Nominated by California State Senator Mark Wyland, Edwards-Tate was among an elite group of San Diego businesspersons to receive recognition and an award for her nomination.
Accordng to Edwards-Tate: “It was exciting attending this event, and humbling to be among an exclusive group of exceptional San Diegans. Though not an award recipient in the Privately-Held category, being the recipient of Senator Mark Wyland’s nomination was a true honor.”
The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to the most deserving, venerable Ken Blanchard of The Blanchard Companies.
“Meeting Dr. Blanchard face-to-face with the opportunity to speak with him was the highlight of the evening for me,” said Edwards-Tate. “Studying his leadership and management principles while in graduate school many years ago helped shape my leadership style today. He was on my bucket list of individuals I most wished to meet and was finally able to do so.”
