Leadership Texarkana’s Wilbur Awards have been given annually since 1992, in memory of community servant and historian Wilbur Smith. Celebrating the power of one to positively impact our community, the Wilbur Awards are given in three categories: honoring adults, youth, and organizations, to individuals and groups who demonstrate exemplary leadership in the community and a commitment to working together for community excellence.
This year’s adult recipient of the Wilbur Award is Scott Norton. Scott Norton is Executive Director/CEO for TexAmericas Center. Scott has been instrumental in developing TexAmericas’ property into a first-class industrial park that will provide economic development opportunities for the Texarkana region for decades to come—a purpose that drives him daily. Scott has served on numerous nonprofit boards in various leadership roles in our area and is a one-of-a-kind force for Texarkana USA. Scott is a 2004 Graduate of Leadership Texarkana.
CONGRATULATIONS SCOTT! Thanks for all that you do for Texarkana USA!
