2020 Celebrating Strides
Celebrating Strides in Athlietics, featuring guest speaker Michael Byars.
Celebrating Strides is Tarrant County College District’s celebration and recognition of African American Heritage.
Mike Byars was an All-American basketball player in high school, attending Dunbar high school in Ft. Worth, Texas. After high school, he attended both the University of Miami and Northwestern St. University where he excelled. Mike would go onto an eleven year professional basketball career that spanned the globe.
After basketball, Byars started a youth enrichment program (Mike Byars Skills Academy) that was rooted in athletics, education and social activity. He worked from 2015-2017 at KPFK radio in Los Angeles, California, as a certified radio
recorder and broadcaster.
Today, Byars is a filmmaker and the CEO of his own production company, Major Minority Media. His debut film 5700 Ramey Avenue will be shown at TCC South during African-American Heritage Month, inconjunction with Celebrating Strides.
The program will focus on the celebration of our TCC students and employees. Attendees can expect community guest presentations, student perspectives, interactive activities, giveaways and more.
