Lawler Middle School sits on the site of what was part of the extensive Lawler farm, owned by Roger Lawler, longtime Frisco resident and landowner. In 2014, he and his wife, Jody, gifted the Frisco Education Foundation with $1 million to endow scholarship funds for students who would not otherwise be able to attend college due to financial hardship.
Lawler was born near Ben Wheeler Texas. When he was 16 he enlisted in the Navy just after World War II and was assigned to a submarine based at Pearl Harbor. He also joined the Marine Corps during the Korean War and was shipped overseas as a member of the Black Sheep Squadron. In between the wars, he attended both the University of Texas at Arlington and Southern Methodist University. Upon his return to Texas, he worked at United Airlines and NASA. In the 1960’s, he bought a farm in Frisco and continued to be successful buying and selling land. His support of educational opportunities has touched many.
