Maura Scully Murry
308 George Hall
Originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, Maura attended LSU as a first-generation college student and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. The support and encouragement she received from faculty and staff had a huge impact on her ability to succeed in college. Wanting to pay-it-forward, Maura pursued a career in Higher Education to make a difference for students. Throughout her nearly 20-year career as an educator, she has been a strong advocate helping students who have been marginalized, under-served, or simply needed someone to listen. She is excited to be the newest member of the FASTrack team.
