Texarkana USA is a community of excellence, with a creative heritage that is second to none. Texarkana’s creative spirit of ingenuity and excellence has been the community’s authentic hallmark throughout its 150-year history.
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, what Texarkana offers is one of a kind and second to none.
In today’s world, every community’s future will be directly linked to its creative resources and its pursuit of excellence. Our future is being built today, by Texarkanians who are creative, turned-on, tuned-in and connected.
We proudly build on the iconic legacies of Texarkana-natives from Scott Joplin to Ross Perot and celebrate the potential we each have to leave a mark on the world through our individual and collective creative endeavors. We understand–and celebrate–who we are and can be: a community of excellence. Texarkana USA: One of a Kind and Second to None
…a thriving center for education, business and culture which attracts and serves us all.
It is no accident that our community enjoys the riches that it does.
We work for it.
Over the past five decades, the pictures painted by the community’s citizens in repeated visioning exercises have consistently reflected what we value: Community Excellence, Pride, Progress, and–always–Working Together.
In particular, citizens’ ideals have focused on:
• Commitment to Working Smart & Excellence
• Superior Educational Opportunities
• Cultural Riches
• Community Pride
• Economic, Social and Personal Well-being
Our community has no claims to perfection–(nor do any communities we’d guess)–but having at least two of most everything, and often more, yields competitive dynamics that have created abundant first-class outcomes, with many authentically second to none.
