Amarillo Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Jason Harrison spoke about his Amarillo roots and leaving the city to attend college, but then choosing to come back to Amarillo to raise his family because of the school district.

“We, like many others, traveled back to Amarillo to raise our family, and a lot of that was because of the schools. The school system, the buildings, it’s just a good, safe school district,” Harrison said.

“When you think about these bonds, especially Prop A, it represents an investment in our students, community, and our future workforce, to give them every opportunity to have a safe learning environment and a good education,” he said.
