Mary Lynn was a PHS graduate in 1939 and also served on the committee for the first Prosper Homecoming. Her chosen vocation was that of a stewardess for American Airlines after attending North Texas State University. Blessed with 63 years of marriage, their two children graduated from Prosper High School with one later teaching in Prosper ISD for many years. Three of their six grandchildren graduated from Prosper High School and two great-grandchildren attend Prosper schools today. The Boyers lifelong civic mindedness and faithful community work through their church helped lay the foundation for the greatness of Prosper today. Boyer Elementary School opened in August 2018.
