LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Fayette Education Foundation announces creation of the Alan Marcus Stein Leaders in Education Giving Society in appreciation of his lifetime commitment to Fayette County Public Schools and to honor his legacy as the first chairman of the board of The Fayette Education Foundation.
The name Alan Stein is synonymous with Lexington, particularly when it comes to baseball and radio but it is Stein’s dedication to the Fayette County Public School (FCPS) system over the years that spurred this special recognition.
Stein is an FCPS alumnus having attended Cassidy Elementary, Breckinridge Elementary, Morton Junior High School and is a proud 1970 graduate from Henry Clay High School. His father and all three of his children are also Henry Clay graduates.
He remains active in the Lexington business community where he has been an owner of multiple successful businesses, including formerly the Legends minor league baseball team.
Stein’s volunteer service for the district is extensive. He currently serves as the first-ever chair of this current iteration of The Fayette Education Foundation. He has twice served on redistricting committees in 2003 and 2014-15. Stein was a member of the Equity Council in the late 1990s and served on multiple superintendent search committees. He served as founding co-chair of the Academies of Lexington and chaired the Facilities Nickel Tax Incentive Committee to Support School Safety Initiative.
Stein has served on the Long Range Planning Committee since 2012 and served on the FCPS Advisory Committee on Athletics from 2004-2007. All of this in addition to serving on multiple other community boards including the Governor’s Scholar Program and the BCTC Foundation Board.
