The Perry Property Group has a new intern for the Spring ’09 semester. Meet Emily Headrick:
In 2005 Emily graduated as valedictorian from Seymour High School in East Tennessee. After, winning the Dolly Parton Scholarship she decided to attend Belmont University for an undergraduate degree. Her interest in real estate was sparked when her father began the process of acquiring his license as well as her aunt’s success in the field. This year Emily has been involved with a new program at Belmont called Service Year which focuses on instilling a sense of community between students and members of the community surrounding Belmont. In order to reach out to the community Emily happily spends twenty hours a week at the Campus for Human Development and Room in the Inn, each are non-profit organizations to help the homeless. After time spent with those that are homeless, Emily has a new understanding for the importance of having a place to call home, and has gladly been working with the Perry Property Group as an intern since January 2009 to help people purchase homes.
As a Mass Communication major and English Writing and Dance minor, Emily stays very busy. She is a member of Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority, Engaged Scholar, Alpha Chi Honor Society, and University Ministry Leader. Also, ballet, modern, and jazz dance have always been a passion for Emily, so for three years she has taught for Rejoice Ministries, a non-profit organization that allows inner city girls to take dance classes for free, along with an apprenticeship with Epiphany Modern Dance Company, and she won the Dance Minor of the Year award in 2007.
After remaining on the Dean’s List every semester at Belmont, Emily will graduate Summa Cume Laude in August 2009. She plans to travel the country this summer after being accepted for a travel writing trip across America through Belmont’s Study Abroad Programs. What a way to end an undergraduate degree and experience! As far as post-graduate plans, Emily hopes to still be involved in a Marketing or Communications field through a non-profit organization.
