MISD Foundation for Excellence
President's Letter

As an alumna of the Murray Independent School district, it is with great pride that I now serve on the Foundation For Excellence. The name says it all. We strive to enrich the lives of students and faculty by partnering with them in educational programs and child development while maintaining the tradition of excellence that the school district is known for.

I am the mom of four children, one that graduated in 2017 and three that are currently enrolled in the district. The Murray Independent School district has helped mold them into successful students and genuinely cares about their successes. The foundation partners with the schools by providing help with development and enrichment opportunities for the teachers, tuition assistance, and various extracurricular opportunities for students, including field trip and technology funding.

As state funding tends to decrease each year, the role of the foundation becomes increasingly important and our fundraising efforts must continue to grow. We appreciate each and every one of our donors and encourage others to consider donating so we can continue our tradition of excellence. There are several specific causes under the "endowments" tab or a donation can be made to the general fund. Please let us know if you have any questions about donating.

I would like to thank Dr. David Koelsch for serving as our president for the past 4 years and for his efforts with our last triennial fundraiser. This foundation would not be possible without the tireless efforts of the late Dr. Wayne Bell and Dr. Charles Cella who currently assists with all aspects of the foundation. We appreciate all that you do!


Angel Renick, President
