What We Do

Rich Meseroll "Coach Mez" Athletic/Activity Memorial Fund

Rich Meseroll, better known as Mr. Meseroll, Coach Mez, or just Mez, was a beloved career educator and coach in the Chandler Unified School District for 25 years.  He was passionate about teaching and coaching, leaving a legacy of teamwork, fairness, and inclusivity, positively impacting countless students over his tenure. 

“What will happen to this student if I don’t help him/her?” 

As a teacher and a coach, Mr. Meseroll/Coach Mez, personified the Good Samaritan.  If any of his athletes/students were in need, he would find a way to help them, even if it meant reaching into his own pocket to assist. 

The Coach Mez Activity Fund has been established in his name to honor his passion and mission that athletes/students who want to participate should have the opportunity to do so.

Student Nomination Form

The Coach Mez Activity Fund provides financial support for students to participate in sports or extra-curricular activities.

Priority is given to students in extenuating circumstances.
