I just want everyone to find a home and through that our chapter can do that and my team can do that. 

Emma Brence, Prowl Reporter

Emma Brence is a senior this year and has taken on the position of Powell-Shoshone FFA President. Emma’s whole life revolves around that blue corduroy jacket and will use any opportunity to bring up agriculture in a conversation. Now don’t be fooled by her red hair and redneck personality, Emma will run away from any bug she sees on the ground.

When Emma isn’t running to officer meetings or FFA events you can find her using her “athletic” skills to flip off the diving board or trying to look peppy with the PHS cheer squad. She lacks hand-eye coordination and agility, so don’t invite her to any activity that requires any bit of skill.

Emma has no social life so if you want to hang out with her, you most likely will be hanging out with her only two friends (her cat and her 4-year old cousin), and driving around in her orange Cadillac.

“I must say that Emma has probably one of the best names known to mankind,” senior Emma Johnson said. “I possess no bias or reasoning behind that statement of course. Besides her name, she is also one of the most hardworking and sincere people I’ve been surrounded by in the newsroom.”
