Milton High School senior Emily Germany doesn’t discriminate when it comes to getting involved in different activities. The student body president has tested the waters of sports, music and other programs all while taking advanced classes and considering a future in medicine.

“I’ve really enjoyed getting to know the school on many different levels,” she said. “I’ve tried to spread myself out and really get a taste for everything at Milton.”

“Multi-talented” is one word that could be used to describe Germany. As a freshman and sophomore, she played volleyball and said she was able to come to school that first year with that built-in connection. She also learned a lot about leadership from the seniors on the team that year and has used that as she has gained leadership roles.

“The way that they approached you really made you feel like they genuinely cared about you,” she said. “It’s incredible the extra time you take and the impact you can make.”

Germany is also involved in chorus, making it in the top audition class her sophomore year and helping establish connect programs throughout the classes.

From selling coffee to help the Future Business Leaders of America to cheering for the basketball team, Germany said she has had a great time at Milton and is excited about her future.

That future may include studies in medicine, she said, and she has already set herself up to pursue that possibility.

Germany has taken several Advanced Placement science classes — including physics, chemistry and biology — and has been accepted to several schools already.

Even though science is one of her focuses, Germany said she wants to go to college and try different things before she settles on a major.

“I’m looking for a school that will give me opportunities regardless of which path I decide to take,” she said.

Right now she has been accepted to five schools and is waiting to hear back from two more. Her first choice is University of Virginia and will hear back from them later this spring.
