Tyler Junior College will give raises to full-time employees for the first time in more than three years.

The TJC board of trustees approved the salary proposal this morning during its regularly schedule board meeting.

More than 600 employees will receive a 2 percent raise plus $500 for the 2013-14 fiscal year.

TJC President Dr. Mike Metke said he and the board of trustees appreciate the employees’ work and the success the college has had and this is a validation of that.
