Family of the Year
Each year, during Parent & Family Weekend, Parent & Family Services celebrates a parent or family member that has been an inspiration to their student. These parents not only go above and beyond for their student, but they also support the University of Memphis community through volunteering, serving on committees, and being an ambassador for the university. Parent & Family Services invites students to nominate parents, family members or guardians whose lives have been an inspiration to their students and others as the Family of the Year.
2023 Family of the Year
Congratulations to Sharon and Greg Corley, our 2023 UofM Family of the Year!
In her nomination essay, daughter Ashleigh Corley stated: "My parents have not only showed me how to keep my spirits high during tough times, but they have also shown me that showing kindness and spirit to others can go a long way. They are the most selfless, energetic, passionate people I have known and they have become tiger parents to not only me, but to all of the people I have met along my collegiate journey."
