Hayes Broker Liam Murphy Named Katherine Harvey Fellow

The Santa Barbara Foundation has announced its selections for the 2013-14 Katherine Harvey Fellows, an 18-month leadership development program.

The program’s 15 participants are young professionals, ages 25 to 45, from diverse fields and communities across Santa Barbara County who have a passion for learning about and engaging in community leadership and philanthropy.

Founded in 1999, the program’s fellows have raised and disbursed more than $400,000, including matching funds from the Santa Barbara Foundation, and have funded agencies and projects such as Youth Making Change, Community Economic Relief Fund and People’s Self-Help Housing.

Liam Murphy, a commercial real estate broker and Westmont College alumnus, was chosen for the current class. The Katherine Harvey Fellows program is selected from nominations made by Santa Barbara Foundation trustees and staff members and from alumni of the Katherine Harvey Fellows program.

“It is a great privilege and honor to be selected for this program,” Murphy said. “I look forward to working with this class of fellows and learning from the alumni and mentors that make the program a vital source of leadership and philanthropy for our community.”

Murphy has made representation of nonprofit organizations a priority in his professional work as a broker with Hayes Commercial Group. For example, he was integral in helping Habitat for Humanity move to a more prominent and functional space in Goleta.

Outside of work, Murphy enjoys volunteering with local church, educational and philanthropic groups in Santa Barbara.

“Katherine Harvey Fellows is an amazing resource for our community,” Murphy said, “and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
