Biographical Information

A forward for Samford’s women’s varsity soccer team last fall, Emily is recognized across campus for her exceptional scholarship. In addition to being on the Dean’s List, she received the Scholarship Award from her sorority, Alpha Delta Pi, and the Student-Athlete Scholarship Award. Emily, who is interested in politics and aspires to go to law school, is also the Public Relations Chair for Samford’s Model United Nations team and a resource staff volunteer for Youth in Government. This past spring, Emily went to Washington, DC, to participate in Samford-in-Washington. The program allows the students, who are carefully chosen by the Political Science department from a small group of nominees, to learn more about opportunities for public service by meeting with prominent members of the State Department, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and other prestigious organizations. This fall, she will work as a Resident Assistant.
