Quote from teacher: “Never have I met such an interesting, thoughtful, fantastic student as Emily,” said Jill Posta, math department chairman. “Her interests span the disciplines: calculus, theatre, physics, current events, trigonometry, reading, stewardship, astronomy, and writing. What I like best about Emily is her congenial, inviting attitude when motivating her peers - she is the epitome of how to lead by example.”
