Scott Murray ‘01

Scott Murray ’01 is a tax principal for KBST&M, focusing on tax returns and tax related matters. Scott secured a job at a local accounting firm after graduating from Ƶ with a bachelor’s degree in Accounting. He then went on to earn his master’s degree in Business Administration and pass the CPA exam. Scott attributes his success in part to the relationships and experiences he had at Stevenson. From the support of his professors and baseball teammates to the skills he learned in the classroom and at his internships, Scott’s experience at SU was a memorable one.

Over the years, Scott has remained connected to Stevenson through his involvement with many committees, including the Alumni Association and the Dick Watts Sports Hall of Fame Board. As an employer, he and his firm make it a priority to provide internships to Stevenson students. He also enjoys visiting campus to watch baseball, soccer, and lacrosse games.


2022 Young Alumni Award

Matthew Bramble ‘10

Dr. Matthew Bramble ’10 is currently a member of the data sciences faculty at Children’s National Hospital, and Assistant Professor of Genomics and Precision Medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C. He is a graduate of Ƶ and went on to earn his Ph.D. in Human Genetics from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2017.

Upon completing his Ph.D., Dr. Bramble was awarded a Fogarty Global Health Fellowship through the NIH to spend one year in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to help build the country’s genetic research capacity and better understand the immunological outcomes of Ebola Virus survivors. Since this fellowship, Dr. Bramble has continued to work in the DRC, conducting research efforts to better understand the rare neurological disease Konzo and continuing to help expand the country’s research capacity.

His work has garnered numerous accolades: most recently, he was awarded a Fulbright Global Scholar Award, and spent the vast majority of 2022 in both South Africa and the Philippines. There he worked to expand user-friendly genetic tools to better diagnose inborn genetic conditions, a project he also leads in the DRC. His work is currently funded by the NIH Fogarty International Center with the aim of better understanding the molecular mechanisms that contribute to Konzo and working on methods of preventing this disease from affecting the world’s poorest children. Dr. Bramble is passionate about expanding genetic technologies and research capacity within numerous developing countries. He is a passionate mentor and teacher—lecturing in many countries on topics ranging from sexual development to neglected tropical diseases.
