Remembering their father’s legacy

Dr. Harold Murphy, a dedicated father, professor and member of his community, was a pioneer in the field of counseling education who spent his life working to improve the lives of others.

In honor of Dr. Murphy’s memory, his daughters Annette Murphy Taggart and Sharon Murphy Anderson established the Harold Murphy Memorial Endowment. The endowment provides full academic support to at least one doctoral student studying counseling.

A community benefit was held on July 30 to establish the endowment, reunite those who were a part of Dr. Murphy’s life, and celebrate his life of dedication to others.
