Mayor of Texarkana, Texas; Business Development at Bank of the Ozarks
I received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Texas A&M University - Texarkana in 1984. I have fond memories of the university, including meeting my wife, Jackie. She was a student, as well as a part-time employee, who worked in the Admissions Office. We have been married for 30 years.
My college degree has provided me with the education and skills to be employed over the years in the electric utility industry, local chamber of commerce, the university and most recently, banking. My degree has also enabled me to serve an active role in city government with the City of Texarkana, Texas. I became a council member in 2005 and currently serve as the Mayor.
