Emily Sumpena, a senior at Westview High School, is 2017-2018 President of Catalyst for Success. From being Treasurer her sophomore year and Vice President junior year, Catalyst for Success has shaped her into a confident leader and an compassionate individual. Now as President, she hopes to continue sharing her passion and knowledge in science and spread STEM literacy to more diverse and large-scale populations. Other than her active participation in science, she enjoys spreading her love of music to the community by being a violist and President of Westview GOLD Orchestra. Emily is also a dedicated pianist, who has won many awards locally to internationally. If you cannot find Emily in any of the science or music classrooms on campus, you will most definitely find her smiles at Scripps Memorial Hospital, where she volunteers weekly. In this school year, she hopes to continue hearing the echoing laughter and excitement of kids, mixed with sparks of fire and colorful reactions, ringing throughout local classrooms and science fairs.
