    Edwards’ Gift of Investing

    Molded by his mother, guided by a teacher, and inspired by a washerwoman, Jimmie Edwards took his opportunity for an education and, eventually, made it his mission to grant others that same gift.


    He was an adult and well into his career in 1995 when he heard the story of Oseola McCarty, an 87-year-old woman who never married nor bore children. McCarty spent a lifetime as “the help,” scrubbing floors and saving money, and that year, she donated $150,000 to the University of Southern Mississippi.
