Chet Edwards http://chetedwards.com Fri, 01 Jun 2012 20:44:26 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.5.1 Accomplishments http://chetedwards.com/2011/07/accomplishments/ http://chetedwards.com/2011/07/accomplishments/#comments Fri, 29 Jul 2011 16:27:07 +0000 admin http://chetedwards.com/?p=4352 In 28 years of public service, Chet Edwards has made a positive difference for Texas and our nation.  As a Texas State Senator from 1983 to 1990 and as a U.S. Representative from 1991 to 2010, he earned the reputation of a bipartisan leader and champion of America’s military troops, veterans and their families. As a private citizen, he continues that service as a Board Member of the Military Child Education Coalition and as a Member of the Army National Cemeteries Advisory Commission, which is helping develop a long-term plan for the future of Arlington National Cemetery.

Born in 1951 in Corpus Christi, Texas, Edwards is the son of a World War II naval aviator.  He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Economics from Texas A&M University in 1974. Upon graduation, he received the Earl Rudder Award, given to two outstanding seniors. He then worked three years as a congressional aide to Congressman Olin E. “Tiger” Teague before earning a MBA from the Harvard Business School in 1981.

In 1982, at the age of 30, Edwards was elected as the youngest Member of the Texas State Senate, where he served from 1983 to 1990. He was known as a champion for education, high technology economic development and veterans, and Texas seniors and was named “One of Ten Outstanding Legislators” by Texas Monthly.
