Executive Council Spotlight: Julie Ray

Executive Council Spotlight: Julie Ray


The MPCS Executive Council is the key leadership team who helps make the day-to-day decisions in support of fulfilling the MPCS mission. We encourage you to learn more about each member as we feature the various departments weekly.

Title: Chief Financial Officer

Education: Master of Business Administration, George Mason University

Number of years in my profession: 27

Professional experience: From 1990-1999, I worked in the international data networking telecommunications industry, including project management and sales management experience in the mid-Atlantic states.

Fun fact: My family and I make our own Christmas cards. I enjoy reading, movies, and watching K-dramas, but, mostly, I love my new grandson and am enjoying this chapter of life!

What I'm reading now or favorite book: I don't have just one favorite book, but Do Hard Things was an impactful book for me as we were raising our daughters.

Connections to MPCS: We have two alumnae daughters: Cassidy (Ray) Reese, class of 2016, and Hannah Ray, class of 2019. They were "lifers" at MPCS from preschool through twelfth grade, and, if I had it to do over, I would do it all again at MPCS!

What I love most about MPCS: I love the sense of family among staff and parents, the power of prayer among the body of Christ, the commitment to excellence, the agility and Christ-centeredness in all we do, and the sense of impacting the next generation, entrusted by God to provide for and protect this special place.

What I love about my role at the school: In my role, I'm content to watch and support an amazing group of people who make MPCS happen every day. From the Trustees through the head of school, the senior administrators, staff, and families, this place is a blessing. No one checks their clay feet at the gate, but we do our best, as hokey as it sounds, to authentically honor God, love others, and walk in Truth. Here, the mission statement is not just aspirational, although we are not perfect. It actually says what we are trying to do every day.

My hope for MPCS: I pray that MPCS will change the world and hearts for Christ, heal societal hurts, love the lost, serve the body, and use what God has gifted us with to fulfill whatever purpose He has designed into each staff, student, and family member.
