Upper School

Meet Emily, ‘14.

When she was in 6th Grade, she was in the cast of her first musical. By 8th Grade, she knew that her favorite class was History. Having spent three years at the Middle School, Emily was naturally excited for the academic challenges, small classes, and activity opportunities she would find at the Upper School. What she did not expect, however, was just how many doors would open up for her.

As a freshman, Emily decided to go out for the Cross Country team. Despite not having run competitively before, she came to preseason training ready to learn. Throughout the fall, she was assisted by Coach Szech, who was also her World History teacher, and became close with other members of the team. Knowing that she had the support of these new friends, she considered running for SGA. With this new confidence, she did. Today, she is the Tri-M Music Honors Society liaison to the SGA, and plans to run for office again this fall.
