Board of Directors

The McKinley High School Foundation Board of Directors is comprised of 39 volunteers who are business and community leaders in different fields of work. All directors are proud graduates of McKinley High School who work hard every year to ensure that the Foundation’s mission is fulfilled, and that the endowment will be substantial enough to perpetuate scholarships for future “Tigers.”
