Mt. Vernon High School would like to congratulate senior Emma Yarber as she is our next athlete who is signing to continue her career at the collegiate level! Emma will sign with Marian University, Indianapolis, IN on Wednesday, 2/12/20. We invite you to join us in the MVHS Athletic Foyer at 3:15 pm for this event!
Emma is excited to continue her academic and athletic career at Marian University in the fall. During her high school career, Emma has earned 3 varsity letters and was named a team captain her senior year. Emma has been cheering for 6 years and spent 2 years cheering competitively for Legacy Elite.
Emma has had the honor of being named a 4x All American Cheerleader. An award that is given to select athletes who tryout at camp with a presentation of skills in jumps, cheer, and dance. She was also one of four athletes at camp presented with the “Pin it Forward” award. This award is chosen by an athlete from another school team and given to someone who displays impressive leadership and athletic ability.
At Marian University, Emma was recruited to be a member of the competition cheer team. She will cheer both football and basketball game days as well as compete as a team during the winter season. Emma is planning on majoring in Biology (pre-med) with minors in Global Studies and Pastoral Leadership. Emma was also selected as a San Damiano Scholar and Lugar Fellow. She is looking forward to continuing her education at Marian and is excited for the future.
Congratulations, Emma! We are proud of you!
