Former Dallas Cowboys player and Flower Mound resident Chad Hennings recently took a tour of the North Central Texas College Flower Mound campus.
Hennings, a defensive tackle for the Cowboys from 1992–2000 with three Super Bowl rings and now a commercial real estate executive, visited with representatives of NCTC to discuss the rapid enrollment growth at the campus.
Hennings was impressed by the growth of the college that opened their Parker Square campus in January 2011 and is already bursting at the seams.
“As the newest campus in the NCTC family, we are proud that the enrollment at NCTC Flower Mound is up 11 percent from fall 2012,” said Jessica DeRoche, Director of the NCTC Flower Mound campus.
One of the ways the college is helping busy students, according to DeRoche, is to offer eight-week classes instead of the traditional 16-week classes. In the past, short semester classes were not offered during the fall semester.
“The students seem to like the eight-week semester,” DeRoche said.
