Tricia Edwards, performing arts organization founder and Evanston resident, received the 2014 Unsung Heroine Award from the Cook County Commission on Women’s Issues. Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle presented the awards.

Ms. Edwards, representing Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin’s 13th District, was honored with 17 other women – one from each of the 17 county districts and one from Cook County as a whole – during Women’s History Month.

Unsung Heroine honorees were selected based on their contributions to their communities, families and professional endeavors that are vital, but seldom recognized. They are drawn from the community they serve.

Ms. Edwards was recognized for her nearly two decades of work providing performing arts opportunities for at-risk youth and people of all ages. She founded T.E. & Company Inc. in 1981 as a non-profit Children’s Theater Performing Arts organization. Her programs serve inner-and outer-city students and help them succeed academically by giving them the ability to choose something positive. Her mission has been to motivate, help and challenge children and develop skills that will help them in the future.

Ms. Edwards has written, directed and produced more than 5,000 plays and shows that contain messages about positive attitude and goal motivation. She has produced and created over 5,000 episodes for Evanston Community Television (ECTV) and is very active with youth programs at Faith Temple Church of God In Christ.
