It is with great pleasure that Emily represents Village Academy. As an educator for the past 30 + years I have not met a student that clearly represents dedication, and determination to beat the odds. She is always looking for opportunities to grow as an individual and pushes herself out of her comfort zone. Emily ranks at the top 5% of her class with a 4.5 college weighted GPA. She has enrolled in the most rigorous course of study at Village Academy and presently serves as President of the Interact Club. I can always depend on her to disseminate the information to the club members to ensure we have participation in the various activities.
