Senior Spotlight — Emma Leigh Marietta Wright

MADISON – Emma Leigh Marietta Wright is a graduating senior at Bob Jones High School.

“Some of my favorite subjects included these four, but these aren’t the limits. Astronomy … because of not only my teacher but also the content we learned was just mind-blowing,” Wright said.

“There are so many things we have yet to discover about the universe and about our own galaxy. The possibilities are practically endless,” she said.

In computer class, she “learned about different types of malware and how they can infest your computer and what people do with them, how they’re created and why they can destroy a PC in minutes. We also learned how to work with coding and make our own games using Unity and Python, which was really fun,” Wright said.

“I really enjoyed my 11th-grade history class. Mr. Cory Wright was one of the best history teachers I had,” Wright said. “Mr. Wright made things so fun and interesting to learn about and had plenty of stories to tell us since he’s a part-time officer.”

Multimedia publications also was a top-ranked class for Wright. “It was a blast to brainstorm ideas for our literary magazine. My teacher, Mrs. Brandy Panagos, was a fantastic teacher!” Wright said.

“It was always fun and exciting to walk into (the multimedia) room, see so many smiling faces and get ready for class. It was one of the few classes I never wanted to miss,” Wright said.

Wright was a member of the Green Power race team during eighth and ninth grades. She also participated with Art Club and “Patriot Pages,” the online news site at Bob Jones with articles, photography, video and animations.

Her parents are Brian and Debbie Wright, and the Bob Jones graduate has one brother, 12-year-old John.

Emma Leigh Marietta Wright will enroll at the University of North Alabama to pursue a computer science degree “so I can go into programming and game development one day.”

“I really want to make a shoutout to all of my teachers I had in high school — to say, ‘Thank you,’ all so much for a fantastic set of four years,” Wright said. “I feel so happy when you said, ‘Hello,’ to me when I continued on, even out of your class.”

That courtesy “let me know you care, and it means a lot! I wish you all the best of luck the next years you plan to teach at Bob Jones. It’s a fantastic school. I pray that the next generation and beyond of students enjoys it as much as I did,” Wright said.
