About Us

Our Mission

The Cabarrus County Education Foundation (CCEF) began as the brainchild of Grace Mynatt and the late Roy Davis, Jr. As a retired school teacher, Grace believed that “the world our children live in demands the highest quality education we can provide.”

In sharing her vision to create an education foundation for Cabarrus County Schools, she reached out to Roy Davis. He stepped forward and donated $100,000 as the initial seed money for the foundation. He stated,

“I believe strongly in public education in Cabarrus County… My challenge to all of us who know the value of an educated mind is to support the foundation.”
