Torchbearers are volunteers approved by academic component leadership whose job is to inspire and rally the TWU community during the SECC fundraising campaign. 

In order to ensure the safety of our Torchbearers, you will not be asked to collect or handle donation forms submitted by faculty and staff.  Rather, we will be encouraging donors to utilize our online donation submission system. Donors who wish to submit physical donation forms and cash or checks will be asked to send them directly to our SECC committee via snail or campus mail. 

THE TORCHBEARER'S PRIMARY ROLE will be to act as the contact point for your group should they have any questions, disseminate information to encourage participation, and assist in coordinating your group's participation in event activities.

If you have questions, please contact Nora Sierra at or 940-898-3352.
