Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

And the Waxahachie Chamber has been paving the way for nearly a century to build local business and support entrepreneurs of Waxahachie.

If you haven’t joined the chamber community already, the chamber is still working for you. Behind the scenes or in the spotlight.

A rising tide lifts all boats – and the chamber exists to make sure the tide is always rising in Waxahachie.

On Tuesday of this week, the chamber staff and members volunteered to assist the North Texas Food Bank to serve hundreds of families in need.

On Thursday, Aug. 4, the chamber staff and members will convene at the Doves Nest Restaurant downtown Waxahachie at noon for their monthly Speed Lead Luncheon.

With a booming audience online and a thriving network of nearly 700 business leaders, the Waxahachie Chamber remains one of the most cutting-edge leaders of our town.

In an interview with Bryan Wooten, chairman of the board at Waxahachie Preparatory Academy – Bryan speaks of their experience as an unconventional educational model in Ellis County:

What is your favorite part about what you do?

“We love partnering with parents to provide students a Christ-centered education through rigorous academics, an active school culture and the cultivation of spiritual growth producing a life of faith in and obedience to Jesus.”

What do you love most about the Waxahachie Chamber?
