Paul and Michelle Murawski Create Planned Gift to Share the Salve Regina Experience
Grateful for all Salve Regina did for him, Paul Murawski ’80 and his wife Michelle have established a planned gift designed to give future students the same life-altering opportunities.
Arriving at the University from his then-home in Old Bridge, New Jersey, Paul was able to attend Salve Regina thanks in part to the generosity of others. That is why he and Michelle have established a planned gift honoring Paul’s parents, Jules and Lillian, that will enable future Seahawks to experience the same world-class education.
Paul says Salve Regina gave him a firm moral compass and a springboard for a successful life. During more than four decades working in marketing, merchandizing, and licensing, he has traveled to dozens of countries, always taking the Catholic perspective the University provided, including an understanding of how to work with individuals living in poverty.
“Salve changed my life,” Paul says.
A 2011 inductee of the Athletic Hall of Fame, Paul started every basketball game during his four years at Salve Regina and was a founding member of the varsity soccer team. He credits then-athletic director Paul Cardoza with mentoring him to be a successful student-athlete. He also credits two basketball coaches who were important to his experience, Tony Ames and George Butler. Employed today as the director of marketing and trademark licensing at Yale University, Paul still attends Seahawk athletic contests and plans to return to campus for the all-class reunion in June.
Establishing a planned gift allows Paul and Michelle to “pay it forward,” Paul says. They urge fellow alumni to reflect on what Salve Regina has meant in their lives and do the same.
