WHS senior Emmy Crane has been selected from applicants across the United States to be the student speaker at the 2017 AVID Summer Institute in Tampa, Florida, in June. Emmy submitted a speech to the AVID national directors earlier this year telling her story of how AVID has impacted her life. Before the final decision was made, she had to go through a rigorous interview process and, after further impressing the selection committee, she received the news that she was selected from hundreds of applicants nationwide to tell her story to thousands at this year's AVID Summer Institute.

Thank you, Emmy, for sharing your story and showing the nation that good things are happening at Walton High School! Look for her on the AVID channel on YouTube later this year! Submitted by Christy English.
