Sue Ann Mackey Endowment Campaign launched by Mesquite ISD Education Foundation
“Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” -- Albert Einstein.
The Mesquite ISD Education Foundation has launched an Endowment Campaign in the name of Sue Ann Mackey to ensure that her selfless service to Mesquite ISD will be recognized in perpetuity.
“Few individuals have matched Mrs. Mackey’s passion and dedication to Mesquite ISD’s mission of excellence in education for young people,” said Mesquite ISD Education Foundation Executive Director Randy Lewallyn. “Mrs. Mackey’s life was a model of service. Her love for her family, community and especially Mesquite ISD was a defining characteristic of her life,” Lewallyn said.
Mrs. Mackey, for whom Mackey Elementary School was named in 2004, served as a Mesquite ISD Board Member from 1979 to 1994. Most recently, she was a passionate member of the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation Board and served on the Steering Committee when the Education Foundation was established 10 years ago, Lewallyn said.
The Mesquite ISD Education Foundation has chosen to honor her service through the creation of the Sue Ann Mackey Endowment.
“Throughout her life, Mrs. Mackey’s love of children and her support of education earned her the admiration of the entire community,” said Education Foundation Board President David Belt. “Please join us in our effort to honor Mrs. Mackey’s service by making a donation to the Sue Ann Mackey Endowment. Principal from the Endowment will remain intact in perpetuity as a lasting impact for Mesquite ISD students,“ Belt said.
