Legislative Experience- Senate Member- 2019 - present Hometown- Burleson Party- Democrat Senator Beverly Powell is a fourth generation Texan, a determined advocate for public education, and a successful real estate professional and small business owner. A graduate of Texas public schools and the daughter of a respected public school teacher, Beverly is committed to quality educational opportunities for all Texans. As a Senator and a former school board president, Beverly is a respected leader on education issues. During her first session, Beverly worked across party lines to pass historic school finance reform, increase teacher pay, and reform Texas' controversial standardized testing system. As a non-traditional student and working single mother, Beverly went back to college at 39, graduating from her parent's alma mater, Texas Wesleyan University, with a BS in Psychology and an MBA. Her commitment and belief in the power of higher education earned Beverly a position on the school's Board of Trustees. In the Senate, she works to promote higher education and career training. Beverly passed the Texas WORKS program to provide on-the-job training opportunities for students enrolled in Texas universities. The daughter of a highly decorated World War II veteran and the granddaughter of a Gold Star Family, Beverly's legislative priorities are influenced by her life experience. She led efforts to preserve the Operation Welcome Home Program for returning service members and authored legislation to streamline loan funds for military communities. Senator Powell and her husband Charlie are involved in civic organizations throughout Tarrant County and are active in their church. The Powells are parents to three sons and have seven grandchildren.
