Thalia Murray Scholarship

This scholarship is offered in memory of and to honor Mrs. Thalia Murray, who taught in the San Diego Unified School system for 20 years, including 17 years at Marcy Elementary (now Mission Bay Montessori) in U.C. She received a scholarship that allowed her to attend a high-quality, 4-year college, which dramatically changed her life for the better. By working closely with a committee comprised of key EdUCate! Board members, our goal for this scholarship is to have a similar impact. This Scholarship is awarded each year to one eligible senior at University City High School in the total amount of $2,000.

Congratulations to Veronica “Nikky” Berta, recipient of the 2017 Thalia Murray Scholarship.
