Mr. Edwin (Chief) Bonayon

Hello, I am Edwin Bonayon (Chief) and am new to Cartersville GA! This is my first year teaching and I am excited to be a part of the Canes family.

I’ve had a diverse military career spanning over 23 years. My journey began in July 2000 by enlisting in the Marine Corps, where I served with distinction for four years. During my first two years, I was selected for the Presidential Honor Guard (8th&I). Following my tenure in the Presidential Honor Guard, I got stationed in Hawaii, where I served as a squad leader in 3/3 Kilo. Additionally, during my time in the Marines, I earned a spot on the All-Marine Wrestling team.

After completing my service in the Marines, I embarked on a new chapter in my military career, enlisting in the Idaho Army National Guard as an infantryman to continue my service to the nation. From there, I transferred to the Colorado Army National Guard, where I served as a Supply Sergeant for three years.

I then joined the Wisconsin Army National Guard, where I served as a Senior Supply Sergeant for the 54th Civil Support Team for seven years. My last transfer was to the Wyoming Army National Guard where I served as the Property Book Officer for the 94th Troop Command.

I am married to my beautiful wife Ashley and we have seven wonderful kids Bubba, Easton, Benson, Faith, Wisdom, Oakley, and Austyn. I am also a giant Boise State fan. Do you remember when Boise State beat Georgia 35-21? I do!!!

Go Canes!
