Award.”
