The YWCA Tri-County Area honored 17 girls at its annual Tribute to Exceptional Girls at a brunch this past spring. Modeled after YWCA Tri-County Area’s long-running and successful Tribute to Exceptional Women, Tribute to Exceptional Girls honors the achievements and accomplishments of girls who have an impact on their peers, in their schools, and in their communities.

 Community members nominated girls in six categories, and the Wyomissing Area School District is proud to celebrate Emmerson Piacine, a rising sophomore at Wyomissing Area High School for receiving the Environmental Science Award.

Emmerson is one of the youngest students chosen for The Philadelphia Zoo’s ZooCREW Internship program, and one of only 15 students chosen from a pool of 145 students during her eighth-grade year. She completed her second year in ZooCREW during her ninth-grade year.

Emmerson was nominated by her mentor at the Zoo, Donte Milligan, who says “Emmerson has a zeal and passion for the work and always asks questions to understand more.”
