About Focus Magazine, Spring 2017

In this edition of Focus, we look at one of the largest highways in the US. While some may treat Interstate 35 as simply a road, we believe it is so much more. It is a workplace, a church and something that can divide and unite cities across Texas.

From a church dedicated to serving the cowboy community to delving into the lives of a well-worn trucker, we believe the businesses, people and storied past are the details that make Interstate 35 more than just a highway. We believe the stories that make a I-35 unique are worth being shared. Come with us as we take a Drive Down I-35!

A special thanks to Julie Freeman and our fantastic writers and photographers. We couldn’t have done this without you!
