KLEW News introduces you to Clarkston High School student Emily Berreth.
With a scholarship under her belt, this high school senior is ready to serve her country. Her name is Emily Berreth and she's this week's "Academic All-Star."
"I either want to be a pilot which is another eight years of school which I could do easily," said Emily. "Or I want to be a doctor in the Air Force which would be more time but a doctor would be pretty cool."
Emily is going to Washington State University in the fall on a full scholarship. Then she'll join the Air Force after graduation.
"That was actually the first time they've ever actually offered a Commander scholarship," said Emily.
It's no surprise that Emily is a 4.0 student, and naturally a shoe-in as one of this year's valedictorians.
"I've always tried to keep A's up and be a valedictorian," said Emily. "I just wanted to be special I guess. So in order to be special I worked really hard on my grades."
But it wasn't an easy road getting there. It took a lot of determination to meet her goals.
"Push towards that goal and you're like I can do this, I can make it through this hard time because in the end this is going to be nothing compared to when I get to my goal," said Emily.
Congratulations Emily, you're this week's Academic All-Star.
