Nestled in the midst of Louisville, historic Spalding University combines a rich history and a commitment to community service to attract students who desire a high quality education in a very personalized setting. A uniquely engaged faculty serves 2500 students at the bachelors’, masters’ and doctoral levels, providing quality, real-world learning in liberal and professional studies.
Spalding University represents a legacy of education established in 1814 by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. In 1920 the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth founded Nazareth College occupying the historic Tompkins-Buchanan-Rankin Mansion at 851 South Fourth Street, thus establishing the Louisville campus. Since 1984, the independent liberal arts institution that began as Nazareth Academy near Bardstown, Kentucky, has been known as Spalding University, honoring the roots established by Mother Catherine Spalding, founder of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth.
Teresa Speed, MHS principal, said Graham is a fine young woman who exemplifies the motto of MHS Tradition, Pride and Excellence. "Whether Beth is in the classroom, or on the golf course, she demonstrates the work ethic to be a true Murray Tiger. I am proud to call her my student."
A member of National Honor Society and a 2015 Leadership Tomorrow alumnus who will enter as an undeclared major at Spalding, Graham is the daughter of Chris and Rebecca Graham, Mayfield.
