A group of Auburn High alumni and others came together to honor Coach Murphyʼs legacy by creating a permanent scholarship fund in his memory. The Wayne Murphy Scholarships are awarded to an Auburn High School female and male athlete each year and is based on each athleteʼs character, academic record, sportsmanship and need.

He was always able to motivate his athletes to run faster and farther, jump  higher and perform better. He also shared whatever he had with others. Murphyʼs final professional role was as the first director of athletics for Auburn High School, a position he held from 1991 until his retirement in 1998. It was his vision that eventually led to the current AHS field house and the modernized track facility that now bears his name. During his tenure, the athletic programs at Auburn High, Auburn Junior High and Drake Middle School expanded tremendously and numerous sports were added for both male and female students.
