Ginny McMurray

McMurray is already familiar with the Hendrix community, having served as Director of Development and Foundation Relations for the College since 2010. Before her arrival at Hendrix, she worked as Grants and Research Manager for CHI St. Vincent Foundation and Director of Development at Wildwood Park for the Performing Arts in Little Rock. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Agnes Scott College with a B.A. in English and Music, and earned her M.A. in Business with an emphasis on Arts Administration from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. 

McMurray fills the vacancy created by the appointment of the Rev. Wayne Clark ’84 to serve as president of the United Methodist Foundation of Arkansas. She had filled the role in an interim capacity following Clark’s departure. 

“Ginny has done an outstanding job in her interim capacity and as has worked diligently to continue the momentum of the Be Hendrix campaign during this time of transition,” said W. Ellis Arnold ’79, Senior Executive Vice President & General Counsel, Dean of Advancement for the College. The $110-million Be Hendrix campaign includes support for endowed scholarships; the under-construction Miller Creative Quad, which features student living space, resources for the music and film studies programs, and the Windgate Museum of Art at Hendrix College; and investment in new on-campus centers for Career Services, Inclusive Community, and Teaching and Learning. 

“I am honored and eager to assume a leadership role at Hendrix,” McMurray said. “We have a strong development team, and I look forward to working with them to continue our momentum in the Be Hendrix campaign.”
