LaGrange College is a part of me. I obtained a B.A. in Religion in 1991 and a Masters very recently. My wife is also an alumnus and we both currently serve on the Alumni Executive Board. Walter Murphy through his dedicated service and leadership expanded the educational, ethical and philanthropic footprint of LaGrange College far beyond the hill and in doing so laid the foundation for those to follow.

My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the entire Murphy family. I have many happy memories of Dr. and Mrs. Murphy during our years at Andrew College. I am grateful for his friendship through the years and the many contributions he made to both Andrew College and LaGrange College. He will surely be missed.
