(POST ELECTION NEWS pending.)
A White History Month is proposed by candidate Edward E. Stephens V. Mr. Stephens is a resident of unincorporated Missouri (Platte County). He has lived in or around the Kansas City Metro area all 25 years of his life. Edward graduated from Park Hill High School in May of 2006 as a tri-letterman of academics, 4A state champion football, and 4A state champion wrestling. His outstanding academic ability earned him the A+ Scholarship to Metropolitan Community College in Kansas City, Missouri, where he began studying engineering. While studying, Edward was accepted into Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year institutions. He later became president of his college’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter and led that chapter to many distinct honors. In 2008, Edward was named International Distinguished Chapter President of the entire international organization. He graduated from Metropolitan Community College with honors, earning an A.S. in Engineering.
Edward’s high academic ability, coupled with his leadership skillset, earned him several scholarships to the Missouri University of Science & Technology (formerly University of Missouri-Rolla). In 2008, Edward duly enrolled at “Missouri S&T” and began studying electrical engineering, specializing in power systems.
“We celebrate, and have celebrated for many years, a history month in our school district that is dedicated specifically to the accomplishments and the standards of the black race,” Stephens, who is white, says. “Yet there is no month dedicated to the history and the advancement of the white race. That, to my mind, is abusive.”
Edward continued to excel academically and socially. He made the Chancellor’s List for exceptional performance several semesters. He joined the student branch of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and was elected vice president of the university chapter.
While studying electrical engineering at Missouri S&T, he became involved in Toastmasters International and learned the valuable communication skills required of a leader in today’s marketplace. His unique speaking style, energy, and passion earned him several speaking awards and local recognition as an experienced orator. He was also to become chapter president of his university’s Toastmasters club.
In addition to electrical engineering, Edward also studied Russian and Missouri S&T. In 2010, Edward traveled to Moscow, Russia, where he further pursued Russian studies. He studied the Russian language and culture in a summer-long educational program at Moscow University for the Humanities. Upon returning to America, Edward finished his academic life at Missouri S&T in 2010 earning a B.S. in electrical engineering and Russian minor and graduating magna cum laude.
As a Christian and Freemason, Edward is one of us. Through leadership and service he honors our community. In these difficult economic times, we can count on him to reduce taxes. His motto is: “Raise standards, not taxes.”
Having also grown up in a working class household, he is much closer than the current BOE to the economic realities we face as a community.
- I pledge to spend your tax money as I would spend my own, wisely and frugally.
- I pledge to veto any proposal to raise taxes.
- I pledge to vigorously oppose the introduction into our schools of lesson plans and reading materials created by extremist groups such as the ADL, SPLC, and NAACP.
Edward E. Stephens V
Stephens is critical of the school district’s lack of emphasis on European culture in the majority White school district.
“I think we need to also pay attention to the white culture and white accomplishments. The vast majority of the Park Hill School District is white … it only makes sense to honor those things as well,” said Stephens.
The American Freedom Party (formerly The American Third Position) supports Mr. Edward Stephen’s proposal for a “White History Month”. We recommend that all European Americans vote for this candidate who would represent the interests and concerns of White American school students. The school board position is a non-partisan position. Edward Stephens is an independent candidate.
