Arts & Humanities Council

of

East Texas



“Together we can do the extraordinary” is the motto of the Arts and Humanities Council of East Texas (AHCET), which is recognized as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit. Our mission is focused on serving economically disadvantaged youth and fostering cultural diversity by way of the arts. Founder and Executive Director, Debbie Kirkland-Waffer, built the organization on compassion--realizing that our youth are our future. She expounds repeatedly that the arts are proven to increase a child’s academic outlook, as well as, their psychological well-being.


AHCET strives to provide positive experiences with after school and out of school projects. AHCET's Board members are visionaries--armed and ready to strategically lead the mission and vision of this organization to fruition!
