Edward Johnson is a student at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa pursuing dual bachelor’s degrees in global studies and social justice with minors in Hebrew, non-profit business, and humanities. He has also served as an infantry soldier in the Oklahoma National Guard since December 2000 and is completing Officer Candidate School among the top of Oklahoma’s 61st class. He has served in combat deployments to Egypt, Iraq, and Afghanistan and deployed again to Afghanistan as a private contractor. He has been awarded the Bronze Star and the Expert Infantryman Badge, among other awards. He formerly served as a security officer at the Oklahoma Capitol Complex and then as a state trooper on the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. He was awarded the top cadet of his academy, the first black cadet to receive the award in Oklahoma. He lives in his hometown: Tulsa, Oklahoma.
