****The MEA family is deeply saddened at the loss of our own J. Scott McGilvray. He stood for honesty and integrity. Scott was a deeply committed husband and father. He was a strong coach, mentor, and a social justice warrior. MEA will be establishing a scholarship in Scott’s name for students who will major in education or political science. Contributions to this fund are being accepted.****
