Dan Dipert CEO, Dipert Travel & Transportation Chairman of the Board Arlington Chamber of Commerce

n the coming year, one of my major responsibilities as Chairman of the Board is to work diligently with the business community and our partners to ensure that the Arlington Chamber of Commerce stays aggressive and proactive in areas such as economic development, business development and retention, community development, workforce development, and government relations. In addition to being Arlington’s primary catalyst for economic development, the Chamber has worked tirelessly to recruit and retain several major companies in the past year, representing 1,112 new and retained jobs and $121.6 million in capital investment. We are currently working with an additional 64 business development prospects; these projects represent the potential for approximately 9,826 jobs and $1.2 billion in capital investment. As part of the Chamber’s technology initiatives, Innovation Arlington is focused on developing the “commercialization infrastructureâ€? needed to position Arlington as a catalyst for technology-based startups. The Arlington Technology Incubator, Workforce Development Center, and Entrepreneurial Center continue to support small business ventures and remain a high priority. I started my travel business 35 years ago in a space less than 3,500 square feet with one business partner, so I know the challenges of operating a small business. The Chamber is dedicated to growing, nurturing, and mentoring the small businesses that are struggling and to ensuring they have the resources available to be productive and successful. Small businesses will continue to receive Chamber support, business opportunities, networking connections, information and training, procurement opportunities, and membership benefits shared by major companies. We’re very proud of the role the Chamber has played in developments that are occurring, such as Glorypark, a master-planned lifestyle community; the Lamar/Collins overlay district and its design standards; Arlington Highlands Shopping Center, a premier mixed-used development; the Cowboys Stadium; and downtown development projects. However, as we look beyond the “nowâ€? and into the future of our great city, the Chamber’s priority is to help build and shape this community 15 to 20 years down the road. As an example, the Arlington Redevelopment Corporation, the Chamber’s development affiliate, in partnership with Fannie Mae, HUD, and the City, will focus on assisting the private sector in the redevelopment of central Arlington and new developments to come! Team Arlington has been highly successful, and I am proud and honored to be a part of the creation and success of this partnership. Team Arlington, a Chamber-led coalition inclusive of the City of Arlington, UT Arlington, Tarrant County, Tarrant County College, Arlington ISD, and the Tarrant County Workforce Development Board, has secured over $500 million to date since its inception in 2002 and will continue its efforts in Austin and Washington representing the business community and our partners. The Chamber continues to support the partnerships and future Team Arlington initiatives, and together we will accomplish great things. As this year’s Chairman of the Board of Directors, I encourage you to be involved and active in the Arlington Chamber of Commerce ‌ you can and will make a difference.

n behalf of the Arlington C h a m b e r of Commerce, our members, Board of Directors, and staff, we are pleased to provide you with the 2008 Membership Directory and Community Profile. This publication serves both as an introduction Wes Jurey to our community and a guide to the many President & CEO attractions, amenities, Arlington Chamber of Commerce and business resources we have to offer. If you are searching for a location for your business and/or family, we believe Arlington is a place you will be proud to call “home.” As Arlington’s largest and most diverse business organization, the Chamber of Commerce focuses on three core competencies: 1) serving as a catalyst for Arlington’s economic growth through our economic development division, 2) serving as the public policy advocate for business through our government relations division, and 3) providing quality services, resources, and benefits to our members. Arlington is America’s 50th-largest city, conveniently located in the center of the fourth-largest metropolitan area in America, and boasts a population near 380,000. Within a 25-mile radius of Arlington is the second-largest technologytrained workforce in the United States. The Chamber is proactively engaged in the commercialization of research and technology-led economic development initiatives, creating jobs and capital investment through strategic, collaborative, public/private partnerships. The Chamber provides the highest quality of services and benefits to our members by continuously adding value to our membership. This directory is generously supported by our many member businesses, whose investments contribute to the efforts of the Chamber and to the future of Arlington. We encourage you to patronize the Chamber members listed in these pages and take advantage of their vast variety of goods and services.

