On September 5, 2019, COL (Ret) Robert T. Murphy, an AG Corps Hall of Fame Inductee, Class of 2019, and his wife Gayl, contributed $1,000 to the AGCRA Scholarship Program. This is the first time in the Program’s history that any individual has directly contributed to providing funding for the Association’s annual scholarships.
COL (Ret) Murphy expressed he and his wife’s interest in contributing to the Association’s Scholarship Program as follows:
“I truly believe that the AGCRA is a tremendously important asset for the Adjutant General’s Corps. Not only does the organization visibly display the magnificent history of the Corps, it also provides much needed professional development opportunities for the Soldiers and Civilians working in the current Army Human Resources arena. This arena is dynamic, constantly changing and resource starved in many instances. As a member of the Association and a former Adjutant General’s Corps officer, I’m very impressed that AGCRA’s efforts have and will continue to make our Corps one that the Army can depend on for the very best Human Resources support for our Soldiers, Civilians and their Families now and in the future.
Gayl and I were discussing how we can help as Retirees. Recently I was on the AGCRA web site and noticed that the Association awards eight scholarships annually. We would like for the Association to increase the number of scholarships and we are prepared to pledge one thousand dollars annually to make this possible.”
