The 1990 state champion team photo, shown in a 1991 Maverick yearbook, will have a reunion on Oct. 10, planned by the Marshall Education Foundation.

The Marshall ISD Education Foundation is planning a trip down memory lane.

The foundation is set to host a fundraising event at 6 p.m. on Oct. 10 at Charlie's Backyard Bar with members of the 1990 Marshall High School Maverick state football championship team and coaches.

"We will recognize the 1990 Maverick state champions and have various food items as well as a silent auction and possibly a live auction," the foundation's Executive Director Nancy Fessler said Wednesday.

She said the foundation hopes to have current coaches from the Marshall High School Mavericks football team at the event as well.

Tickets are $40 each and can be purchased by calling Fessler at (903) 927-8820.

"We will also have a table set up at the varsity football games from 6 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 18 and 25 and Oct. 2 and 9," Fessler said. "The price of the ticket covers the food and seeing the players and coaches."

Silent auction items include a weekend at a Caddo Lake Bed and Breakfast, Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys tickets, jewelry, a guided duck hunt, an autographed item from Marshall native Odell Beckham Jr. and possibly an autographed football from Marshall native Y.A. Tittle.

The event is underwritten by True Love Law Firm and Marshall Ford.

Charlie's Backyard Bar is located at 303 North Columbus Street in downtown Marshall.

Proceeds from the event go towards the foundation which supports Marshall ISD teachers and students through the awarding of grants.

"The foundation is a great tool to be able to enhance the classrooms in ways that teachers would not have access to without our help," foundation President Diane Seal said previously.

The foundation has also worked over the past few years to raise money in the hopes of offering it to teachers with master's degrees to attract them to Marshall ISD.
