Bridget Trawhon, Professional Communications Teacher, said, “Emmi Lummus is owner of the million-dollar smile!  I have been privileged to work with Emmi as activities coordinator and she possesses a spirit that is rare in high school students.  She is thoughtful, yet determined; kind, yet competitive.  Emmi has all of the qualities of an amazing leader and will succeed in future endeavors.  Congrats, Emmi!”

Selena Hennigan, Algebra 2 Teacher, said, “Sweet Emmi!  Even on her worst day, she always has a smile on her face!  She is a wonderful, smart, well-rounded young lady who works hard to maintain above average grades while she plays a critical role in many after school sports and outside activities.   I look forward to seeing where Emmi is in a few years!  Without a doubt, she will continue to surround herself with the love of her family and friends, and shine wherever her path takes her!”

Jennifer Willis, Girl’s Athletics, said, “Emmi is a compassionate leader with a drive to always be her best. She is the type of leader that makes the people around her better. Emmi has a beautiful heart and is very deserving of this honor.”

Josh Smalley, Athletic Director, said, “Emmi- Emmi, Emmi, Emmi I am so proud of you. As I look back on my 7 years, at Orangefield, as AD I can’t find anyone that symbolizes what it means to be a Bobcat more than Emmi. She is a member of the Varsity volleyball team, Varsity basketball team, Varsity golf team, and Varsity track team. Emmi inspires me every day to give my job everything I have, because that is what I see when I watch her play. More importantly, she inspires me to be a better person. She is one of the kindest humans I have ever been around and has a servant’s heart towards others. Raised by two great parents, if I were to have a daughter, I would want her to be just like Emmi Lummus. A true competitor on the field or court, we are going to miss her leadership tremendously when she graduates. Emmi is also tough as nails, and should a scene break out, I am going with her cause I know I am going to survive. I would have loved for her to play football for me. We ask our athletes to give all they have to our program, school and community, and without a doubt Emmi has done that.”

Emmi Plans to attend Sam Houston State University with a major in Education and a minor in Kinesiology.
