A Port Arthur native, Adams graduated from Abraham Lincoln High School in 1992. He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in administration supervision and secondary education, both from Xavier University in New Orleans.

Adams received his Juris Doctor from St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio.
