A&M-Texarkana celebrated the naming of the Tri-State Iron & Metal Atrium Dec. 7. Tri-State team members on hand for the ceremony were Levi Conaway, Rick McCloskey, Jess Glick, Adam Glick, Barbara Glick, Howard Glick, Haley Glick, Marvin Fisk, Ben Glick, Amy Ward, Jason Scott, Brian Hudson and Patrick Rountree.

Texas A&M University-Texarkana celebrated Dec. 7 the naming of the Tri-State Iron & Metal Atrium in the University Center on the A&M-Texarkana campus.

A&M-Texarkana President Dr. Emily Cutrer along with Tri-State President Howard and Barbara Glick unveiled the name during a ceremony on campus.

“We are delighted to dedicate this atrium in honor and recognition of the outstanding contributions of the Glicks and the Tri-State Iron & Metal to the new Student Recreation Center here at Texas A&M University-Texarkana,” said Dr. Cutrer. “For 70 years, the Tri-State family has provided outstanding support to the Texarkana education community. Their investment in our students and our university has been instrumental to our growth and development, and the official naming of the Tri-State Iron & Metal Atrium is our opportunity to thank them publicly for their support.”

One of the nation’s top recycling facilities, Tri-State Iron & Metal is a third-generation family business committed to being the premier recycler in the four states region. Established in 1947, Tri-State Iron & Metal is still located in its original location in Texarkana, Arkansas.

“The Tri-State Iron & Metal family takes great pride in supporting our community,” said Mr. Glick. “Our team is dedicated to enhancing educational opportunities in the region and is excited to be a part of the growing future of A&M-Texarkana.”

A&M-Texarkana is also honored to have an endowed scholarship established by the Glicks in memory of the late Marshall Glick, who graduated from A&M-Texarkana with a degree in business administration.

“We are so very grateful for the Glick family’s continued generosity and dedication to build this endowed scholarship for the students of the university,” said Dr. Cutrer. “Their ongoing support continues to impact the lives of our students now and in the future.”
