The newly formed Katy ISD Education Foundation recently held its inaugural luncheon for prospective Board of Directors in an effort to recruit area community leaders to participate in the organization. More than 30 guests attended the event, with 27 of those committing to the Board of Directors.
“We are overjoyed at the response we received from the luncheon as this inaugural Board is vital to the success of the Foundation,” says Marcy Canady, Executive Director of the Katy ISD Education Foundation.
“The Foundation’s mission is to fund innovative projects that are aligned with the mission, strategic plan, and educational philosophy of the school district,” says Pete Gavrel, President of the Katy ISD Education Foundation Board of Directors. “We exist for the sole purpose of supporting the school district in the mission of realizing unparalleled learning experiences for our Katy kids.”
“The Foundation will open new funding opportunities for supporting and enhancing educational programs for students and teachers,” says Canady. “Most importantly, the Foundation will provide another way to engage our community through our Board of Directors made up of local leaders, who will help to maintain the high standards of excellence expected in Katy.”
