PROFILE: Mary O'Farrell

"I have learned that each one of us must take responsibility for the well-being of every person in our community  We must include even those who are not just like us. Leadership is about one life influencing another. I agree with Margaret Mead who said, 'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.'"

Mary O'Farrell, life long resident of Texarkana, USA, charges any room in which she walks in with her non-stop energy.  Multiple organizations over the years have tapped that energy.  She is a sustaining member of the Junior League of Texarkana, Inc.  She was named Outstanding Sustainer of that same organization in 2014.  Mary made history by becoming the first female Rotarian in Texarkana when she joined Wilbur Smith Rotary Club (previously named Downtown Rotary Club).  She was later honored as a Paul Harris Fellow by Rotary International.  The list of organizations continues:  Texarkana Homeless Coalition, UCRC United Community Resource Council, TACOAD Texarkana Area Coalition Organization Active in Disaster, Hands On Texarkana Board, Leadership Texarkana Board Member and Texarkana Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.  She is an active lifetime member of First United Methodist Church and she retired from as an administrator from Texarkana Texas Independent School District in 2000.  Mary is the proud grand parent of six.
