Marie Callier, 4th Vice President, Membership

My name is Marie Callier and I will be your Membership Chair for the 2023-24 school year.  I’m super excited to be in this role and I can’t wait to work alongside some awesome individuals.  I am a graduate of the University of North Texas with a BS and MS in Accounting.  By day, I am an accounting/financial systems analyst and at night I get to be a mom to a sweet, amazing kiddo named MJ (4th grade) and a wife to my husband, Myron.  My husband and I have been in the Plano area for almost 18 years and my son has been a proud Gulledge Gator since Kindergarten!  I’ve always had a passion for working with and mentoring youth and have done so within my church affiliation.  After having a child of my own, I can gladly say that my time is now devoted to his many school events and extracurricular activities.  I’m thrilled to continue supporting him and the Gator community and I look forward to an exciting school year!
