  1. Terrific story of immense courage by a Murphy alum in his workplace(and all our place of travel). Richard put his life on the line to save others, showing us how on many occasions life depends on the good nature and courageous acts of others. Thank you, Richard!

  2. New York does have its own heroes…He is a model for those that have no sense of humanity…Thank you for reminding us that LIFE is worth fighting/saving even that of a strangers..

  3. Richard Singleton has always distinguished himself at the Murphy Institute for his thoughtfulness, intense study ethic, interesting analyses and commitment to higher education. I am glad to have had the opportunity to work with him in our Urban Studies graduate program.

  4. Richard, what a great act of courage and civic responsibility. A model for us all. We’re proud to have you as part of our community. Greg Mantsios
