Notes for Emma

Emma, congratulations on graduating!! I am so excited for you and your upcoming graduate program. I can’t wait to hear about all the incredible things you will accomplish there and beyond. I am so thankful for you!

Emma, your work as Interregnum chair this year made me so proud to be a King’s alum. You are a credit to this community, and you truly led by doing with your grace, incredible hard work, insight, wisdom, kindness, and passion this year. All your future communities will be so blessed to have you! Enormous congratulations, and I wish you all the luck in the world with all you have ahead!!

Emma, it’s ridiculous that we didn’t actually meet until the last semester your senior year, but congratulations from a fellow Nebraskan!

Emma you are a queen! You’ve done so much. You’ve gone above and beyond in your service to the House System and Interregnum! You are the best. Thank you for serving with such humilty and patience. Congrats on graduation!

Emma, thanks for all that you’ve done for this community. Your enthusiasm for all things academics is far above what most of us mere mortals can muster and it fueled your capacity to lead the Interregnum committee this year. Thanks for going above and beyond to make this community a better place—I’m so grateful for the efforts of you and your team.

You are such a star. I feel so incredibly lucky that I’ve gotten to know you during your time at King’s. You are such a humble leader and I will look up to you always!

Emma! I am so grateful to know you. You are a powerhouse of a woman, and the work and love you have put into school and life is hard to ignore. Congratulations!

The master of the poker face!! It has been such a pleasure to get to know you over the years. Praying for you in this new season. Congratulations to you!


You are hard working, dedicated, loyal, artistic, beautiful, filled with integrity. I’m so impressed with your accomplishments, and (daily, it seems) I can’t believe I get the privilege of being your dad.

Keep your feet on the ground and your head in the clouds,

Romans 12:9-13

Dear Emma,

How far you have come, and how loved you are. Rejoicing with you. And looking forward to what lies ahead.

Your aunt 💜

Congratulations Emma! You did a wonderful job leading the Committee this year. King’s is a better institution because you were here. Good luck in grad school!

I think the easiest way to showcase what a good friend you are is the fact that you still willingly talk to me after our first few minutes together consisted of a fly flying into my mouth.

Emma, you are beyond talented, smart, funny, and kind. There are many great things to come in grad school and beyond. Love you, friend!
