EmmaKate Few of Aquinas High School won last year’s Best &Brightest competition.

She is completing her freshman year at Southern Methodist University where she is a double major in journalism and business. She also has plans to attend law school.

“I love being in Dallas and getting to network with the sports journalists here,” she said. “I got to shadow one of the actual ESPN reporters; that’s something you can’t really do in a small college town market.”

Over the summer, she will travel with 30 fellow SMU students to England for six weeks to study pre-law at Oxford University.
