I have a BS in Nuclear Physics and an MBA. I worked for the Tennessee Valley Authority training nuclear plant operators at the Browns Ferry Nuclear Power Plant. I also served TVA in various management positions. I have spent the last four years abroad training operators for nuclear power plants in Korea and the United Arab Emirates.

Edward D. Jackson
Carriage Hill
Resident since 2013

As a resident of the Carriage Hill subdivision for nearly 3 years, I’d like to become more involved with the direction of the community. Originally from North Carolina, and having grown in the DC metropolitan area, I ultimately moved to Huntsville in 2009 from Virginia Beach. I moved the area after receiving my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Electrical Engineering from Norfolk State University. I’m currently a Software Engineer for the Army, working on Redstone Arsenal at AMRDEC’s Software Engineering Directorate. Just prior to receiving my Master’s degree, I served as the President for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) chapter at my University for 2 years. Additionally, I was recently elected to serve as the President of my 60-year-running family reunion.

As an EOA board member with a keen eye on emerging technologies, I plan on bringing that perspective to the table. I’m a small business owner, and try to always be in touch with the happenings of the greater Huntsville Area. I stay abreast of events in the city and their direct effects on our community. It would be an honor to serve.

Roberta Dorning
118 West Lake Circle
Steeplechase

Roberta is an adjunct professor of English at Calhoun Community College. She has been teaching there for 17 years. Before semi-retiring, she taught high school English and History. After living in Steeplechase for 13 years, she finally has the opportunity to be much more active in the community since her semi-retirement.  For the last two years she has served on the Community Affairs Committee. Her main focus has been new activities for the ‘adults’ within the community. Some of the new activities she has spearheaded are the Wine Socials, the International Potluck Supper, the Octoberfest and the Adult Costume Party. Also, with the help of the chairman and members of the Community Affairs Committee, we had the best “Splash Bash” (pool party) that we have had in years.
 Roberta feels there is a need for all members of the community to meet neighbors and use the clubhouse on a more regular basis. Her main focus is keeping the Edgewater Community a very desirable place to live, where everyone has the opportunity to take part in some type of social activity that helps bring this beautiful community together. Knowing neighbors is a key concept in doing this and with social activities this will come to fruition.
Roberta has seen first-hand how hard the volunteers work for community and she would like to take a more active part in the Edgewater Owners Association by serving on the Board of Directors.