elcome to Arlington, a city that is centrally located in one of the most rapidly growing regions of the country, North Texas. You will find many images of Arlington throughout the pages of this Membership Directory Community Profile. As we continue to grow, we plan to continue to be an exemplary environment to live, learn, work, and play. More than 370,000 people now call Arlington home, and an additional 6.5 Robert Cluck, MD million people visit our city each year. We take pride in keeping our economy Mayor vibrant and innovative while ensuring a City of Arlington safe environment for the entire family. To accomplish our vision of becoming a pre-eminent city, we have taken decisive steps to build and diversify our economy, ensure dependable transportation infrastructure and mobility, and provide excellent city services. Our focus on good fiscal stewardship has kept our tax rate low and in balance with our smart spending strategies, allowing those in our community to enjoy more of the attractions and amenities unique to Arlington. We are proud of the many positive changes that have occurred in Arlington recently, particularly the work to construct the new stadium for the Dallas Cowboys football team, scheduled for completion in 2009. This stadium will play host to Super Bowl XLV, the Cotton Bowl, and many other sporting and entertainment events. Additionally, we have seen the beginnings of an exciting mixed-use development in the area near the Cowboys stadium and the existing Rangers baseball stadium, as well as plans and funding for redesigning our interstate transportation system, improving travel through and into many areas of Arlington. The City Council has also focused resources on redeveloping downtown Arlington and is excited about the possibilities of revitalizing our inner core. Arlington has indeed become a “can do” city again! Visitors to Arlington appreciate our central and accessible location, temperate climate, excellent hotels and dining, great shopping, and family-friendly attractions. Residents value our beautiful neighborhoods, well-managed development, cultural diversity, and our excellent schools, parks, and libraries. As a visitor or a resident, I think all will agree that our greatest asset is our people. The good people of Arlington are friendly, progressive, cooperative, and involved in their community. With the support and commitment of so many community stakeholders, we will continue to thrive as a competitive urban center, without losing sight of our historical roots and keeping that small-town feel. We welcome you and your business to Arlington!

he Arlington Chamber of Commerce is the City’s primary economic development entity, working in partnership with both public and private sectors to identify trends and address economic challenges that will affect the future success of our community. Our vision is to be strategic in planning, proactive in our execution, member- and community-driven in our direction, regional in our thinking, working in partnership with both public and private sectors on local, regional, and national levels. Studies show that many businesses join a chamber of commerce because of the significant advocacy role that the chamber represents for them on national, state, and local levels. The Arlington Chamber of Commerce is aggressive and very proactive in advocating for public policy and capital investment for the economic growth of Arlington and its businesses. In order to create jobs and capital investment for “wealth generation,” the Chamber’s primary focus is on five targeted industry clusters: logistics and trade, advanced manufacturing, life sciences and health care, professional/business and information services, and hospitality/tourism. In addition to creating jobs, an important Chamber goal is to increase both property and sales tax revenues. The Chamber is the voice of business when advocating public policy changes that stimulate the growth of business, the creation and

retention of jobs and wealth, and economic opportunity for all citizens. The Chamber is a significant resource for businesses — especially small businesses that may not have access to the efficiencies and opportunities afforded by technology — providing greater access to customers, capital, information, and training through the new Center for Innovation at Arlington. Our focus is to be a leader in the application of technology, research, and funding to support Arlington businesses. We believe economic progress is best achieved by working in partnership with local organizations such as the City of Arlington, local businesses, and our excellent educational institutions, including the University of Texas at Arlington, Tarrant County College, and Arlington Independent School District. The Chamber is also proactive in developing our transportation infrastructure, ensuring Arlington is integrated into the region’s planning and development of quality roads and transportation systems. In this way, we enhance our ability to move people, products, and information in and around our community. The establishment of the Arlington Technology Incubator and the Center for Continuing Education and Workforce Development, the adoption of Triple Freeport tax exemption, and the founding of the Central Arlington Redevelopment Corporation are

Your Business Connection e c o n o m i c

A

rlington has it all: an excellent location, an educated population, and a welcoming environment for business relocations and expansions of all types. With more than 360,000 residents, Arlington is the third-largest city in North Texas. Strategically located in the center of the North Texas region, Arlington is less than 17 miles from Downtown Dallas, 10 miles from Downtown Fort Worth, and is just eight miles from DFW International Airport, the fifth-busiest airport in the world. From Arlington, an employer can tap the labor market of the entire Metroplex. Arlington is the entertainment capital of Texas, home of Six Flags Over Texas amusement park and Hurricane Harbor water park, the Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, and now the new $1 billion Dallas Cowboys Stadium Complex, set to open in 2009.

