Celebrating 40 Years of Service

Our Legal Counsel, C. Westbrook Murphy, pictured here with some of the 2017 Scholars, is retiring after 40 years of service to the Foundation. Mr. Murphy is well known for being a tireless champion of both all things Truman and all things Truman Scholar. His contributions to the work of the Foundation are responsible for much of our success today.
