Each year, the McMurry University Alumni Association celebrates alumni achievement at the Night of Distinction event, where we recognize alumni who are leading lives of distinction and who embody McMurry’s core values of Learning, Excellence, and Service.
McMurry shares in the loss of our loved ones and friends
When we’re made aware of the passing of an alumnus/a or friend of the University, we update the record and print an In Memoriam notice in The Messenger magazine and remember the deceased at our annual Final Ala Cumba ceremony.
* Listing in the magazine is not guaranteed due to limited space. A full listing of Friends We’ll Miss is posted below.
Every Homecoming, we hold the Final Ala Cumba ceremony near the Sacred Wind statue on the McMurry University campus. This annual ceremony honors the memory of McMurry alumni, friends, former students, faculty and staff who have passed away since our last homecoming.
