"I am making this contribution in memory of my mother, Marjorie Poland Avera, Class of 1942. After retiring from the Texas Department of Mental Health/Mental Retardation, she returned to Jacksonville and became active in HOPE, served on the Cherokee Child and Family Services Board, and was active in First United Methodist Church. She taught me and others exactly what it meant to truly be a servant leader!" Bill and Heather Avera.
