An organization of young community members striving to make a difference in the community is celebrating its first year in Texoma.
Young Professionals of Wichita Falls held its inaugural banquet on Monday evening.
In its first year, the organization has grown to over 100 members, and has hosted a variety of community service projects such as providing Christmas gifts to children in need during the holidays.
The organization's main mission is to help its members grow professionally, while inspiring the next generation of volunteers to get involved.
President-elect Teea Reed says concentrating on Texoma's teen will provide a better future for Wichita Falls.
"Young Professionals of Wichita Falls we feel like it's our responsibility to grow and mentor and just kind of develop the upcoming leaders, the ones that will be filling these corner offices one day," Reed says.
During its second year, YPWF looks forward to mentoring high school seniors, and being part of a new reading initiative as well.
