Today I had a wonderful time reading “The Lemonade War” to Maud Elementary students during their lunch. The students read with their parents at home, then have a guest read along with them during lunchtime. Many thanks to Principal Erica Fouche for inviting me to be a part of this engaging and enjoyable learning experience.

Texas A&M University-Texarkana is one step closer to a new building dedicated to academic and student services. In the 2015 legislative session I was able to secure funding for this project. It’s an honor to have celebrated this exciting opportunity for the university to serve student needs and to see this project come full circle. This new building reflects the growth TAMU - Texarkana is experiencing, with an expansion of the nursing program, business programs, classrooms, laboratories and student-support services.
