Emily Burris
Hi! I’m Emily Burris and I am a senior at Washburn Rural High School. This is my third year on the newspaper staff. I am the Online Editor and write for the newspaper staff.  In my free time, I coach and play softball for the Storm Organization. In my free time I like to hang out with friends, listen to music, and watch movies. I love dogs. I have a Chocolate Lab named Max, a Maltipoo named Lily, and a Shih Tzu named Piper. If I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life I would eat Chick-fil-a's waffle fries with Chick-fil-a sauce. My spirit animal is the koala because like me, they sleep a lot.

Emily Burris, Online Editor
