In 1996, a group of devoted citizens, who had a long-standing commitment to education, organized the Muscogee Educational Excellence Foundation. Knowing that much of the success of our community depends on the quality of our local schools, the Foundation strove to enhance the quality of our educational system by focusing on the people who have the most direct impact on our students – the teachers. Through their efforts and the work of succeeding board members, the Muscogee Educational Excellence Foundation has evolved into one of the leading advocates of excellence in public education in our region. The Foundation’s Board of Directors works diligently to foster innovative and effective teachers through the Teacher of the Year program and the teacher grant program.
