Emily hasn’t let an opportunity pass her by since graduating from Lynchburg. She’s been a features reporter for the Potomac News and Manassas Journal Messenger, a CityGuide editor for AOL, and she worked for Stars & Stripes, an independent military newspaper. Now, Emily is the managing editor of platforms and programming at USA Today. Emily knows opportunity when she sees it, which is one of the things that attracted her to Westover Honors.
“You have an opportunity to engage with your classmates and professors in a way that not all students get. Take that opportunity. Lynchburg already offers an amazing experience, with caring professors and small class sizes. Westover is that, plus an extra level of engagement.”
