Campus Champion

Emily Thomas, an early childhood/childhood education major and outdoor and environmental education minor, is president of the Education Club, one of the university’s largest student clubs. From 70 to 130 students attend the biweekly meetings to hear speakers, share ideas and have fun that centers around education. Emily recently led the club’s first book drive. Reclaiming books left in storage by previous Education Club members, these were distributed free to student teachers and teachers from the community. Emily, who also works as an admissions tour guide, orientation assistant and childcare center worker, was thrilled by the book drive’s great turnout and positive feedback.
