What Bert Has To Say About Waco Metro Area

The typically-Texas small city of Waco is an important commercial and transportation hub with an added college presence. The economic base consists of small to mid-sized manufacturers in a variety of industries and a strong agricultural presence with ranching, poultry, and cotton. Another principal employer, Baylor University, brings 15,000 students and some college-town amenities. However, educational attainment is unusually low for a college town.
