“Wichita Falls will create a pedigree of students, without regard to race, ethnicity or gender, who are superb – excited, confident and ready for college. These kids will come back and be leaders in their community.”

TAME recently recognized Ed for his dedication and decades of commitment to the students of Wichita Falls.
