20/20 to feature TCU student, vice chancellor

Members of the TCU community will be on ABC’s news program 20/20 tonight, covering the topic of the growing relationship between parents and college students and how universities can contribute to parental involvement.Don Mills, vice chancellor for student affairs, and Heather Fagan, a sophomore education major, will be on the program at 9 p.m. today on Channel 8.

In recent years, students have been staying in closer contact with their parents, and parents have been more active with their children’s education, Mills said.

“I’m very excited and nervous how it will turn out,” he said.

Shawn Kornegay, assistant director of communications, said 20/20 contacted Fagan for the program and TCU recommended Mills.

Mills has had more than 35 years of experience in student affairs and is knowledgeable and qualified to be one of the featured experts for the show, Kornegay said.
