From Twin Falls High School Vice Principal Nancy Jones
As Emma’s advisor for the past two years, I’ve witnessed a work ethic and a level of personal excellence that I’ve witnessed in very few students. Emma is a student who is focused on bringing her best to every class and task she is faced with completing. You can always depend on her to be in school, fully engaged and working hard.
I am so proud that Emma is the recipient of this award; I would be hard-pressed to find another student who is more deserving.
Since September, I've had the honor of helping to choose local students to be featured in our Scholar of the Week program along with CapEd Credit Union.
More from Emma
School activities: I participated in the debate team freshman through junior year and have participated in the TFHS mountain bike team. I also participated in Cross Country sophomore year.

Education: I have fulfilled most of my credit requirements for high school, so this year I decided to go to CSI for most of my school day. I plan on graduating from high school with only about a semester left for my associate’s degree. I currently have a 3.94 GPA.
College Goals: I am planning on finishing my associate’s degree at CSI. I am majoring in education with an emphasis on History. After obtaining my associate degree I want to earn a bachelor’s and a master’s degree. I am currently researching programs that allow me to accomplish my master’s in 3 years rather than 4.
Career Goal: My goal is to finish my schooling and become a secondary history teacher. Eventually, I want to continue my degree and obtain a doctorate. After advancing my degree I want to become a professor at a college.
