Mizzou leaders and alumni gathered in the Mizzou Law courtroom on Sept. 8 to honor a special alumnus who has spent decades advancing the University of Missouri, the state and the lives of his clients: Marcy Graham.
As UM System President Mun Choi announced at the ceremony, former 332A Hulston Hall, one of the most-used rooms at the law school for classes, seminars and events, will now be named the Maurice B. “Marcy” Graham Classroom.Thanks to a fundraising campaign in Marcy’s honor, the room has been refurbished and refurnished for the first time since Hulston Hall was built 35 years ago. Featuring new carpet, paint, classroom technology, tables and chairs, the Marcy Graham Classroom is now one of the most advanced classrooms at Mizzou Law.
