Mike Hays joined Family Legacy as our new Vice President of Funeral Operations in December 2015. Mike began his funeral directing career in 1990 in Lexington, Kentucky at Milward Funeral Directors, Inc. where he was mentored by some of the best in the profession. Having been a teacher and a basketball coach prior to beginning his funeral service career, he committed himself to learning, teaching and the constant pursuit of a better arrangement conference. Along the way, he has continued to develop targeted training events for arrangement counselors (both at-need and preneed); he has taught classes at industry conventions and conferences and mortuary schools, and even served as interim president of Mid-America College of Funeral Service.
His willingness to teach and his positive spirit brings a new level of leadership to our funeral team, as we continually strive to provide the best possible customer service.
Mike was educated at the United States Air Force Academy, Berea College and Asbury Theological Seminary where he earned a Master of Divinity degree. He comes to us from Louisville, Kentucky. He and his family are in the process of relocating to Sumner County.
