Woman Of Distinction – July 2024


Trasa Cobern is not a native Texan, but she got here as quickly as she could!

Trasa came to Texas at the age of 17 after receiving a full academic scholarship to Texas A&M University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, cum laude. She married her husband, Kyle, 28 years ago, and they currently have four adult sons.

Trasa stayed home with her children for twelve years, and then became an award-winning U.S. History teacher. She is most proud of receiving the Outstanding Teacher of the U.S. Constitution award from Constituting America in 2019. With her students’ encouragement, she ran for City Councilmember and was elected in her hometown of Hurst, Texas.

After that election, she became involved with Republican politics. She ran for Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector and became a member of Tarrant Star Republican Women, which she attended the week after losing in the primary. She was asked why she was there, and her answer was that she would work to elect Republicans, even if she wasn’t the one elected. She has worked on many campaigns since.

She has held many leadership positions including President of Tarrant Star Republican Women and TFRW Candidate Development Program Coordinator. She also served as TFRW Military Project Coordinator. Trasa now serves as a Precinct Chair.

Other positions Trasa held were Tarrant Star Awards Chair, Tarrant County GOP Outreach Chair and Lincoln Day Dinner Chair. She currently serves as a Board Member of the city’s Parks and Recreation in Hurst.

Trasa also has the distinction of being a published author and a Fox News contributor.
