The stories we shared here are just a sample of the stellar work GTF’s partners are doing across Texas. They represent the strong commitment to students, willingness to tackle tough challenges, and patient collaboration that characterize all our friends and colleagues who seek to advance the state’s educational and economic well-being. With time and resources, these efforts will continue to deepen their roots and spread their reach.

GTF aims to be an exceptional partner in improving students’ preparation for, access to, persistence in, and completion of a postsecondary credential. In 2018, you can expect us to renew our commitment to this goal. Under the leadership of our new President and CEO, Sue McMillin, we continue to build staff capacity so we can focus on our relationships with partners, improve our grant application process, make key resources easier to access on our website, and broaden our network so we can better serve as a connector and convener. We will continue to analyze the impact of our strategy and scan the horizon for new opportunities to serve while continuing to support the strong efforts already underway in Texas.

We are glad to move forward with our work, and we are glad we get to do that work with you.
