History

Chris and Erin Edwards were two highly charismatic leaders passionate about sports and broadcast journalism. Their commitment to inclusiveness, both in the workplace and in their personal endeavors, led them to cultivate diverse environments throughout every facet of their lives.

The untimely loss of Chris and Erin Edwards in 2019 left a void in their respective industries. They undoubtedly would have left an impact on their field. We at EVECE seek to continue their missions and improve not only their chosen industries but society as a whole.

In honor and memory of these outstanding members of society, EVECE was founded. The goal and mission of the organization is to instill the strengths and valued qualities of Chris and Erin to members of the journalism industry. Specifically, it’s the goal of the EVECE team to develop leaders in the field of communications and entertainment in order to advance the industry that the family valued so deeply.
