The Goostree Symposium presents Senator Beverly Powell at 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 18 in the Nick and Lou Martin University Center, Paul and Judy Andrews Hall, Room C. The topic this year is Leaders and Legends: The Ladies who've Changed Texas Forever.
Faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of the University are invited to attend this free event.
A lifelong resident of North Texas and a determined advocate for public education, Powell has spent four decades as a successful real estate professional. Throughout her career, Beverly Powell has been instrumental in the development of successful commercial and residential projects across Tarrant and Johnson counties.
A graduate of Burleson public schools and the daughter of a Texas history teacher, Beverly developed a passion for education very early. A non-traditional student and single mother, she went back to college, graduating cum laude from Texas Wesleyan University, where she also earned an MBA. Beverly’s belief in the power of education and her passion for the Texas Wesleyan commitment to non-traditional students earned her a position on the school’s Board of Trustees, where she continues to serve today. Beverly served her community as a trustee for the Burleson Independent School District from 2007 to 2017. Her motivation to broaden the public education experience was the reason her colleagues elected her to two terms as president.
Beverly is proud to serve Senate District 10 in Tarrant County and will continue to fight for a vibrant economic environment and access to educational opportunities for all Texans.
