SECC 202020 Theme - TWU +  Community = Belonging

Our Goal

Dallas, Denton, & Houston
$100,000 & 100% Participation

COVID-19 has impacted each of us; our families and friends; and our local, national, and global communities. Many of those who have been hit the hardest are those who were already the most in need.  Historically, TWU employees have been very gracious in their giving through the State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) and we look forward to continuing this tradition. Every dollar raised helps those in need.  TWU has won multiple awards for participation and per capita giving in the State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC).

Special Thanks to our Prize Sponsors!

Thank you to the TWU Foundation who has made it possible for us to continue with the $1000 student scholarship that will be awarded as part of the Bettye Myers Challenge. Thank you to the Chancellor's Office and Chartwells who have provided all the TWU Dining Dollars so that we could award great event prizes to the participant winners given the current challenges our local businesses are facing. TWU Dining Dollar prizes can be used at any TWU Dining Facility and are good through September 2021 (in case facilities are currently closed)!
