Emma Albright plans to attend Rochester Institute of Technology for 3D Digital Design once she graduates from Emmaus High School. During her time at Emmaus, Albright played an active part in the school community. She participated in the marching band and symphonic band, with her main instrument being the Baritone Saxophone. Her music skills have gained her a scholarship, and she plans to continue to play throughout college.

Stinger: Who was your mentor in high school?

Albright: Madame Kalb.

Stinger: What was your favorite part about playing/being involved in Band? 

Albright: I loved getting to know new people and strengthening my leadership skills. It’s helped me learn how to deal with rowdy children and how to be a strong yet relatable leader!

Stinger: What was your favorite high school memory? Why? 

Albright:  I don’t know if it counts, but attending the school trip to France, Austria, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein. It was an absolute dream come true, as I’ve been in love with foreign countries but have never gone before. I would do anything to go back to that public college ground in Austria, where me and my friends just sat in the grass and talked.

Stinger: What do you hope to accomplish after high school? 

Albright: I really hope to work for a game company, designing characters, plotlines, and scenery for games!

Stinger: What was your favorite class at Emmaus? 

Albright: My favorite class was probably AP Euro; it was super challenging, as it was my first AP class, but Ms. Furry made it a blast! I love learning about Europe, so it was really fun to know where all these fun little details in the country came from.

Stinger: What’s a song that describes your high school career? 

Albright:  That’s a hard question! I’d say “They call me Tiago” by Tiagz would be the best; it relates to me by how much pressure and stress I put on myself during my time in high school and I think it ended up being worth it. I realized my worth, and I realized now that there’s time to relax now that I’ve figured out my main goal and that my story is just beginning.

Stinger: Where was your favorite place at EHS? 

Albright: My favorite place was the language hallways! I loved walking down with my friends and naming every flag I could while they just laughed at me or shook their heads.

Stinger: What was your favorite school lunch food? 

Albright: Oh. My goodness. Their white garlic pizza was my go-to. I’m in love with that stuff and I was so disappointed to see they weren’t serving it this year.
