Massachusetts Family Institute Announces Leadership Changes

May 6, 2024

The Massachusetts Family Institute has announced a change in leadership.

Ian Huyett, who had served as president of the organization since September 2023, has accepted a new role at Cornerstone, a conservative family values organization in New Hampshire, as its associate director.

“During his tenure at MFI, Ian made notable contributions, including collaborating with MFI staff attorney Sam Whiting to establish a law center, which is scheduled to launch this summer,” a press release from the Massachusetts Family Institute said. “As Ian moves on to continue his advocacy work in New Hampshire, we wish him success as he continues the fight for faith, family, and freedom.”

The Massachusetts Family Institute is in the process of searching for a new president.

In the meantime, Michael King will serve as the organization’s interim chief executive offcer, while Kent Scott is serving as interim chief operations officer.

King is currently the organization’s Director of Community Alliances, whereas Scott is its Director of Advancement.

“Both leaders are deeply committed to MFI’s core mission — defending religious liberty, protecting parental rights and children in education, and upholding the sanctity of life,” the press release said. “They are particularly enthusiastic to support the burgeoning movement of church-based learning centers in Massachusetts, which are playing a crucial role in accommodating the increasing exodus of students from public schools. These centers, hosted by churches, provide invaluable academic enrichment and social support for homeschooling families, ensuring that parents remain at the heart of their children’s education experience.”

“Under the interim leadership of Michael and Kent, MFI is poised to continue its vital work without interruption, ensuring that the organization remains a steadfast advocate for families and family values in Massachusetts,” it added.
