A power outage on the Main Tyler Junior College campus
today forced the cancellation of an SAT exam and the postponement of men's and

The outage occurred about 11:20 a.m.
Students taking the SAT exam in Jenkins Hall were asked to
leave and the exam was canceled.
Two residence halls were not affected by the power outage,
which involved a main power line near the intersection of Baxter Avenue and
Lake Street. Hudnall Hall and Bateman Hall both have full electrical power.
Men's and women's basketball games against Paris Junior

Resident students of halls without power will be offered
the opportunity to move temporarily to Bateman and Hudnall halls.
