Brian Overbey
Brian Overbey, a Murray native, has lived in Murray most of his life. Brian and his wife, Lee, love Murray and the wonderful people that make this community great, but they had made plans to experience life outside of Murray after completing college.  Brian had a job already secured in Louisville, KY prior to completing his education at Murray State University in 2005.  The time away from home was a very beneficial experience as it allowed them to grow and appreciate more what an excellent community Murray is.  “Lee and I knew we wanted to come back home to Murray and raise our family in this safe, friendly town, and enjoy time building memories with our family. This place is very special to us as we started our relationship at the age of fifteen here when we met at a Freedom Fest Concert at MSU’s Roy Stewart Stadium.  We un-expectantly met that night and have been together ever since.  We are now blessed with three beautiful children after fifteen years of marriage.” The call to come back home came much sooner than they had planned as Heritage Bank called and offered a great position just a short time after they purchased a home in Louisville.    

Brian currently works as Vice President Commercial Lender at Heritage Bank.  He is very active in many organizations in the community.  He serves as a Deacon at the University Church of Christ, Treasurer for United Way, Board Member on the Murray Calloway Community Foundation, Board Member on Life House Care Center, Treasurer for Friendship Cemetery Board, a participant in the 2017-18 Leadership Murray Class with the Chamber of Commerce, and member of the Young Professionals of Murray. In his spare time, Brian enjoys spending time playing sports with his children and being with family and friends on Kentucky Lake. 

Brian Overbey joined the Murray Calloway Community Foundation Board in November 2012. When asked the question, why are you involved with MCCCF?  His response was this, “I was encouraged to serve on the community foundation because I quickly saw the value of the immeasurable impact that foundations can have on a community due to the power of endowments that will continue to positively impact the community I love for many years after I am gone.  I serve on many boards and organizations and they all share one continued concern.  How are we going to accomplish our goal and where is the funding going to come from?  What I like about the Community Foundation is that they have worked very hard to answer to address that funding concern that all non-profits worry about.  The endowments will not replace non-profit fund raising immediately but over time, it will allow them to have support funds and continue to grow in perpetuity to where the endowment distributions could fully support the funding needed for area non-profits year after year. This is what motivated me.  I wanted to be a part of something very special that is much bigger than my efforts alone and will improve the lives of people in this community forever.  God has blessed me in so many ways and my hope is to be a blessing to others as I work to serve Him.”
