Murphy Scholar Mallory Magruder '21 graduated with distinction in Sociology/Anthropology with an emphasis in Sociology. It’s no surprise that she won the Murphy Scholars Program’s “Farthest Travelled” Award: she studied abroad in Morocco and Ghana, and while in Ghana took language lessons in the Twi dialect. Mallory also earned the Juanita D. Sandford Social Justice Award. We loved having her in the Murphy Scholars program, and are excited to see where life takes her next. Congrats, Mallory!
