CORINTH - The Honorable Judge Mary Horn visited North Central Texas College's Corinth campus recently to tour the campus and discuss the rapid enrollment growth at NCTC.

Judge Horn, who has been a Denton County Judge since 2002, was welcomed by NCTC representatives including President Dr. Eddie Hadlock.

NCTC Denton County Dean Roy Culberson welcomed Judge Horn at a breakfast.

"We are proud to have the Honorable Judge Horn here on our Corinth campus," he said. "We have a great deal of opportunities for students and we want the community to know that we are here to serve the community."

Also on hand was NCTC student Michelle Boulden, who discussed the importance of education and how NCTC helped her become the successful student she is today.

"The people at NCTC have helped me in ways that I couldn't imagine," Boulden said. She went on to describe the importance of NCTC to everyone in the community.

Gerald Robinson of the Denton County Foundation Board also explained to Horn the importance of having NCTC in Denton County.

"If it wasn't for the community college, I wouldn't have been as successful as I am today," he said. Robinson went on to say that the affordability of community college gave him access to higher education.

Judge Horn has many distinctions and belongs to several committees, which has allowed her to become familiar with NCTC and its growth.

"I knew the population at the Corinth campus was growing, I just didn't realize how large NCTC has become," Judge Horn said while meeting with Dr. Hadlock and NCTC Vice-President of Institutional Advancement Debbie Sharp.

Sharp highlighted the incredible growth of NCTC's Denton County campuses in Corinth and Flower Mound. Sharp explained that both campuses are experiencing record enrollments. Horn was interested to hear that Fall 2013 enrollment system-wide proved to be the largest in NCTC's long history. With over 6,000 students registered, the Corinth campus has a larger student population than the other four campuses combined.
