Ed James ('83) recently helped a local Edmond ministry, Beautiful Restoration, with their Christmas event "Beautiful Lights of Restoration," which was held November 28-30, 2021. The three nights were filled with holiday lights, music and activities, and guests were treated to smores, hot dogs and Christmas carols.
James is an event designer and has created backdrops for contemporary Christian recording artists Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith. He has worked as an event director for other artists such as George Strait and Winona Judd, and has even worked special events at the White House. James was recently asked to work with Riversport Rapids & Adventures in OKC, and he will also be working on projects for the 2022 Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, California.

Way to go, Ed! We are proud of you and your hard work, as well as your witness to the Edmond community and beyond through your work.
