Edward Turner works as an education organizer for the Texas Organizing Project in Dallas. Edward grew up in South Dallas and is a first generation college graduate. He earned a BBA in Finance from Texas Southern University and MBA in International Business from American InterContinental University. After moving back to Dallas in 2009, he was dismayed by how the once thriving area he grew up in had dwindled in population, which caused four schools to close. Knowing education was the key to success, he left his finance job, and became a resilient community organizer in the same community he was raised in.
