Scholar Spotlight: Emily Schroder

My time at Resurrection has helped me become a strong, independent woman.

Emily Schroder
Resurrection College Prep of 2015

Both Emily and her sister Ava are Madonna Scholars and attend Resurrection College Prep and are very active members of their community. Emily lives with her sister and mom on the Northwest side of Chicago where they are members of St. Celestine Church. Emily attended St. Celestine for grade school and still volunteers there. She also has been in several plays at St. Patrick High School and volunteers with the Giving Tree at the Harlem Irving Plaza mall each winter.

Emily believes the Madonna Foundation has taught her the importance of helping others and being the best she can be. She is forever grateful to the Madonna Foundation for allowing her to attend an all-girl Catholic high school.
After high school, Emily plans to attend college and pursue her love of writing with a degree in journalism.
