Warrior Watch

Emily Parks

Emily Parks, Staff Writer

Hi! I’m Emily Parks, a senior at West Branch. I participate in varsity soccer, basketball, and track. I am also vice-president of the class of 2023, president of Student Government, secretary of Varisty Club, and a member of the National Honor Society. After high school, I plan to become a physician assistant or pediatrician.
