McMurry 100 and All Century Teams Announcement Event

The McMurry 100 is a list of 100 individuals and groups of individuals that made an outsized impact in the ten-decade history of McMurry. Our All-Century Teams honor athletes from across McMurry’s history that achieved personal success and brought accolades to the school.

Centennial Time Capsule
As part of our Centennial celebration, we will seal a time capsule to be opened 25 years from now. Please submit your ideas for items to be enclosed in the time capsule that are indicative of this time in history—either McMurry’s history or our country’s history. For example, no item would be associated more with the 2020s than a face mask!
Grounded in History, Soaring to the Future
