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.

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.
