President’s Message

Robbin Bass

2018 – 19 President

In 2018 – 19 Junior League of Texarkana continues 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 impact our community. The impact of JLT on our community is realized through many of our past projects as well as those still thriving today such as Shoes for the Soul and Clothes for a Cause, Spring Into Reading, and Teacher Take Wing. This year, we are proud to adopt two, new programs: Open Hearts Food Pantry and Packs for a Purpose.

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 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 president of JLT 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
