Leading the Way: From Student to Statesman

Vol. 42 No. 7


Nicole Israel is the student editor of Student Lawyer magazine.

Five days a week Othel Doyle (“Trey”) Kelley III rises in the pre-dawn hours to commute an hour and half to class at Georgia State University College of Law, or head to work at a Cedartown, Georgia, law firm.

But Kelley not only packs his schedule with work and class time, this 3L also serves in the Georgia House of Representatives. He was elected in November 2012.

“I’m not someone who is content to sit on the sidelines, and I knew by serving in the legislature I could help promote policies to improve Georgia’s economy and lower the tax burden for Georgia citizens,” said Kelley.
