Vashil Fernandez
Community Development Specialist and President of the Texarkana Homeless Coalition

Vashil stands above the rest in more ways than one. At almost seven feet tall, he is a former professional basketball player. Vashil played internationally in the Spanish League and in the National Basketball Association for the Miami Heat. Shortly after his professional basketball career, he and his family moved to Texarkana in 2019 to work for the city of Texarkana. He has quickly made an imprint on our city as the Community Development Specialist and President of the Texarkana Homeless Coalition.

Vashil helped lead in building several community gardens in the Rose Hill neighborhood. He was also instrumental in the educational campaign entitled “Responsible Compassion” to address the panhandling issue in the city. We are looking forward to seeing Vashil’s continued impact in the city of Texarkana.
