50th Anniversary

Good things are said to come in threes and that’s certainly true this year when A&M-Texarkana celebrates three anniversaries at once! How wonderful to look back and celebrate fifty years of higher education for this community, twenty-five years of membership in the nation’s best university system, and ten years of breaking new ground—both literally and metaphorically—on our beautiful new campus. Yet as gratifying as it is to celebrate our history, it’s also inspiring to look to the future. We see the enormous potential in our current students—tomorrow’s leaders in our region and beyond. We are preparing for future classes of students with programs inside and outside the classroom that equip them for their future roles in the workplace and society.

As your support was essential to our first fifty years, your contributions will make all the difference going forward. Our students are this region’s future, but to be successful, most need financial help. The scholarships your contributions provide will not only support deserving students, but also help ensure a bright tomorrow for this wonderful community.

Texas A&M-Texarkana has achieved so much over the last half century. As we pause to look back, the only thing better than realizing how far we’ve come is to think about how much further we can go. My deepest thanks to you for all you’ve done, and I know will continue to do, to make our shared vision of the future a reality.

Dr. Emily Cutrer
President, Texas A&M University-Texarkana
