The Emily Fleming Business Award is named in honor of Emily Fleming, who had a strong interest in Accounting.

Emily was very involved in her school and her community. She played basketball, soccer, and cheered for her school football team. She was on student council, president of the National Honor Society, and was awarded Illinois State Scholar.  She was a lead in the 2015 musical, Pippin, and she was very active in the school’s choir.  Every summer Emily went with her church youth group on a mission trip.  She also mentored younger peers by being a breakout group leader for her youth group.

Emily excelled in Accounting and had the opportunity to use her accounting skills in her father’s accounting firm for about a year.  The Emily Fleming Business Award acknowledges and honors a senior business student who is planning to continue her/his business education in college.  It is awarded to a senior student who has a strong work ethic, an inquisitive mind, and accepts a challenge to problem solve when confronted with obstacles.
