Emalyn Cork, ’13
Residence: Greenwood, MS
Profession: Ninth-Grade Biology Teacher with Teach for America
Why YHC?: “The people at YHC have rooted for me—and without them, I wouldn’t have been brave enough to go out and do something like Teach for America. Young Harris believed in me.”
Favorite Memory: After receiving a first-place award at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Georgia Academy of Science, her mentor and professor Dr. Linda Jones spontaneously took Cork and two other students to Fernandina Beach to meet her family and celebrate seaside.
