SLU pro-life group names endowment

St. Louis University's Students for Life organization has announced the naming of the Virginia D. Murphy Endowment for Pregnant and Parenting Student Assistance. The announcement was made last month at a talk given by Alveda King, daughter of the late civil rights activist A.D. King and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The endowment, established last fall, will provide resources for SLU students who face the challenges of an unexpected pregnancy and parenting, so they can stay on the path toward earning a degree. Funding will help students cover the costs of tuition, housing, prenatal care,child-care and other areas. The endowment is named after the late Virginia Murphy, a SLU alum and longtime advocate for the defense of the unborn. She was a member of St. Pius V Parish in South St. Louis.
