Murphy, who assumed her new role earlier this month after serving in an interim role, began working in the MTSU Development and Foundation Office several years ago as a student intern.

She went on to serve as a graduate assistant for two years, working mainly with the office’s telephone fundraising campaigns, and has served as interim assistant director for the past year.

“During this time she repeatedly demonstrated her hard work and her commitment to her alma mater,” said Nick Perlick, director of development at MTSU.

“We have great hopes to elevate annual giving further during the final 18 months of the Centennial Campaign and beyond, and I could not be more pleased that Trisha will be leading those efforts.”

Murphy, a native of Murfreesboro, graduated from MTSU with a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s degree in education administration and supervision.
