Barry Greer, Mark Mayfield, and Gina Solorzano were announced as the 2023 Mustang Ambassadors just before kickoff of the Marble Falls High School homecoming game against Fredericksburg on Sept. 22.

Mustang Ambassadors are graduates of the Marble Falls Independent School District who have given back to the community.

“These ambassadors spent their formative, educational, character-building years within the halls of Marble Falls ISD schools,” Superintendent Dr. Jeff Gasaway said. “They have taken what educators poured into them and have blessed our community with their leadership.”

Greer graduated from Marble Falls High School in 1995 and attended Penn State University in State College, Pennsylvania. He is currently a sergeant in the Criminal Investigations Division at the Texas Attorney General’s Office and served for years as a detective sergeant with the Marble Falls Police Department. 

Greer appreciates the district’s emphasis on “preparing our kids for the real world by promoting CTE options for those who may not wish to pursue a college degree.”

Mayfield, a 1975 MFHS graduate, earned a degree from Texas State University in San Marcos and went on to work at the Texas Housing Foundation, where he still serves as CEO.

“My favorite thing about MFISD is the lifetime of friends and memories that remain so vivid in my mind — my coaches, teachers, etc.,” Mayfield said. “My children and I even shared the same teachers. I still remain very close to my classmates who have made Marble Falls their home.”

Solorzano graduated from Marble Falls in 2009 then attended the University of Texas at San Antonio. In March 2017, she was hired as the administrative assistant to the transportation director at MFISD. Two promotions later, Solorzano is now the director.

The self-described “Mustang Baby” spent countless hours on every campus with her mother, Mary, who worked for the district for over 32 years. 

“Marble Falls ISD has my heart and dedication because this is my family,” Solorzano said. “We are a small-town community with a small-town feel.”
