Academic All-Star

November 5, 2010

Starkville High freshman Emily Turner is a straight-A student and a “respectful young lady,” according to her teacher Marica Neal, and that is why she is this week’s academic all-star.
“Emily is a wonderful student,” Neal said. “Not only does she complete all work, but she also does so in a manner that reflects the respectful young lady that she is."
In addition to making straight As, Emily plays French horn for the SHS band, is a member of the tennis team and basketball team and is also a member of the Model UN Security Council. Outside of school, Emily plays piano and competes in tennis tournaments.
In school, Emily’s curiosity fuels her love of learning.
“I like learning why things happen,” she said. “Whether in history of math, I want to know why this occurred or why we needed this step. Learning allows me to understand the world around me.”
English is Emily’s favorite subject, and she also enjoys reading.
“Reading about people who are different from myself helps me to better understand,” she explained.”
“Emily is always prepared, and she thoughtfully completes all assignments — even those she knows I don’t plan to put a grade on,” Neal said. “She is a wonderful example.”
As for the future, Emily isn’t sure what institution of higher learning she wants to attend, but she does know she wants to major is architecture.
“I would like to specialize in the preservation of historic buildings,” she said of future.
Emily is the daughter of Jenny and Steve Turner.
