LSU School of Kinesiology student Kelsey Bradbury excels among the university as a Tiger Twelve 2013 member and Phi Kappa Phi LSU Outstanding Senior. Bradbury graduates December 2013 with a degree in human movement sciences.

Bradbury is among the group of 12 individuals to be awarded for her positive contributions on campus and the Baton Rouge community. The Office of the Dean of Students recognizes twelve outstanding seniors, Tiger Twelve, each spring that represent/exemplify the “highest standards of academic, personal, and social integrity; practice justice, equality, and compassion in human relations;” and also “respect the dignity of all persons and accept individual differences.”

In addition to this honor, Bradbury is also the recipient of Phi Kappa Phi’s Outstanding Senior award. The group’s mission is to recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others. The organization is the oldest, largest and most selective honor society for academics, and the LSU chapter named Bradbury the 2013 Outstanding Senior.

Phi Kappa Phi LSU nominates one senior each year for the Outstanding Senior award. The nominee must express a number of qualities, including leadership experience and an outstanding academic record. Bradbury was the 2013 chosen candidate.

Bradbury will graduate a semester early in hopes to participate in the Spring 2014 Disney College Program, and continue on to medical school in Fall 2014.

 “The kinesiology curriculum at LSU has given me such incredible opportunities,” Bradbury said. “It has opened so many doors and really exposed me to the medical field.”

Bradbury was enrolled in the School of Kinesiology’s cadaver laboratory and internship program. She recognizes how the two courses readily prepared her to apply to medical school.

Bradbury is additionally involved in many other LSU and community organizations, including LSU Ambassadors, National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS), Everybody Reads and Leadership LSU. She is also the vice president of Alpha Epsilon Delta, a resident assistant in Miller Hall and a LSU UREC fitness instructor.
