Shrewsbury – The Shrewsbury Education Foundation (SEF) has announced that it will host its annual awards dinner Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013. This year, SEF will be honoring former Shrewsbury School Committee member Mark T. Murray with its Community Service for Shrewsbury Public Schools Award. The event will be held at Cyprian Keyes Golf Club in Boylston at 6:30 p.m.

The Community Service for Shrewsbury Public Schools Award is presented to a town leader who has gone above and beyond in delivering outstanding service to the community and to the Shrewsbury Public Schools.

Murray served five terms on the School Committee, from 1996 to 2011. He has been a coach for Shrewsbury Youth Soccer, Shrewsbury Youth Hockey and Shrewsbury Little League, an assistant track coach for the Shrewsbury High School track team, in addition to completing 10 Boston Marathons. Murray is currently an associate publisher of the “Worcester Business Journal,” to which he brings 20 years of sales and publishing experience.

Mark and his wife, Cheryl, moved to Shrewsbury in 1989 and are the parents of six children.

SEF will also celebrate the recipients of the John P.

Named for former Shrewsbury Superintendent of Schools John P. Collins, Ph.D., honors will be presented in five categories: Professional Educators, Paraprofessionals, Support Staff, Team Teachers and Leadership.

Tickets to the dinner are $65 each, and are tax-deductible. Ticket purchases support funding for teacher grant programs and awards.
