Colin Ming CCP Scholarship

About the Scholarship

  • Colin Ming was a cherished member of the Murray’s Cheese family who joined the company in 2015 and served as Regional Team Lead for our National team in the Kroger enterprise. He sadly passed away in June 2019. Colin made a significant impact at Murray’s and Kroger in the four years he spent with our team, and in the broader cheese and beverage communities before that. Colin was known for his insatiable passion for food, his love of teaching and for his team, and above all, for his compassion and authenticity.

  • Colin was in the process of preparing to take his CCP exam this past summer when he unexpectedly passed. Although he was not able to complete his studies, Murray’s Cheese wants to make sure that other mongers who embody the same traits of inspirational leadership, kindness, warmth and professional poise have the opportunity to do so. The Colin Ming CCP Scholarship will both memorialize Colin’s impact on our industry as well as continue his mission to share his passion for cheese with other mongers.
