President's Welcome Message



Robbin Bass
2018-2019 JLT President

In 2018-2019, the Junior League of Texarkana will continue our journey of service to this community and those we serve.  Everything you see and know about our organization is due to the hard work of hundreds of empowered women who repeatedly show up and fearlessly say YES to community investment and leadership development.  Our commitment to voluntarism and improving the community is our legacy to Texarkana.  As an organization of over 500 women, we contribute our time, talent, and resources to impacting our community.  The impact of the JLT on our community is realized through many of our past projects as well as those that are still thriving today, including Shoes for the Soul/Clothes for the Cause. Teacher Take Wing and Spring Into Reading. This year we are proud to adopt to new programs, Packs for a Purpose and Open Hearts Food Pantry.

As the League year moves on, we continue to be a year of growth and improvement for our membership as we continue to help support members in their respective lanes of League service.  JLT will continue to improve our community through the effective action and leadership of its trained volunteers while continuing the execution of its mission.   

The year ahead is full of exciting endeavors to make every league member’s participation be one they will not forget. With the energy and heart of our membership, we will continue to be a powerhouse of women making a sustainable and lasting impact.  I am deeply humbled to serve as the President of the Junior League of Texarkana and to work with and for amazing, intelligent, courageous and enthusiastic women unafraid of the hard work and who recognize the power of WOMEN SAYING YES! 

In Service, I am
