InterVarsity Staff |Email
|Chelir Grady grew up in Houston, TX and graduated from Texas A&M University in May 2009 with a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering. Immediately upon graduation, she began her engineering career at the Williams Companies, working for the company in Utah, Georgia, New Jersey, and currently in Houston. While continuing full-time with Williams, in 2011 Chelir entered into the Masters of Theology program at Dallas Theological Seminary.
Not knowing about InterVarsity while in college, Chelir was introduced to InterVarsity at their Urbana 2012 Mission Conference. Shortly after she accepted a campus staff position with InterVarsity, and in August 2013 she began planting the InterVarsity chapter here at Texas Southern University. Now entering her 3rd year on staff Chelir continues to build the chapter, while also balancing her engineering position and graduate studies.
