Working Together
for Community Excellence

The Texarkana community has always cared about excellence, but too often sacrifices that outcome by not coordinating efforts for moving ahead. LIFT challenges leaders throughout our community to WORK TOGETHER to benefit our businesses and families, our institutions and governing bodies, and all throughout our region.
