“Katie is one of the hardest working students we’ve had come through the program.  saw that we had something special in her. Once I got to see her work ethic and got to know her as a friend, I continue to say that the sky is the limit for her. For her to win this award, it validates me in what I saw in her three years ago,” said Brian Stanley, Husky Productions’ executive producer.

Emmer has officially graduated from SCSU but is still taking online classes while looking for first full-time sports broadcasting job.
