WHO ARE WE Texarkana USA?
We are ONE OF A KIND
with an authentic potential for excellence which is SECOND TO NONE
We are a unique community–one with a creative heritage that is second to none – and a creative spirit of ingenuity and excellence that has been the community’s authentic hallmark throughout its 150-year history.
Creativity and excellence ARE our heritage. Pioneering Texarkanians have been creatively challenging one another across a stripe in the road for over a century, to make THEIR half of this twin community ever more wonderful. And it shows. From our architectural legacy to our must-have get-along attitude, from our natural green beauty to our pursuit of educational excellence, and beyond, we believe that what Texarkana offers is ONE OF A KIND AND SECOND TO NONE.
As we grow into our ever-evolving 21st Century world reality, we recognize the profound implication and value of Texarkana’s authentic creative potential, realizing that in today’s world, every smart community’s capacity and future will be directly linked to its creative resources.
Consequently, our future rests on building Texarkana pride, fostering our creative excellence and the legacy of Texarkanians for being creative, turned-on, tuned-in and connected. We need to understand–and celebrate–who we are and can be, building on the iconic legacies of Texarkana-natives from Scott Joplin to Conlon Nancarrow to Ross Perot, unleashing our talent and ingenuity and celebrating the potential we EACH have to leave a mark on the world through our individual and collective creative endeavors.
