In honor of Martin Luther King Day, Seminole State College hosted a special MLK program on Jan. 16 featuring guest speaker Judge Tammy Kemp of the Texas 204th District Court. During her presentation, “My Journey to the Courtroom,” Judge Kemp discussed her path to becoming a judge and all of her experiences along the way. She recently presided over the controversial case of Amber Guyer, a former Dallas policewoman who was tried for the murder of Botham Jean. Judge Kemp is a native of Wewoka, Oklahoma. She earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance and a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Oklahoma. After graduating law school, she worked as an Assistant Attorney General and an Assistant Secretary of State for the State of Oklahoma, before relocating to the Dallas area.
