I'm a Trailblazer!

Toro’s the name, and I’m now officially a Trailblazer! I’ll admit that I’m not like the other bulls in the Fort Worth Stockyards—which is what led me to strike out on my own in search of adventure. Finally, now that I’ve found TCC, I feel like I fit in.

About Toro

Tarrant County College welcomed me, Toro the Trailblazer, to the College family as the official College mascot in 2011. Chancellor Hadley invited me to the Employee Appreciation Breakfast and I had a blast! I have the photos to prove it.

I’m hoping to meet the people of Tarrant County, encourage them to go to college, and inspire them to come to TCC. Feel free to invite me to your event.
