Emily Burris
Hi! I’m Emily Burris and I am a junior at Washburn Rural High School. This is my third semester on the newspaper staff. In my free time, I coach and play softball for the Storm Organization. When I'm not at the field (which is a rarity), you could find me walking trails or getting ice cream. I love dogs. I have a Chocolate Lab named Max, a Maltipoo named Lily, and a Shih Tzu named Piper, but if it were up to me, our whole house would be filled with pups. My favorite food is the baked potato soup in a bread bowl from Panera and my favorite animal is the koala because like me, they sleep a lot.
