Roberson, 88, was TCC’s second chancellor. He died Monday after a short illness. Friends and colleagues said they will remember him as a hardworking leader. Roberson was named chancellor of TCC, formerly called Tarrant County Junior College District, in 1989, succeeding founding Chancellor Joe B. Rushing. Roberson served as vice president for business when the college was established in 1966. Roberson retired from TCC on Aug. 31, 1996.
