For his Eagle project, Murphy and a group of volunteers from Bishop O’Dowd High School, Alameda High School, Oakland Strokes Rowing Team and the Troop re-landscaped an overgrown garden area at Lincoln Middle School. 

Murphy presented his plan and budget to the school’s PTA and was granted funds for the project. He also raised the funds needed for project’s completion.

The beautification project included placing plants and forming  paths of decomposed granite centered on a large table and benches for the middle schoolers to gather.
