Tyler ISD Celebrates LINK Students, Graduates

At a special ceremony this morning, Tyler ISD celebrated the achievements of nine students from the District’s LINK program, three of which graduated and received their diplomas. The Learning Independence and New Knowledge (LINK) program, located on the Tyler Junior College (TJC) West Campus and in businesses throughout the community, helps students with special needs develop vocational and independent living skills.

“Our LINK program is important because it gets our students ready for employment in supported, sheltered, or independent work environments,” Superintendent Dr. Marty Crawford said. “It brings so much pride and joy to see our students succeed after graduation due to the independent skills they learn through the LINK program.”

Guest speakers for the ceremony included Dr. Crawford and Dr. Deana Sheppard, provost and vice president for academic and student affairs at TJC.
