Emily Nohr is a leader.
The 20-year-old news-editorial and broadcasting major leads a young girl as part of the TeamMates mentoring program, leads Alpha Omicron Pi sorority as vice president and leads the community as a Pepsi Service Scholar.
And if that weren’t enough, she belongs to Mortar Board, a national honor society that prides itself on leadership, scholarship and service.
When she isn’t helping others, the Crofton, Neb., native earned a fellowship with the Omaha World-Herald, where she still writes part time. In addition, she attended a program at the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Fla., a school that provides journalism training programs.
But being a leader doesn’t necessarily mean she has her future mapped out. While she’s unsure about what job she’ll pursue, she’s certain writing will be involved.
“Writing is great because it challenges me,” she said. “It doesn’t come super easy for me, but I like it because I learn something new in each story I write.”
