April Wilde Despain

Aa for April, A+ for Academics
Murray School Board 3

I am a Murray alumna who attended Murray schools from Kindergarten through 12th grade. I made some of my best friends during my years in Murray schools, and I loved the experiences and community I found there. My husband (also a Murray grad) and I moved back to Murray when our oldest child was one year old, specifically so our children could attend school in Murray District. We hoped our children would have similar positive experiences as we had had growing up in Murray.


We now have six children, and we are currently homeschooling due to the shocking political agendas we discovered embedded in Murray District during the 2020-2021 school year. I LOVE Murray, and I was and am deeply saddened to see these agendas overtaking our schools. I truly want what's best for my own children and all children in Murray District.


Because of these issues, I decided to run for Murray School Board. If elected, I will do everything I can to stand for our children. I will strive to make sure our schools are politically neutral and academically focused. Let's make Murray District a community where ALL are truly included and safe, and where students can achieve their highest potential for academic excellence!
