MCC-Penn Valley Says Goodbye to Murvell McMurry
Thursday, July 21 marked the last day of Mr. Murvell McMurry's career at the Penn Valley campus of Metropolitan Community College. His poutluck-style retirement party was held on the 5th floor of Campus Center Thursday afternoon and was attended by his wife, co-workers, former students' he's helped throughout the years, and members of his high school graduting class. The room was decorated with cutouts of his infamous sayings that have rung through Penn Valley halls for nearly the past three decades and guests signed a hand-crafted model parking lot to commemorate the occasion.
Mr. McMurry worked in various facets of student services at Metropolitan Community College for nearly 30 years before his retirement and has undoubtedly touched many lives of those around him with his engaging personality. Now that his days as an MCC employee are over, he plans to do some travelling with his wife. Best of luck to Mr. McMurry in his retirement; his presence and wit will be greatly missed!
