A Master-ful Thank You

All fundraisers know that the two small words “thank you” are very powerful, and when written by a future Masters champion — they’re also extremely prophetic!In this 2009 thank you note, 21-year old golf great Jordan Speith, who won the 2015 Masters,  writes to the family who provided a scholarship at Jesuit College Prep in Texas. Young Jordan was able to attend Jesuit because of the Joseph M. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Fund.  He thanks the family for their help to “strengthen my academics as well as my golf game,” mentions that he’s the Number 1 junior golfer in the nation and shares his dream of winning the Masters.

Dreams do come true, and often times, they started with help from generous people who made a meaningful charitable gift. Terry Murphy ’61 created the scholarship to honor his late father, who had also attended Jesuit.

Congratulations to Jordan Speith and the Jesuit College Prep family.
