Events | ECTC


The Office of Cultural Diversity works across the Campus and Community to plan programming and events that celebrate and honor the diversity of Campus and our Community. Please check this page often for events.

Beacons of Light

ECTC proudly hosts Beacons of Light to recognize African American heroes in the college’s service region for their success, exemplary service to their professions and communities, and commitment to servant leadership and equity. We shine a light on these incredible members of our community not only to honor their accomplishments and service, but also to pave the way for future generations.

Nomination forms are available each fall and the honorees are celebrated in February.

2021 Beacons of Light honorees included Darian Parker, Elizabethtown Independent Schools teacher; Terrie Burgan, health promotion manager and public information officer for the Lincoln Trail Health Department; and Ed Harris, ECTC veterans affairs coordinator and lifetime NAACP member.
