Murray Enggass, Gov. Bent ES

Murray Enggass is retiring from Governor Bent Elementary School after more than 32 years with APS.  Murray and his wife, Katie, left Michigan in 1981 in search of a sunny climate and better job opportunities for teachers. After a couple of years as a substitute and fifth grade teacher, he found his niche in fourth grade and set up residence in Gov. Bent's room 15.

Thirty years later, he has had the pleasure of teaching the children of many of his former students. Murray sponsors the Gov. Bent Mediators, teaching children strategies for conflict mediation, and was the recipient of the Nick Nellos Memorial Award for positive and peaceful conflict resolution.

In retirement, Murray is looking forward to traveling with his family and relearning the guitar. Of course, he will be enjoying the beautiful weather that drew him here with even more hiking excursions.

A reception will be held in his honor at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 10, at the school.
