    Photo of Mary EvansMary Evans served on the Allen ISD Board of Trustees from 1981 – 1993. She held the post of board secretary for 11 of those years. She was also a member of the 1985 school board that received the Texas Association of School Administrators Outstanding School Board Award.

    Mary Evans and her husband Jack moved to Allen in 1972. Their daughter Abby is a 1985 Allen High School graduate.

    Like many school leaders, she first became involved as a PTA room mother and then a PTA volunteer. She served on the Allen ISD Community Education Advisory Board for seven years starting in 1981. Both Mary and Jack have been strong supporters of the agriculture and athletics programs at Allen High School. They currently live on a horse farm near Celina, Texas but remain active supporters of Allen ISD including Allen Eagle season ticket holders for over 33 years.

    Demonstrating their respect for teachers, Mary and Jack Evans have personally sponsored and hosted the Allen High School Top Ten Luncheon since 1993. The annual luncheon honors the top ten graduating seniors and a teacher they wish to recognize for their success.
