ACC Awarded Power Grant from TNMP
The Alvin Community College Foundation received a Texas New Mexico Power Grant to improve safety.
The $9,750 Power Grant from TNMP will go towards an initiative to improve security on campus that includes 40 new, enhanced lock systems on doors throughout the campus. The new locks will allow people inside the room to lock the door more securely in the event of an emergency situation.
“The Foundation’s purpose for the grant project was to improve safety across ACC’s main campus from violent intruders,” Foundation executive director Wendy Del Bello said. “The acquisition and use of these locking systems is making our campus safer and providing a greater sense of comfort to the minds of students and employees in their daily lives at ACC.”
ACC plans to install more of the secure locks throughout the entire campus.
The TCMP Power Grant program seeks to provide improvements in communities and schools including community safety, community outreach, education and more.
