Simone Edwards

5th District

When Simone Edwards was young, her mother recognized both academic and musical talent in her that she developed over the years. In high school, she is a representative for Hamilton County school board, vice president of her class, president of Tri-M Music Honor Society, meeting coordinator for National Honor Society, and a member in Youth NAACP. In conjunction with that, she continues to perform in various groups throughout Chattanooga. Using Malcolm X's quote, "without education, you're not going anywhere in this world" as motivation, she continues to strive through high school and hopes to become a senator when she graduates from college.
