As a kid, Carl Edwards spent the summers with his grandfather in Texas, learning invaluable life skills from a genuine Amarillo cattleman. The ranch is where Edwards developed his business sense and discovered the worth of a hard day’s work, where, amongst the big skies and the low of the cattle, he came to appreciate his Chickasaw heritage.
Today, Edwards is a partner at Price Edwards & Company, a commercial real estate firm in Oklahoma City. Many dreams have come true in Oklahoma City and surrounding areas, he says, because of the Chickasaws and their pride in building up the local community.
Edwards also possesses that communal Chickasaw spirit. He serves as Chairman of the Presbyterian Health Foundation, a local foundation that owns and operates a $100 million+ bioscience research park at the OU Health Center. He’s also a member of the Board of Trustees of the Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust and a member of the Board of Trustees and Chairman of the Oklahoma Metropolitan Area Public Schools Trust (MAPS for Kids Trust).
