Vision Dinner 2021

Join Us in Celebrating our 50 years

Vision Dinner

Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021
6 p.m. Reception, 7 p.m. Dinner and Program
Cox Business Convention Center

Our annual Vision Dinner continues to celebrate leaders who value education and have made a difference in our community. This year’s event continues in that same spirit, but instead of one outstanding honoree, we are celebrating our TCC 50 Notable Alumni, a group of amazing individuals who helped make TCC and their communities what they are today.

Please join us for a memorable night as we reflect on TCC’s history, celebrate our 50 Notables, and look to the future of higher education in Tulsa. Oh, and we will also dance the night away with live music featuring musicians from the Signature Symphony at TCC!

We have a lot to celebrate and we want you to be a part of it.
