Katy ISD Superintendent Alton Frailey, during the Board of Trustees Work Study meeting of Monday, Sept. 19, gave a report regarding the creation of a Katy ISD Education Foundation. Marcy Canady will lead the Foundation as executive director.
“I am pleased to announce that Mrs. Canady will take the lead of the Education Foundation on a full time basis,” says Frailey. “Canady is a great fit for this responsibility, bringing to the table a comprehensive set of skills that range from classroom teacher and K-12 campus administrator, to central office and most recently school public relations.”
Canady has led the development of all aspects of the Katy ISD Education Foundation to this point in her role as Assistant Superintendent of School & Community Engagement. In this first phase, the Foundation has received a Certificate of Incorporation and has filed for 501(c)(3) status. Canady is also working to secure inaugural Board of Directors who will assist in the fundraising and governance of the Foundation.
“Through the Educational Foundation, our community will have another opportunity to come together and unite behind one great cause – our school district,” said Frailey. “Additionally, with current educational budget challenges being felt all across the state, this Foundation will help us fund many projects that we otherwise could not afford.”
An inaugural Education Foundation luncheon for prospective Board of Directors is being held on Oct. 5, 2011 at the Katy ISD ESC. For information regarding how you can get involved, please call 281-396-2355.
