Life at Murray County Central

What staff are saying about mcc

Murray County Central is a great school district! I've been employed by the district for 29 years and have always found this to be a wonderful place to teach. Our staff is cooperative and friendly, our administration is supportive and fair, and our students are some of the best I've seen. The MCC community has a lot of pride in this school and that pride is evident! In my opinion, there is no better place to be than MCC!

I chose to work at MCC because the hours worked great for raising a family. My kids go to school here and it is nice having the same days off as them. MCC has a family like atmosphere and everyone is always willing to help when needed.

I have spent many years at MCC both as a student and a teacher. I am blessed to work in a district that has great support from the administration and the community. I am thankful my own children are a part of the MCC family and have many opportunities through different classes and extracurricular activities. I am grateful for the staff, students, and families I work with every day. Rebel Pride!
