“I want to come to UHV to be part of the FIRST 200,” said the senior from Madison High School in Houston. “I’ll be starting something new.”

Edwards plans to major in business at UHV and eventually would like to be a lawyer in the entertainment industry.

At his high school, he has been involved with numerous clubs, including the Future Farmers of America, the Future Business Leaders of America, Student Council, the Library Club and the Fashion Club. He hopes to join some new clubs when he becomes a UHV student.

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region, offers courses leading to more than 65 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and concentrations in the schools of Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, Education & Human Development, and Nursing. UHV provides face-to-face classes at its Victoria campus as well as teaching sites in Fort Bend and Harris counties, and online classes that students can take from anywhere. Since its founding in 1973, UHV has provided students with a quality university education from excellent faculty at an affordable price.