Financial Incentives New and expanding businesses that invest and create employment opportunities in

Arlington may be eligible for various types of financial incentives. Some are available throughout the city, while some are available through other mechanisms. Incentive policies are typically aligned with achieving the economic development goals of the organization offering incentives. The Arlington Chamber of Commerce can assist you in determining which incentives your business may be eligible to receive. For a detailed description of all available incentives, please visit our Web site at www.arlingtontx.com.

Tax Abatements The City of Arlington and Tarrant County may grant tax abatements to new or expanding businesses for up to 10 years. Abatements typically range from 25 to 90 percent of the applicable ad valorem tax liability for an investment corresponding to those taxing jurisdictions. Applications for tax abatements are considered on a case-bycase basis.

D e v e l o p m e n t

Triple Freeport In 2003 the Arlington Chamber of Commerce proudly announced the exemption of Freeport inventory from property taxes by the Arlington Independent School District. AISD joins the City and Tarrant County in exempting inventory that is or will be forwarded out of Texas within 175 days of the date it enters the state. This exemption has created significant cost savings for eligible companies.

Enterprise Zone Enterprise Zone incentives are available to companies that locate in one of the city’s two enterprise zones or in a qualifying Census Block Group and that meet certain hiring criteria. In addition to more aggressive municipal incentives, companies may also qualify for financial incentives from the state of Texas. Scheduled to open in 2009 and to host the Super Bowl in 2011, the new Dallas Cowboys stadium in Arlington will draw even more visitors to the city’s Entertainment District.

The Arlington Municipal Airport is a fullservice general aviation “reliever� airport owned and operated by the City of Arlington. Runway 16/34 is 6,080 feet by 100 feet, with medium-intensity lighting and a full, parallel taxiway. The airport encompasses 500 acres, on which several aviation businesses have been developed. The City owns and manages 96 T-hangars, a 10,000-square-foot maintenance hangar, and 140 tie-down spaces. Also on the site is a 7,000-square-foot terminal building housing the airport’s administrative offices. The airport has a brand-new control tower with an Instrument Landing System (ILS) about to be designed.

Transportation

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Arlington is only minutes away from Dallas/ Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). In 2006, DFW was the fifth-busiest airport in the world in total aircraft movements. Just over 60 million passengers and 835,000 tons of cargo passed through DFW in 2006. With its newly opened, state-of-the-art international terminal and Sky Link system, DFW offers superb access to the entire world.

s the primary catalyst for Arlington’s economic growth, the Chamber focuses on defining and implementing strategies that will have the greatest impact on Arlington’s economic prosperity. These initiatives, programs, and activities are managed by the Chamber’s Economic Development Division. Our planning process, supported by extensive analysis and research, is based on an industry cluster model. The alignment of our region’s infrastructure, public policy, workforce, capital resources, and technology capabilities in support of each cluster is crucial. Cluster groups work to strengthen these basic economic foundations in support of the industries critical to Arlington’s future. Our primary clusters are:

Hospitality & Tourism Tourism is big business in Arlington. The City is home to Six Flags Over Texas, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, and the Texas Rangers baseball club and will soon be home to the Dallas Cowboys NFL football club. These major venues are located within Arlington’s Entertainment District. Millions of visitors are drawn to Arlington every year. The existence of ancillary services such as hotels and restaurants strengthens Arlington’s attractiveness as the family entertainment mecca of North Texas.

Advanced Manufacturing Arlington is home to many companies using advanced manufacturing processes to produce a spectrum of products from luxury SUVs, to outdoor pet kennels, automated postal equipment, precise machine

t

cutting tools, and microchips. A capable and highly skilled workforce and reliable utility network make Arlington attractive to manufacturing companies. Testament of Arlington’s mature manufacturing industry is the General Motors assembly facility, which has been the city’s largest private employer for well over 50 years. The plant was Texas’ first auto assembly facility.

Health Care/Life Sciences Arlington’s well-educated workforce and quality of life are also attractive to health care and life sciences companies. Many of Arlington’s health care providers have unique capabilities. Many were pioneers in state-of-the-art medical techniques. Arlington’s education resources are particularly aligned to support this industry. The University of Texas at Arlington School of Nursing is home to a virtual hospital — one of the first in the nation — and offers degrees in nursing, from bachelor’s to doctoral level. Tarrant County College also offers an associate degree in nursing.

