One year ago the McKinney Education Foundation was thrilled to receive a bequest from the Garrison Charitable Trust in the amount of $2.25 million. We are grateful for this opportunity to put the funds towards the students of McKinney ISD in a variety of ways. The endowment not only provides scholarships it also supports our Higher Education Campus Advisor program.

MEF awarded a $35,000 scholarship from the Elisabeth and Ben Garrison Scholarship Endowment in 2013. Hannah Moltz, MHS Graduate, received the award to attend New York University. Moltz said "The opportunity to go to any college is amazing, but I never dreamed I would be able to afford my dream school."

MEF Executive Director, Edie Heinicke said "MEF worked with the Garrison family to award scholarships for years. We are honored to receive such a generous donation that continues to invest in the lives of McKinney ISD graduates."

MEF appreciates each one of our generous donors who help make students dreams happen through higher education. We would not have the opportunity to help so many students afford college without each one of the donations we receive. Thank you to all of contributors.
