Edwards Leaves SHOW; Joins TWHNC



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – SHOW Designated Qualified Person (DQP) Coordinator Tony Edwards has resigned his position and will take a voluntary leave of absence until early March upon which time he will join the staff of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration (TWHNC).  Edwards will assume the responsibilities of coordinating and booking events for TWHNC facilities, including Calsonic Arena as well as being involved in TWHNC security.  Current TWHNC Head of Security David Nash will retire April 1, 2012.

“We are very appreciative of the time, effort and energy Tony gave to the SHOW HIO.  He was instrumental in the training programs for DQPs and was applauded for those efforts by many including the USDA,” said TWHNC CEO Dr. Doyle Meadows.

Edwards will not be replaced by SHOW and his duties will be assumed by SHOW President Dr. Steve Mullins.  “I will always be grateful to Tony for all of his hard work and dedication to the SHOW HIO and its inspection process,” said Mullins.

Edwards became DQP Coordinator for SHOW immediately following the 2009 Celebration and has served in that role since that time.
