Walter Murrah realized early on that if change was going to happen anywhere in the world, in his community, or in his life, that change had to happen within him.
Walter is now bringing that change to St. George’s Scholar Institute as the new Program Director.
Walter brings over 10 years of marketing, media, and management experience to the table with a primary focus on youth programming and community building. His passion is fueled by seeing young people recognize the beauty of their dreams and helping to fuel their fire in any way he can. In his spare time, Murrah enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, and DJs around Louisville at community events, festivals, and schools. This man knows no strangers!
