The Murray State University Alumni Association’s Raising Racers Legacy program is designed to educate future Racers about Murray State by providing age-specific gifts throughout their childhood. Our definition of a legacy is any child between the ages of birth and 18 “lucky enough” to have one or even two parents or grandparents who are Murray State Alumni.

Sara Talwalkar (pictured) is a 2020 graduate of Murray State and the daughter of loyal Murray State alumni Dr. Vish ('89, pictured) and Susan ('91) Talwalkar. Dr. Talwalkar, a Distinguished Alumnus of Murray State, said he and Susan were proud to share the Racer tradition with Sara and that it ultimately was the best choice for her and for their family. "First and foremost, Sara felt it was a great fit for her. The normal anxiety that parents feel when sending their first child off to college was certainly diminished knowing that she was going somewhere that we considered a home away from home. Many of the people within the Murray State community were familiar to us from our time as students. We knew that she would get a great education and make many lifelong friends along the way. "