Logistics & Trade Because of its strategic location in the middle of one of the country’s largest metropolitan areas, with access to multi-modal services via air, rail and highway, Arlington has attracted many companies engaged in logistics and trade. Products stored in Arlington not only enter the local market, but can also be easily shipped worldwide. Auto parts, food stuffs, furniture, hardware, household goods, and office supplies are just a few examples of the types of goods transported in and out of Arlington every day. UT Arlington has taken advantage of the industry and developed a research niche in RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Technology). Local logistics and distribution firms have taken advantage of the new technology. The Texas Rangers are among the myriad of attractions that draw over 6 million visitors to Arlington each year.

GM’s Arlington assembly plant has been manufacturing vehicles in Texas for 54 years and is a prime example of a high-tech automotive manufacturer. With 2,700 employees, the facility builds the Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, in addition to the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. 22

Hospitality and tourism (left) and health care/life sciences (right) are two of the six primary industry clusters fueling Arlington’s rapid growth.

Professional, Business, & Information Services Businesses in the professional, business, and information services cluster are unique, entrepreneur-oriented companies that are critical to Arlington’s growth. Arlington’s central location to the Metroplex allows these companies to access customers through the entire region and draw upon a larger workforce market.

Partnerships The Arlington Chamber of Commerce realizes that the city’s economic prosperity is contingent on strategic partnerships sharing a common vision to make the city a great place for all. The Chamber forges these partnerships with the City of Arlington, Tarrant County, UT Arlington, Tarrant County College, Arlington ISD, the Tarrant County Workforce Board, the Convention and Visitors Bureau, our ethnic chambers, community-based organizations, and our neighboring communities. All organizations play a vital role in the future success of Arlington.

The Arlington Chamber of Commerce works continually to ensure that the region’s infrastructure, education, and policy are aligned to support the region’s crucial industry clusters.

In March 2002, UT Arlington and the Arlington Chamber Foundation established the Arlington Technology Incubator (ATI).

I

nnovation Arlington is a project of the Arlington Chamber Foundation, focused on the commercialization of technologybased research at the University of Texas at Arlington. It represents a collaborative public/ private sector partnership among the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, the University of Texas at Arlington (UT Arlington), and the City of Arlington. The Initiative is pursuing the development of integrated clusters in health sciences, advanced materials, and manufacturing that effectively support technology-led economic development. North Central Texas, with a population of 5.5 million, boasts the largest technologytrained workforce in the United States, outside Silicon Valley. Historically, research and technology have been the primary drivers of economic growth. Many technology-led economies are the result of effective partnerships between universities and the private sector, focused on technology transfer from the lab to the marketplace.

Arlington Technology Incubator In March 2002, UT Arlington and the Arlington Chamber Foundation established the Arlington Technology Incubator (ATI) to 24

link the university to the private sector. The Technology Incubator was funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce. It also houses the UT Arlington Office of Research’s Technology Transfer Office, Grant and Contract Division, and Research Compliance Division, enabling the Incubator to effectively facilitate the interaction necessary to introduce leading-edge university research into the private sector. In just three years, the Incubator has graduated three companies and has a present occupancy of 12 companies in fields such as surface analysis, computer hardware, software development, and data protection systems. The Incubator also offers continuing education and business services. Several client companies have received significant venture funding as well as federal SBIR grant monies.

University Research Initiatives In November 2002, the university established the Institute for Nanoscale Science and Engineering Research and Teaching, which brought together six UT Arlington research facilities in the Colleges of Science and Engineering to provide a coordinated approach for effective tech transfer, including the NanoFab

Research and Teaching facility (the only one of its kind in Texas, and among the first nationally), the Automation and Robotics Research Institute, the Materials Science and Engineering Laboratories, the Chemistry Research Building, the departmental research laboratories, and the Future Center for Nanostructured Materials. The second UT Arlington strategic development is a companion institute, the Bioscience and Bioengineering Center, which will interface biotechnology, informatics, nanoscience, and genomics R&D through cooperative research, joint grant request applications, and directed technology transfer.

World’s Best Technologies Showcase Arlington is hosting the World’s Best Technologies Showcase for the fifth year in March 2008, a national event produced in cooperation with the Federal Lab Consortium for Technology Transfer and the National Association of Seed and Venture Funds. The purpose is to develop relationships with sources of early-stage venture capital and to position the region as an emerging player in the commercialization of technology research. www.arlingtontx.com

Innovation Arlington Innovation Arlington is focused on implementing and aligning all of these projects and resources to foster the development of a technology-led economy and to stimulate the emer emergence of entrepreneurial activity, which will in turn foster the creation of “high-tech� jobs. Ultimately, the Initiative will enhance regional competitiveness, support long-term development of regional economics, link universities and industry in the transfer and commercialization of technology, and support technology-led economic development.

