What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?

I am excited to focus on my specific interests (chemistry and music) by enrolling in more in-depth classes. I hope to utilize internship and study-abroad opportunities as well as join various extracurricular groups. I am especially interested in joining the band and orchestras at UW-Platteville; being involved in these ensembles will likely be the highlight of my year.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I am a part of many different music ensembles and I spend much of my time practicing or preparing for events. I feel fortunate to have been hired to perform for weddings, church services, parties, and holiday concerts. Music is a large aspect of my life, and I have grown from the people I meet in addition to the experiences themselves. I also live on a dairy farm, where in the summer I work alongside my parents. I enjoy feeling the satisfaction of knowing my work helps my parents and plays a role in the success of our farm.

Emily's Thank You Note

I am extremely grateful to be the recipient of the Mount Horeb High School Community Scholarship. It is meaningful to have been noticed for my efforts thus far, but more importantly it motivates me to continue performing at a high standard. While planning for college, I have become increasingly worried about how I will limit my amount of debt after graduation. This scholarship will remove some of this worry, and allow me to focus more on my studies and music. I am thankful for your consideration and assistance in providing for my future experiences at UW-Platteville.
