A new McMurry remembrance event, the Final Ala Cumba, will be held on Tuesday, November 1, at 5:15 p.m. around the Sacred Wind statue on the campus quad. This ceremony was created to honor the memory of McMurry alumni, friends, former students, faculty and staff who have died in the previous year. The traditional McMurry phrase “Ala Cumba!” translates as “On to Victory!”

Since this is McMurry University’s  inaugural event, the roll call will include names from further back in McMurry’s history. If attendees would like a specific person memorialized, they are invited to submit names and information to Suzann Couts, McMurry’s director of alumni relations, at 325-793-4608.