Center for Entrepreneurial Development Entrepreneurs will soon have access to business assistance services — including consulting, funding and financing, training, and more — all in one location through the Center for Entrepreneurial Development. The Center will also administer a mentoring network comprised of local and regional companies that have agreed to provide business and technical assistance to clients of both the Arlington Technology Incubator and the Center for Entrepreneurial Development. In 2008, Arlington is hosting the World’s Best Technologies Showcase, an event that helps advertise the region as a global player in technology research, development, and marketing.

The Center for Continuing Education and Work Force Development houses the Arlington Workforce Center, which provides staff-assisted services and funded programs to help businesses find qualified employees.

Q

uality workforce development provides the infrastructure to meet the business community’s workforce issues. The Chamber has created the Education and Workforce Development Council to “build a quality employer workforce by linking together resources that meet workforce acquisition, development and retention requirements.” The key initiatives of the Education and Workforce Development Council impact our workforce locally, regionally, and nationally.

Workforce Development

The Arlington Chamber has several workforce development initiatives, including:

Champion Education Champion Education is a partnership of the Chamber, Arlington Independent School District (AISD), and community allies to fully communicate AISD’s services and accomplishments to our community. This committee serves as a conduit of information from AISD to our community and from our community to AISD, helping them to respond directly to the needs of our community.

Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County develops solutions for small, medium, and large businesses. Its mission is to “ensure the economic vitality of our community by building and maintaining a quality workforce development system.” Workforce Solutions’ services include customized training and professional outplacement services, all designed to meet workforce needs both now and in the future. Online job searches were recently made easier for Texans through the state’s new comprehensive job search resource: www.workintexas.com. Centers also provide staff-assisted services and funded programs to help assist in the transition from job seeker to employee. Collaboration between the Chamber, local colleges and universities, AISD, and Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County keeps educators and businesses working together for the betterment of all through training and retraining programs.

Workforce Partners Forum The Champion Education Committee provides this meeting once a month to offer the Chamber membership the opportunity to interact with local candidate providers to discuss current and future workforce needs. Training, recruiting, and retention are top topics for discussion. In addition, this meeting serves as a portal of labor market information that Chamber members may request in order to assist them in their business decisions for expansion and development.

Job Fairs The Chamber’s Education and Workforce Development Council ensures that Arlington employers are aware of all job fair opportunities. Additionally, workers displaced because of downsizing or closure are put in contact with the Tarrant County Rapid Response Team, 2008 Membership Directory & Community Profile

27

which coordinates events to place these workwork ers in new positions.

HR Roundtable The Chamber sponsors quarterly HR Roundtables where HR persons are invited to gather for lunch to discuss current topics of interest and concern relating to HR issues. These Roundtables are held in different local business locations to give the HR community the opportunity to see and hear different ideas and best practices in order to make their business HR functions run in a more profitable and effective manner.

State of the District Luncheon In the fall of 2008 the Chamber will host the second annual State of the District luncheon, which is designed to give the community the

28

2008 Arlington Chamber of Commerce

opportunity to hear directly from the school district about what is happening in their district. It also serves as a forum for the district to hear from the community about their concerns and gives the superintendent the opportunity to directly speak to the community.

Regional Partnerships Local Colleges

The Education and Workforce Development Council works closely with the University of Texas at Arlington and Tarrant County College SE Campus by serving on advisory committees and engaging in collaborative efforts to aid employers with training needs for their existing or emerging workforce.

• Youth Opportunity Center • Tarrant County College District • Arlington Chamber of Commerce Workforce Development Department • Fort Worth Independent School District • Goodwill Industries • The Women’s Center • Veterans Office This center will be a model for the nation on how an employer-driven workforce system can operate. For more information on any of the Quality Workforce Initiatives, please contact Karen Nolen-Rucker at 817-804-4331 or by e-mail at knolenrucker@arlingtontx.com.

