Amber Murray
By Abi Hutton Senior Amber Murray is the co-copy editor of the Griffin Rites and has held an editor position in the newspaper since her sophomore year. “I joined the newspaper staff because my sister was editor in chief my freshman year and I wanted to follow in her footsteps,” Murray said. Besides being on the newspaper staff, Murray is also in Key Club, Scholar Bowl, and Theater. While balancing these extracurricular activities, Murray is also eighth in her senior class and the only person left in the fourth year of the Biomedical Program, which she considers her greatest accomplishment thus far since she did all of this while overcoming the limitations of a heart condition. Murray is aiming to graduate with the Gold Medallion diploma while remaining in the top ten of her class. Post high school she would like to go to the University of Minnesota, where she plans on getting her undergraduate degree and then going through their medical program in order to graduate as a Forensic Pathologist. “Even though I have a heart condition, it doesn’t define me. The only thing that defines me is my work,” Murray said.
