I’m George Chism, the Shelby County Commissioner for District 2. I have enjoyed being a part of the Shelby County Commission these past three years, and now I look forward to representing you as your Shelby County Trustee. 


For those that don't know me already, I was born and raised for the last 53 years in Shelby County. I am a product of Shelby County. I have been married to my wife, Tracy Chism, for 29 years. We have two children, Barnes and Anna, who grew up in Shelby County, were educated in Shelby County, and have now made their home in Shelby County.


I received my Bachelor of Science in Finance from Memphis State, and later I continued my education at Union University receiving my Masters of EDU. 


The role of Trustee serves as the banker for Shelby County. Having gained 20+ years of experience in the banking and financing industry, I have the unique skills needed to serve as your Trustee.  Along with my career experience, I have also imbedded myself as a part of the community. I have been a member of many organizations here in Shelby County, such as:


  • Cross Check Athletics
  • Memphis Gridiron Ministries
  • Graduate of Leadership Germantown 
  • Paul Harris Fellow / Rotary
  • TSSAA Member 
  • Gift of Life
  • Jaycees
  • Collierville and Germantown Chamber of Commerce
