Kelli Murphy ('01)

In 2003, I graduated third in my high school class and moved on to become a Gator down in the swampland of the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida.

I am in my senior year as a biology major and will be continuing on to medical school at Florida State University.

While in UF, I served as the president of the Keys Governing Body, a small government for the dorms (although I am supposed to call them residential halls), winning both the Spirit of IRHA (the highest award any individual can receive) and Area Government of the Year.

Currently I am working as a resident assistant, but in the past three years I worked in a laboratory for the College of Dentistry.

The Holocaust Remembrance Project was one of the most memorable times of my life. The experiences of meeting wonderful people, listening to stories of actual Holocaust survivors and being able to see Washington D.C. are simply unforgettable and I will always be glad I took the time to write that essay.
