Msgr. Murphy '58 receives Lead. Learn. Proclaim. Award
April 23, 2019 - Monsignor Tim Murphy ’58 received a Lead. Learn. Proclaim. Award from the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA). The award was given in Chicago during NCEA’s annual Convention and Expo. This award recognizes the outstanding efforts, contributions, and achievements of its recipients in Catholic school education. Monsignor Murphy was chosen from more than 150,000 teachers and administrators, as well as diocesan leaders and organizations dedicated to the nation's Catholic schools.

On receiving the award Monsignor Murphy said, “To have been on the receiving end of a Catholic education, almost from the womb, and then to know that you can impact others to the same extent, with lifelong effects, leaves you grateful for its place in people's lives.”

He was joined in Chicago by a large group of family, friends, colleagues, and supporters.

Thank you Father for all you continue to do for Central Catholic and congratulations on receiving this honor.
