House of Representative member Edward Hanes Jr. will be the keynote speaker at Quality Education Academy High School’s 2016 commencement ceremony, scheduled for 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 4.

Representative Hanes, a native of Winston-Salem, has dedicated his life to public service ensuring legislation is in place to provide assistance in several key areas that directly affect our community.

Beginning his career as an educator, Representative Hanes understands first-hand the impact education has on the lives of youth. In 2013, he ran for office and was elected in District 72. He serves on several committees including education, ethics, banking, finance, and homeland security. Mr. Hanes has quickly become a thriving force in the community, challenging the status quo and refusing to give anything less than the best for the community that elected him to represent them.

As QEA celebrates another year of 100% college acceptance from its graduating class, the administration, students, parents, and community members are excited about this year’s speaker. Representative Hanes has visited the school before and is in full support of the rigorous academic curriculum and high standards set for students.

Hanes received his BA degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, his Masters from Harvard University, and JD of Law degree from the University of North Carolina.
