College Station, Texas

Mary was raised on the family farm and ranch near Rosebud in central Texas.  Her dad was a former student, Texas A&M Class of 1949.  Mary’s earliest memories of Aggieland are of attending Aggie Muster and football games with her dad.  Collectively, Mary’s family has earned 24 degrees from Texas A&M.

Mary earned both her bachelor’s (‘86) and master’s (’88) in health education from A&M.  She has spent more than 30 years in post- acute and long-term health care as an administrator and consultant.  Most recently, she worked at Generations Center for Senior Living in Bryan as administrator and project consultant on its re-development. Currently, she is pursuing a master’s degree in bioethics at Creighton University.  She hopes to utilize the knowledge gained from the program to aid in her philanthropic work in health care and education.  In 2020 that service included being on the Baylor Scott and White Advisory Board as Co-Chair, the Baylor Scott and White Central Texas Foundation Board, and the College Station ISD Education Foundation Board.

Mary, and her husband Jack, reside in College Station.  They have three children, John (Class of 2017), Liza and Jacqueline (Class of 2023).  Both Mary and Jack are active in the family’s real estate investment firm, Culpepper Realty, which was established in 1937 with strong ties to Texas A&M.  It now operates commercial real estate in 14 markets throughout Texas.
