The purpose of the Murray Education Foundation (MEF) is to promote and recognize excellence in Murray schools by encouraging contributions and building partnerships to enhance education. Created in 1981 and originally named the Murray School District Foundation, the name was changed in 1994 to the Murray Education Foundation (MEF).
However, the goals are the same.
MEF is managed by Executive Director Jeanne Habel, who has overseen the foundation and a rotation of eight to 12 board members since its inception. The executive leadership is also supported by three additional district staff members.
