A native to Louisville, Kentucky, Arthur Cox has worked as Executive Director of St. George’s for over ten years. In 2004, he led the successful organizational transformation from a recreational hangout into a premier educational after-school program for youth in West Louisville, where it still thrives today. Arthur earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Management from the University of Louisville. He has served as numerous youth development committees and coalitions within the community and is trained in outcomes, Youth Quality Assessment Programs, and nonprofit leadership. Prior to his role at St. George’s, Arthur worked with Youth Alive, YMCA, and LYON. In his leisure time, he enjoys traveling and spending time with his two beautiful children, Omari and Aniyah.
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!
