Thomas Edwards is a retired US Air Force Major. He is the commander of the Junior ROTC Squadron at Red River High. Recently he was crowned King.
For the 2018-2019 year, Thomas Edwards is King of the Krewe of Sobek XVI. The photos show the crown being placed upon his head at the beginning of his year-long reign.
Edwards was excited about the honor when The Journal caught up with him this week. Edwards said, “The Krewe of Sobek is much more than just an excuse to party and have a good time. We play, but we also pay.” He said the Krewe gives scholarships to high school students. They also provide bicycles to Boys and Girls Clubs.
Edwards is looking forward to presiding over the Krewe’s Ball next January 18th.
