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. Continuing a Leadership Texarkana tradition practiced from the beginning of the Wilbur Awards program began, we are delighted to always lift up those nominated each for their outstanding service to our community and those who live here – such as Barbara Walker, a 2023 nominee for Wilbur Honors.
Nominated by Barbara Walker, Robby has been Director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Texarkana, TX for fifteen years, leaving his fingerprint on many of our community’s finest assets. He also provided important founding leadership to the bi-state Texarkana Hospitality Network. Robby is a dedicated civil servant, empowering his staff, while engaging and supporting individuals throughout our whole community. Known for going above and beyond in any role, Mr. Robertson positively impacts the quality of life in Texarkana by his consistency and devotion as a mentor and leader.
CONGRATULATIONS to Robby and THANK YOU for stepping up to lead the way in Texarkana USA – and beyond!
