PROFILE: Dixon Boyles

Dixon Boyles

Dean of Business and Social Sciences, QEP Director, Texarkana College
LT Class of 2018 

Dixon's passion is education and he has worked most of my adult life to become more effective in making the world a smarter, wiser place.  Dixon says, "The value of a college degree has never been more important, and my mission is to increase the college graduation rate of area citizens and thereby to improve their personal wellness in terms of health, earnings, happiness and many other wellness factors and to help end the generational poverty which so many of our citizens have endured.

When asked what his wish would be to make a difference of significance, he said it would be "to restore the appreciation of the pursuit of knowledge for knowledge’s sake. The current demand that everything taught in schools be immediately applicable in the marketplace can blind us to beauty and prevent us from becoming enlightened citizens who are dedicated to building the best communities we can. We need to feed the human spirit if we are to conquer the challenges of the future."
