Emily Brownlow’s main goal in high school has always been to get involved. She believes that through getting involved, you can gain experiences, friends, opportunity, and insight. Volleyball has been a huge aspect of all four years of her high school experience. She has also been involved in Student Council from freshman to senior year, which allowed her to partake in bettering the Twin Valley community. Emily only had the opportunity to partake in MiniTHON for junior and senior year since it is a new club. However, the experience in this club was incredible. She truly enjoyed raising awareness and money for childhood cancer. Sophomore year Emily was inducted into National Honors Society which is a huge achievement. She was chosen due to her placement in the top ten percent of her class, and alignment with the four pillars - scholarship, character, leadership, and service. High School Heroes is another program Emily loves being part of. Once every other month, they take a trip down to the elementary school Emily attended, and teach lessons we plan, to each classroom in our assigned grade level. LINK was a truly amazing experience, Emily got to take part both junior and senior year. LINK stands for Leaders in the Networking of Kids, and it is a weekend full of team building and connecting to make the community at Twin Valley stronger. Outside of school she enjoys continuing to contribute through community service. The summer before sophomore year, Emily went on a mission’s trip to Guatemala. This experience was completely eye opening and humbling, and Emily can’t wait to go on another mission’s trip. She also is very interested in the arts and entering pieces in art shows. Three of the biggest awards she has received for art have all taken place at the Congressional Art Competition. Emily was awarded 3rd place for a colored pencil drawing, 1st place for an embroidery project, and Best-in-Show for a graphite self-portrait. Along with being awarded Best-in-Show, her self-portrait will be hanging in the U.S. Capitol Building for a year.
