We hope to see you at the annual TSC Staff Recognition Program Wednesday, April 25 hosted at Harrison High School. The times have been adjusted slightly this year to better accommodate evening schedules; 5:45 pm reception and program at 6:30 pm. Also new for this year is a TSC 40-Year Service Award. It's remarkable that TSC has so many individuals who have worked in the TSC for 40 years or more and we want to be able to recognize them. Please attend April 25 and help recognize our amazing TSC employees.
