At just 14 months old, Murph is easily the youngest employee in Hall County Schools. He was born in the state of Washington and has only been in Georgia for a little more than a month, but his supervisor says he has adjusted quickly to his new life and job. He has gone through extensive training for his work, which consists mostly of walking through middle and high schools looking for hidden items that are not supposed to be there.
