v32_TSU-PresidentsThe year was 1927 and inventions like the talking picture, the electric razor and the videophone had hit mainstream America. That same year on Sept. 14, funding for what would eventually become Texas Southern University was approved, tran-scending educational opportunities for blacks living in Houston.

To commemorate the 85th anniversary of the school’s founding, Texas Southern University has embarked on an ambitious journey to tell “OUR Story”. The OUR Story Project boldly places a historically accurate face upon the university by spotlighting the individuals who helped to transform moments into movements, and personal experiences into profound events that have impacted this city, state, country and world immeasurably. The Our Story Museum Exhibit will showcase these individuals and historical moments with an exciting display of artifacts, photos, documents and video and audio recordings.

v22_Midtown1(Houston,TX) Public service and commitment to serving one’s community is a notable characteristic which few people are able to maintain. Fortunately for the Houston community, “commitment” is not a new concept for one of Houston’s prominently well-known families, the Edwards Family. Having come from a lineage of family members who are pioneers and entrepreneurs in both the public service and corporate sectors, David L. Edwards has successfully carried on the Edwards legacy. He has remained committed while working as a business owner focusing on the financial services industry and continuing to “give back” to the community by initiating and being involved with several community outreach programs and organizations.
