Emma Norris ’15
Hometown: Coal City, IL
Future Plans: Become a librarian
Emma Norris never envisioned herself in a leadership position, but that changed when she came to the University of Illinois Springfield. She now works as an instruction assistant at Brookens Library and was recently elected secretary of the Biology Club. “Our school provides so many opportunities for students like myself to get involved,” she says. “The leadership skills I’m learning at UIS will carry over into my professional life when I graduate.” Following graduation, Emma plans to pursue a graduate degree in Library and Information Science and hopes to one day become a Science/Medical Librarian.
Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
