What have you learned most about making a difference in Texarkana (or about your opportunity for community leadership) from being a part of Leadership Texarkana?
I discovered through Leadership Texarkana that there are countless people working every day to improve the quality of life in Texarkana, and that if I want to see change I must be willing to make it happen.

What does leadership mean to you?
Leadership is influencing and empowering others to reach goals, whether personal or organizational.  Leaders expect more from themselves than from others.

For what community organization or issue or opportunity do you have a passion and invest your time, talent or money?
Through my career in education I have numerous opportunities to reach out to children and families.  Education is far from an 8-5 job, and the connections made profoundly enrich my life.  I hope they have made a positive difference in theirs.

If you had one wish and could make a difference of significance in Texarkana (your small corner) what would you do with that one wish and why?
I wish I could break the cycle of generational poverty to enhance the quality of life for future generations.
