Smithfield-Selma High School (SSS) student Emma Creech is a rising role model in her community. Emma is one of only forty North Carolina students selected to participate in the Perry Outreach Program. She has also been selected to be a Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Junior Staff Member at NC State University this summer!
The Perry Initiative collaborates with medical centers, universities, and high schools to host nationwide programs for young women in high school. These day-long programs provide students with the opportunity to conduct mock orthopaedic surgeries, conduct biomechanical engineering experiments, and interact with prominent women surgeons and engineers. Emma participated in the Perry Outreach Program at Wake Forest University on February 18th.
The Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) is an organization dedicated to leadership development, inspiring young people to make a positive difference in their communities. Areas of focus include volunteerism, politics, and philanthropy. As a HOBY alumni, Emma was selected to be a Junior Staff Volunteer this summer. Her responsibilities will be to assist in the seminar functions and to serve as a role model to her younger peers.
