Episode 18: Mabrie Griffith Jackson and Marshall Jackson

Mabrie Griffith Jackson and Marshall Jackson weren’t born in Plano, but they got here as soon as they could.

Get the inside story on their relationship and why they’re excited about the future. Spoiler alert, that future probably includes more episodes of Marshall TV.

We’re sending a Plano Podcast Valentine to one of our Plano’s most beloved characters: Officer Arthur G Parker Jr., better known as “OP”, school resource officer at Clark High School. He has made a positive impact on the lives of thousands of kids in Plano.

Parker, who has been with the Plano Police Department for 31 years, was the department’s Officer of the Year for 2015, making him the first school resource officer in department history to receive that award. He’s also the only Officer in Plano we’re aware of that has a Facebook Fan page.
