LIL Cheetah 5k Run
Jordan Murphy, 19, of DeWitt was in a tragic car accident Saturday, August 7, 2010. In high school, she was 2009 Homecoming Queen, 2009 Miss DeWitt, Cheerleader, All-Star Cheerleader & chosen class favorite all 4 years. She was a member of the Student Council, Yearbook Staff, FBLA, SADD, Spanish Club, A-Team, Science Club, EAST Lab, Leo Club and Art Club.
After graduating high school, she was hired and trained to assist the doctors at Hestir and Allen Family Dental and do all the in-house whitening, but her dream was dental hygiene. She was attending the local community college and working on her pre-requisites.
The loss of Jordan has been felt not only in our community, but also in several surrounding areas. This race is in her memory and all PROCEEDS will go to raise money for scholarships at her alma mater, DeWitt High School.
When Jordan was in high school,
I watched her in a track meet.
She ran like a Cheetah!!
One of the hygienist and I run together.
We tried to get Jordan to run with us,
sad to say we never did.
I nicknamed her Lil' Cheetah.
I bet she would have smoked us!
