Murphy Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Program
The Murphy Chamber of Commerce was formed in April 2003. The Chamber, wanting to give back to Murphy, awarded scholarships of $1000 each to one Murphy resident graduate in the two school districts serving Murphy, PISD and WISD for the next few years. In 2006, the Scholarship Foundation was formed as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization within the Chamber and awarded two $1000 scholarships in 2007. Jon Lashbrook served as Chairman from the inception and continued through 2018, during which time the Foundation increased both the dollar amounts of the award, along with the number of awards presented. At the close of 2018, the Foundation had awarded 54 scholarships totaling $85,000.
2019 brings new changes to our Scholarship Foundation Program. Jon Lashbrook will continue to serve as Chairman Emeritus with new Co-Chairs, Steve Dault and Maria Reilly. Unlike in previous years, the scholarship awards will not be ISD boundary based. 2019’s six awards of $1500 each are open to all Murphy resident students who are graduating at the end of the 2018-19 school year, including CTE (Career and Technical Education) students, home-school and private school students, along with our PISD and WISD college bound Murphy resident seniors.
The application link below will close on April 1st, 2019. Award winners will be notified by April 15th, 2019, and presented at the May 21st, 2019 Murphy Chamber of Commerce Luncheon.
