Murray said. “Once we start going to be a 4 year school all of a sudden you’re just one of multiples and at that point you get distracted really easily from whether it’s going to be the parties or all the course offerings, maybe it’s a distraction because an instructor that suddenly opened up your mind to a different possiblity, so it just kind of exploded from there.”

Murray was also awarded the “NIACC Outstanding Alumni Award” for her motivational public speaking.
