ASU Forges Link with Roscoe ISD, WTC

November 30, 2011

Angelo State University has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Roscoe Independent School District (RISD) and Western Texas College (WTC) to allow Roscoe Collegiate High School (RCHS) graduates to seamlessly transfer and continue their education at ASU.

Dr. Joseph C. Rallo, ASU president; Dr. Mike Dreith, WTC president; and Dr. Kim Alexander, RISD superintendent, signed the memorandum at a Nov. 29 ceremony in Roscoe.  Rallo and Dreith also signed an updated articulation agreement between ASU and WTC, which has been in effect since 1997. 

RCHS evolved from a collaborative partnership between the RISD, Texas State Technical College-Sweetwater and WTC.  Located in Nolan County near Sweetwater, RCHS serves a majority Hispanic and economically disadvantaged student population with a mission of providing students with an accelerated education leading to an associate‚Äôs degree or as many as 60 college credit hours from WTC upon graduation.

Others attending the ceremony from ASU were Steven Klein, associate vice president for enrollment management, and Dallas Swafford, assistant director of transfer services.  Additional WTC representatives were Roy Bartels, dean of technology; Ralph Ramon, dean of student services; Kyle Smith, dean of instruction; and Tammy Wesson, director of distance learning.  Jacob Tiemann, director of RCHS, also attended the ceremony.
