Muecke carries an intensive background in community service, philanthropy and leadership in the arts including her current position on the Board of Directors for both the Houston Ballet and Hope Stone, Inc. Muecke has served on numerous boards and as President of several organizations including Depelchin Children's Center, March of Dimes Houston, and Houston Grand Opera.
"We are thrilled to welcome Beth [Muecke] as the Head of Development for Texas Legacy Foundation, Inc." said Vivian Wise.
