NCTC President Releases Statement About Deadly Crash

      North Central Texas College President G. Brent Wallace released this statement about the deadly accident last night. 

     As each of you can imagine words are difficult this morning.  Last evening the North Central Texas College Girls Softball Team was involved in a major accident around 9:00 PM on Interstate 35 in Southern Oklahoma.  The NCTC Police Department is waiting on official notification from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol before releasing any further details.  We are aware of 4 fatalities, but are not yet able to release the names.

     On behalf of the NCTC Board of Regents, Administration, Faculty, and Staff I would like to offer sincere condolences to these families.  This is indeed a sad day for these families and for North Central Texas College.   Please continue to pray for all these young ladies and the families of those who have lost loved ones. 

     NCTC counselors are available for students and staff on the Gainesville Campus today Saturday, September 27, 2014 and will continue to be available as the students work through this tragic event. 

     A prayer vigil is scheduled for Sunday, September 28, 2014, 8:00 PM at the NCTC Gainesville Campus.  This will give families, students, faculty, staff and community a time to reflect on these precious young ladies and their families. 

     Further information will be provided as it becomes available.  NCTC staff will be updating the college website on a regular basis to keep the community informed.
