I've had the pleasure to work with her many times throughout the years when she was Executive Director of the Texarkana Chapter of the Red Cross. She was always a welcomed guest on our radio stations as she tirelessly helped us get the word out about important information and events pertaining to Texarkana and surrounding areas. That included helping local families after a house fire to blood drives due to natural disasters and helping displaced evacuees arriving in Texarkana from hurricanes Katrina and Rita and more.

Congratulations Nedra!! You deserve this special Lifetime Razorback honor!
