ABAC Selects Murphy Scholarship Recipient

August 23, 2017

Sarah Kremin, a nursing major from Tifton, has been selected as the recipient of the Christie V. Murphy Scholarship in Nursing at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

“We are honored to have a scholarship in memory of Christie on our campus,” Troy Spicer, Dean of the ABAC School of Nursing and Health Sciences, said. “She was a special young woman and a proud graduate of our nursing program. Sarah Kremin shares Christie’s passion for the nursing profession and is an excellent choice as the recipient of this scholarship.”

The scholarship is named in memory of Christie Ann Vickers Murphy, who passed away in 2013 at the age of 27. Murphy attended Irwin County High School and earned her associate degree in nursing from ABAC in 2009. She was an avid competition dancer and a devoted wife to her husband, Kyle. Murphy’s career included service as a registered nurse working in telemetry and pre-op with St. Joseph’s Hospital in Bryan, Texas.

Don Vickers, Christie Murphy’s father, recently came to ABAC to meet Kremin and wish her well in her nursing studies. Additional contributions to the Christie V. Murphy Scholarship fund are being accepted and can be made by contacting Deidre Martin in the ABAC Office of College Advancement at or 229-391-4907.
