Brendan and Cindy Murphy awarded the 1st annual Murphy Family Foundation Scholarship to two outstanding DECA students.  The Murphy’s mission is to “Give back locally” and to “Help those who can better themselves with a little help”.  They presented two $2,500 scholarships to Farrah McIntosh and Maya Reaume.  Mr. Murphy has employed SFHS Marketing WBL/Internship students for the past 13 years at Stayma Consulting Services.  The Murphy’s have three children who graduated from South Forsyth High School.
