He also helped build the development program at Trezevant Manor, where he raised millions of dollars to expand its facilities and improve services for residents. Murrell has been an active member of the AFP since 1996. He has served in numerous positions on its board of directors, including chapter president in 2005.

“In our work as professional fundraisers, we are proactive and compelling ambassadors for our organizations,” said Virginia Stallworth, current AFP chapter president. “Dan is dedicated to doing that and more. He serves as an ambassador for the fundraising profession and the nonprofit sector.”

A graduate of Millsaps College, Murrell received a master’s degree from the University of Memphis. He also earned the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) designation.
