Jim Baurer

Board of Trustees


Jim has been a member, officer, and chair of foundation committees since 2009. He joined the foundation because he believes it has a very important role to play in helping foster excellence among our students, faculty, and staff.

Retiring from MSU after 31 years of service, during which he served as Director of Student Life, Jim accepted a position as Director of Maintenance with the MISD, a position he has held for twelve years. He is responsible for all facilities.

Previously Jim served as Athletic Director at Murray High for seven years. He has been coach of MHS Boys Soccer and also coached other sports, including both high school and middle school basketball.
