WHEREAS tonight we come together to honor Charles Y. Murphy III (Kim), a man who has inspired others to live with the same compassion and care he possesses; and
WHEREAS Kim was the recipient of Camden County’s 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Medal award, which he earned through his selfless contributions towards making Cherry Hill, and the entire Camden County community, a more accepting, unified, welcoming place to live; and
WHEREAS Kim is an active member of the community, serving as a Deacon and an Elder in his church, an officer of his bowling league, and a member of the Singing City Choir, the oldest multicultural multi-ethnic choir in the United States; and
WHEREAS since 1998, Kim has volunteered three days a week from February through April as an AARP Tax Aide, offering tax preparation for those in need; and
WHEREAS when he isn’t busy helping others, Kim can be found playing the occasional round of golf or spending time with his wife, Jane and children, Charles and Kimberlee; and
WHEREAS through his volunteerism, community service, and leadership, Kim serves as a role model for all of our citizens and exemplifies the core values that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. devoted his life to teaching, and for that, he has made the Township of Cherry Hill very proud.
