Dan and Julie (Jones) Murphy met as Xavier students, graduated together in 1985 and were married in Bellarmine Chapel. But it was another part of their mutual history that led them to endow the Murphy Family Scholarship for middle-income, public school students from Hamilton County.
“It’s our roots,” says Dan. “Somewhere, somebody gave money so two public school kids who worked hard got a chance to attend a great university we could never have afforded. We wanted to give back, and we’re hoping other people will do the same.”
