Pedro Pedroza | Murphy Class of 2003

Murphy Alum – Pedro Pedroza¬†– shared his immigrant story as part of the One Chicago campaign. Pedro’s family moved from Mexico to Chicago when he was 4 years old, and he went to St. Ignatius College Prep as a Murphy Scholar before attending Cornell University.

You can learn more about One Chicago, how to get involved, and hear stories of other fellow Chicagoans at

Please welcome the Class of 2017 to the Murphy Alumni Network!

78 graduating seniors are now Murphy Alumni! Last week, we celebrated all of their successes at the 2017 Senior Celebration. We would also like to thank the Murphy Alumni that came back to talk to the graduating senior class about their college experiences and share their advice. It was great to see older Murphy Alumni supporting the newest group of alums!
