Grey H. Edwards

Grey H. Edwards, Jr. has served as a distinguished practitioner in nearly every facet of the U.S. Army adult education program, including in combat situations, during his more than 38 years of service for the troops. He risked his life as a military educator on a special three-member team in Baghdad, Iraq, conducting critical educational testing of combat troops, well before civilian educators were allowed in this combat zone. More recently, Edwards has focused his attention on the activation of the Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning, Georgia—one of six war-fighting centers being created with the reorganization of the U.S. Army directed by the Base Closure and Realignment Commission (BRAC). Throughout his years as a military educator, Edwards has been concerned with raising the profile of military educators within the civilian education community. From 2001 to 2006, he served as the president of the Commission of Military Education and Training, and in 2007, he was elected as the president of the American Association of Adult and Continuing Education (the only military educator ever to serve in that capacity) and planned the association’s Adult Education Conference in Norfolk, Virginia.     [ Click for More ]