Regional Workforce Development Summit

Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Grant

The Chamber is working in partnership with the Fort Worth and Dallas chambers of commerce and the three local workforce development boards to conduct an annual workforce development summit. Employers, educators, and workforce development professionals exchange ideas and information that will help each group meet the challenge of developing a quality workforce in our region. Target industry clusters have been formed to identify critical workforce needs in each industry. The clusters in development now are aerospace, health care, logistics, and semiconductor. Others will develop as interest and champions are found.

In the spring of 2007, the Chamber secured a $1 million grant for the Texas Workforce Commission for Advance Technology and Manufacturing. Partnering with Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County, the University of Texas at Arlington, Tarrant County College Southeast Campus, Arlington Independent School District, and the National Association of Manufacturers, the Chamber is currently developing regional plans for the development of job training for and recruitment of additional businesses active in advanced technology and manufacturing. For further information, please call 817-804-4331.

National Initiatives

Ways to Work Program

At the national level, the Chamber has secured recognition of the new Center for Continuing Education and Workforce Development as a participant in the Workforce Innovation Networks Project (WINs). Launched in 1997, WINs is a partnership of the Department of Labor, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Jobs for the Future, and the National Association of Manufacturers Center for Workforce Success. These partnerships improve the ability of a network of local and state employer associations and employer-led organizations to be effective workforce intermediaries. The Center for Continuing Education and Workforce Development is located on the University of Texas at Arlington campus and hosts the following partners: • Texas Workforce Commission • Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County (local workforce development board) • University of Texas at Arlington’s Continuing Education Department • UTA’s Human Resources’ Employment Office

The Arlington Chamber is the first chamber of commerce in the United States to replicate the Ways to Work program. This program offers small, short-term, lowinterest auto purchase and repair loans to working families with challenging credit histories. Ways to Work serves as an alternative source of funding for individuals with a demonstrated commitment to achieving self-sufficiency. The program is operated in conjunction with the McKnight Foundation and utilizes Department of Transportation funds to insure loans that have been made available to Tarrant County residents who meet the eligibility criteria. Referrals to the loan program are made through Chamber member organizations, and services for the recipients include a required eight-hour Financial Literacy seminar. For further information, contact the office of Workforce Development at 817-804-4331.

rlington’s rich and colorful history can be traced back to when Native Americans were the first inhabitants. During late Colonial times, Caddo tribe members were the primary residents, with as many as 25,000 living in the area now known as West Arlington. Maj. Jonathan Bird started construction of Bird’s Fort in 1841, beginning Anglo settlement efforts. Another nearby settlement included Johnson Station, a stage stop and trading post. Sam Houston declared that the area was to serve as a dividing line between settlers and the Native American tribes. The Republic of Texas signed its first peace treaty here in 1843, with nine tribal representatives present. In 1875, the Texas and Pacific Railroad attempted to build a new line west from Dallas to Fort Worth; Johnson Station was to be the stop in between. However, since the owner of the targeted land didn’t want a train going through his property, a site three miles north was chosen. Eventually, the new station was called Arlington, in honor of Gen. Robert E. Lee’s home in Virginia. On July 19, 1876, the first train roared through the new community, and on April 19, 1884, Arlington became a city.

2008 Arlington Chamber of Commerce

What started as a long-distance acquaintance between two individuals grew to a community’s outreach in a time of need and then into a strong and valued friendship between Arlington and Bad Konigshofen, Germany.

A

friendship was struck between residents of Arlington and of Bad Konigshofen, of northern Bavaria (Germany), just a few years after World War II. Bad Konigshofen (population about 7,000) is just west of the former border between East and West Germany, and immediately after the war, it was overwhelmed with new residents fleeing East Germany. Two pen pals, one from Germany, the other from Texas, began the relationship in 1950. By 1951, Arlington citizens were helping to meet the small Bavarian town’s huge need for food and clothing, sending four separate shipments to the tiny town. On November 29 of that year, Arlington Mayor Tom Vandergriff wrote to City Manager Kurt ZĂźhlke of Bad Konigshofen that “we already have several thousand pounds of clothing, bedding, canned goods, thread, needles, etc. ‌â€? and that “ ‌ over 100 people are actively working on our committees.â€? In gratitude for the many gifts sent by Arlington, the German town named its new city park Arlington Park. In addition to other gifts and traditions, statues recognizing their sister city now adorn each community’s landscape. An exchange program, serving both youth and adults, has existed for more than 50 years. The grateful residents of Bad Konigshofen recently gave new German dictionaries to Arlington high school students who are studying German. Both cities mutually celebrated the 50th anniversary of their friendship in 2001. www.arlingtontx.com

Hospitality and retail couldn’t ask for a better location. Justly known as the “entertainment capital of Texas,” Arlington draws more than 6 million visitors each year to such attractions as Six Flags Over Texas, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, Johnnie High’s Country Music Revue, and, of course, Texas Rangers baseball. In 2009 Arlington will become the home of the Dallas Cowboys’ new 90,000-seat, domed and airconditioned stadium.

