The University of Tennessee Institute for Public Service has announced the establishment of the Jim and Marie Murphy Endowed Scholarship for Graduate Studies. The scholarship was recently funded at $25,000 through the generous support of the Murphys, the County Officials Association of Tennessee (COAT), other county associations and many other individual donors.
Jim Murphy, an partner in Bradley Arant Boult Cummings’ Nashville office, also serves as the vice chair for The University of Tennessee Board of Trustees.
“We are very grateful for the Murphys’ interest in helping others achieve their educational goals,” said Dr. Mary Jinks, vice president of public service. “I am confident that future recipients of their scholarship will be grateful as well.”
