MURRAY, Ky. (KFVS) - Retired Murray High School teacher, coach and administrator Mark Brady has established an endowment for Murray State University students.

With the Coach Mark Brady Scholarship Endowment, graduates of Murray High School will soon be able to apply for the $1,000 annual scholarship.

“My experience at Murray State prepared me well for a lifetime of service in a profession that has been incredibly rewarding for many years,” said Brady. “I truly believe that future Racers, through the assistance of this scholarship endowment, will encounter the same enjoyment that I experienced in assisting those who are in pursuit of an education.”

“As a teacher, coach and administrator in our community for many years, Mark has spent a great deal of his life in humble service to countless individuals,” said Dr. Bob Jackson, Murray State president. “We are very appreciative of Coach Brady’s establishment of this scholarship, which will benefit students who aspire to become future educators and impact others in the same manner that Mark has.”

Recipients have to maintain at least a 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale, and financial need may be considered.
