Patsy McDonald was an innovative teacher in the MFISD for 28 years, teaching mathematics and physics. She had also taught at SWTSU and the University of Texas in Austin during her college years, and after working at MFISD went on to work with the development and implementation of the UT Quest program.

The Patsy's Legacy Project Grant was established in May 2015 to honor her. Patsy would enjoy knowing that she continues to be a part of educating children through these grants. A total of $5,000 was awarded to this year's recipients.

Next year's applications are due Aug. 31, 2018, and can be found on the website under "forms.”
