PROFILE: Andrew Mathis Hill

Andrew Mathis Hill

Business Manager, Texarkana AR Schools

Born and raised in Texarkana, Andrew is a 1983 Suma Cum Laude and Top Ten graduate of AHS, a 1987 Magna Cum Laude and honor graduate of Jackson State University with a BS in Accounting, and a 2008 graduate of Colorado Tech University with an MS in Management-IT Management.

My mission for this wonderful community is to support the beautification efforts of downtown and other areas of Texarkana through volunteering my time, financial support, and planning knowledge whenever needed. Additionally, I definitely plan to volunteer for available non-profit boards, and to also assist any area businesses in any way I can to obtain the necessary resources to help them not only survive, but to also flourish. By investing all of our God-given skills and talents into our community and acting in the capacity as servant leaders, I believe we will reap the benefits of restoring our community to the level of being the great industrial, arts and cultural center that Texarkana has always been destined to be.
