To Larry Murphy

Larry Murphy has served on the GRCC Foundation board since 2010, including three years as chairman. He is credited with guiding the organization during a time when the increasing need for student support was met with expanded scholarship opportunities.

During his time as chairman, the number of scholarships awarded increased 32 percent to nearly 1,000, and the total amount awarded increased by 34 percent to $1.1 million. While he has stepped down as chairman, he remains a co-chair of the foundation’s A Broader Vision campaign, along with trustees James V. Buzzitta and Deb Bailey.

We thank Larry — who was named director emeritus this summer — for his tireless advocacy for the foundation’s mission of helping our students get the resources they need to obtain an education that will transform their lives.