About one-quarter of Arlington’s population is comprised of school-age children, and according to the 2000 Census, Arlington was rated among the best-educated cities in Texas. Nearly 80 percent of Arlington residents over the age of 25 have high school diplomas, and 30 percent of that same population has obtained a college degree. Residents of Arlington benefit from a wide array of educational opportunities, including the Arlington Independent School District, which consists of 52 elementary schools, 13 junior high schools, and nine senior high schools; the Southeast Campus of Tarrant County College; the University of Texas at Arlington; and over 20 private parochial schools.

Arlington ISD Currently more than 62,000 students are enrolled in the AISD, making it the ninthlargest school district in Texas. The district employs 8,000 administrators, teachers, and support staff, making it the city’s largest employer and the third-largest employer in Tarrant County. Arlington schools prepare students for future employment and higher education through challenging academic programs and extracurricular activities. Eighty percent of students are on an advanced education track, with about 12 percent of those students enrolled in honors courses. In addition to the honors curriculum, the district has an acclaimed special education program, focusing on academic success and development of life skills. AISD oversees 52 elementary schools, 13 junior highs, nine high schools, pre-kinder pre-kindergarten campuses, and three alternative schools. Arlington boasts one of the lowest tax rates among large districts in Texas, with a current rate of $1.775 per $100 of assessed value.

Evidence of this intensive interaction is found in the many accomplishments of AISD students. AISD’s class of 2005 had 17 National Merit Scholars, National Achievement Scholars, and National Association of Hispanic Scholars. This same group earned more than $13.6 million in grants and scholarships. Arlington has one of the highest numbers of graduating Scholars (students who complete the TEA Recommended Plan with a minimum 2.0 GPA) in Texas. Seventy-seven percent of the class of 2004 graduated in the Arlington Scholar program. Additionally, the dropout rate is just 0.9 percent. The Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills tests also illustrate that Arlington students do well, with approximately 80 percent of all students

passing reading, writing, and mathematics at state-mandated levels. The fine arts program was recently recognized as one of the top programs in the nation.

In math and language arts, students can progress as they master skills, content, and concepts, a system that is available in all grades, K–12. At the secondary level, additional opportunities for flexible pacing are available in science, math, foreign language, computer science, and the humanities through the district’s honors and advanced placement classes, as well as through concurrent enrollment in area colleges or universities.

Recently, TCC was approved to offer classes toward a new Associate of Arts in Teaching degree, designed both to ease the transition for students transferring to a four-year baccalaureate degree and to help alleviate the state’s teacher shortage. The streamlined program will assist students who transfer to Texas four-year colleges/universities, since these institutions will accept the associate degree as a single block of credits, thus avoiding loss of credit courses. These students are also given early opportunities to spend time in actual classrooms. TCC students have opportunities to study and learn in many different venues, including day, evening, weekend, short-term, Internet, distance-learning, and instructional television courses. A premier source of pride for TCC is the Cornerstone Program, a challenging, humanities-based honors curriculum for advanced students working toward bachelor’s degrees. The program leads to an Associate in Arts degree through four Cornerstone courses in history, fine arts, philosophy, and sociology, all of which emphasize critical thinking skills. Last fall, TCC opened its doors to a record credit enrollment of 34,854 students. Enrollment records have become the norm at TCC. Since 1999, fall credit enrollment has jumped more than 33 percent — almost 10,000 students. TCC’s academic excellence and tuition that’s lower than at neighboring universities keep enrollment high. In the fall of 2006, there were 261 students in the Senior Education Program in classes of a variety of interests and topics on all four TCC campuses. On the other end of the age spectrum, 1,200 youngsters participated in TCC’s popular three-week summer enrichment program, College for Kids. College for Kids is committed to academic TCC’s College For Kids offers summer enrichment programs for high-achievers starting in third grade.
