Ms. Harrington was introduced by Burney High School Principal Ray Guerrero. Lion George Whitfield presented her with a check for $50 from the Burney Lions Club in recognition for her achievement.

Emma has a grade point average of 4.0. Her school activities include Youth, California Junior Scholarship Federation, and volleyball. She enjoys crafting, camping, playing volleyball, dancing and acrobatics. She would like to visit Disney World.

In the future she would like to go to community college for two years and then transfer to a four year college. Her goal is to become a science teacher. Mr. Guerrero said that he hopes he will be able to hire her to teach at Burney High.

Emma’s parents, Cory and Heidi Harrington, were both present to see their daughter honored. Mrs. Harrington said that “Emma spends a lot of time doing her homework instead of cleaning her room. She is a very sweet, loving, caring person and is about to become an auntie in a couple of weeks.”

Emma’s sister, mom-to-be Carrie Harrington, was also 8th grade student of the month when she attended Burney Junior High School.
