Throughout the years, Barr has served in multiple capacities but most recently as Chairman of the Board of the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA), member of the Executive Committee of the Van Cliburn Foundation and board member of Medical City Fort Worth Hospital. He continues to be a positive driving force within our community and a valued supporter of Texas Wesleyan.

Hunter Enis, a major player in the oil and natural gas business and Fort Worth Business Hall of Fame recipient, graduated from Polytechnic High School and has remained loyal to his roots in East Fort Worth. Although he is a proud TCU alumnus, Enis values education and understands the good things that happen in a small classroom setting, and has become a strong advocate for Texas Wesleyan.

Together, Barr and Enis served as co-chairs for Texas Wesleyan’s President’s Advisory Task Force for Economic Revitalization. They both have agreed to co-chair the Texas Wesleyan President’s Advisory Board, a newly formed group of community leaders and alumni who will provide the University counsel on economic development, strategic planning and advancement.
