Albert Einstein once said that”Setting an example is not the main means of influencing people. It is the only means. If this is an absolute truth, then Cornetta Murray is an absolute example of how we should conduct ourselves professionally and personally as well. I have her for over ten years. She has always been the paragon of grace, intelligence,industry and optimism. Paul McIntosh

Ms. Murray is an extremely caring and dedicated human being and her warmth and passion is easily seen by anyone who gets the opportunity to know her. She is very personable and she makes it easy for you to open up and share when it matters most. Children can find it difficult to trust adults but when they meet Ms. Murray, they seem to open up right away as she has a honest and open demeanor about her. She listens without judgement and she is always willing to share the difficulties she experienced as a teenager and this allows her to bond with students right away. She cares about children and put them first and for that she is indeed a life changer.

Lavern Morris Posted over a year ago

I have known Cornetta now for over 25 years and I can say without a doubt that her life has always been about helping people. She is always sacrificing for her kids, her family, and other 'family' that she adopts as her own. She has provided room and board for so many people in need of assistance and sometimes I don't know where she even finds the money to feed so many mouths but she does somehow. And she truly loves children, hence why she chose her profession. She goes above and beyond for her kids as she refers to them and her job is not only a job, it is her passion. I am one of those people whose life she has touched by giving me a place to stay at a time in my life when I lost direction and wasn't sure what I was doing. She took care of me like her own child and I will forever be grateful. I can say with certainty that nobody deserves this recognition more than she does. She is an angel.

Staci lewis Posted over a year ago

Ms Murray: is an amazing wonderful person, she have a heart of gold she’s great with the students and have there best interest at heart.

Jacqueline James Posted over a year ago

Cormetta Murray is a phenomenal person, with a love for the young people she serves. She is hard working, and has an open door policy for all of the kids. Therefore, they have access to her whenever they need her. In addition, Cornetta has voluntarily taken time out on Saturday mornings to escort the kids to take the specialized high school exam. She also sacrifices her lunch break to supervise kids lunch periods. When they stay after school for practice or go on trips, Ms. Murray spends her money to ensure that the kids who don't have money, can get something to eat. She serves as an advocate for our youth with parents, staff or other kids. Cornetta cares for the children as if they were her own. Therefore, I know she is a wonderful candidate to be Life Changer of the Year.

Gabrielle Dwyer Posted over a year ago

Life is full of experiences, but whether negative or positive it makes a world of a difference when you’re not going through those experiences on your own. Ms. Murray has dedicated her life to seeing the good in situations that seem too difficult, finding the light in areas of darkness, reaching the unreachable, and instilling hope, faith, and love into the hearts and minds of those around her. She continuously strives to show each individual that where they’re coming from doesn’t have to determine where they’re going. Her transparency not only comforts but it teaches. She encourages, she inspires, she motivates, she cares. Her ability to help mold and shape the lives of the young people of tomorrow is in fact remarkable. She is indeed ...a life changer!

There's not enough thanks in this world for what Mrs. Murry has done for my sons. She always stay on top of them, encouraging them to do more. She made sure I was informed of everything my sons was focusing on or need to do to be successful in Village Academy. She always said to me," It takes a village to raise a child" and she meant that. There was nothing my sons could not go to Mrs. Murry for. When my son was having trouble applying to HS there go Mrs. Murry, taking her time to go over his academic grades and choosing a school that fits my son. I couldn't ask for a better Role model, School Mother and Friend than this woman Mrs. Murry. God bless her and Mrs. Murry never stop what your doing because this world is becoming hard and hard for our children. We need more Mrs. Murry's in this world and Far Rockaway. God bless...

I met Ms. Murray four years ago when my daughter entered her school with an Iep but she still worked just as hard for my daughter as I did . I was an difficult parent because every school social worker I met was not helpful towards me and my daughter but not Ms.Murray she is very loving caring women and we have grown to love her as part of our family still after my daughter has been gone for two years now and she still stay in touch. I want to tell one story about her that people don’t know she goes way above her responsibilities and make sure our kids are good and safe and for that the world deserves to know how phenomenal this women is to us. This is the perfect platform for her so everyone can know what kind of woman she is she likes to stay in the background but this is her time to shine and shine she shall.

Ms. Murray is a hard working and dedicated individual. When she takes on a tasks; no matter how simple or complex she gives 100% of herself to ensure that it is not only completed but done in a manner that will effect positivity to those involved. Such is the case with her and her students. It is not the easiest task to teach, guide and mentor our youth and yet she does just that with passion, love, and patience. Ms. Murray is truly a blessing to all she may encounter. She reminds us that life is precious and every moment cherishable with a genuine smile, carefree laugh and heart of pure gold. "To infinity and beyond" should be her motto because there is absolutely no limit to how far she will go to help others! Selfless indeed.

It was once said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” Ms.Murray has the ability and understanding cemented with patience to identify and work with all children to identify and facilitate their abilities. She works tirelessly with a persistic attitude.Always encouraging and explaining with Job like patience in order to initiate self belief and learning. The school world and the world of learning needs more of the Murrays. gift is
