More than 100 people gathered in Hulston Hall to dedicate a classroom in honor of Marcy Graham – a friend, mentor, benefactor, distinguished graduate of the MU School of Law and University of Missouri curator emeritus. At the end of the celebration, we also surprised Marcy with a Mizzou Football shirt in recognition of his time as a linebacker in high school.

Marcy was Board Chair when I began my appointment at the UM System, and he’s made an indelible impact on me and so many others. He is always generous with his time, especially for his many mentees, and lives life with purpose and integrity. I was proud to join others in honoring his contributions.

Marcy’s supporters contributed more than $100,000 to help renovate the classroom prior to the dedication. The modernized Maurice B. “Marcy” Graham Classroom will remind future law students that they too can make a difference.

I’m grateful for Marcy’s many years of service. I also want to thank his wife, Edna Mae, for sharing him with the University of Missouri community.

Congratulations, Marcy!
