She wants to be a strong role model for younger students.

That is one of the goals Dunmore junior Emily Pavlowski has in her upcoming new role as Miss Buck for the. 2016-17 school year.

Daughter of Tom and Missy Pavlowski, Dunmore, Emily was selected last month as Miss Buck for the 2016-17 school year. She has a 97.5 academic average and is a member of the soccer and track and field teams.

Emily, who is in the national honor society, keeps as busy as possible. She is also a member of the Spanish Club, TACT, SADD and Service Club. She is also a basketball cheerleader. Her best academic subjects are Math and Science.

Emily, who runs the 300 hurdles in track, was a first-team all-star in her freshman season as a member of the soccer team.

Her reaction to her selection as Miss Buck was filled with excitement. “I was honored,” she said. “I had always admired the prior Miss Bucks and always wanted to be Miss Buck. So this really was very special to me.”

And Emily’s goals as Miss Buck. “I want to represent Dunmore High School and be a role model for younger twirlers and children.”

Emily has been taking up twirling at Sherry’s Royalettes, Dunmore, since she was in fifth grade. The scholar-athlete said she is always open to learn more.

Emily, who enjoys music, said she has seen country singer Luke Bryan twice in concert and will attending his show again this summer at Montage Mountain.

She talked about her future goals.

“I would like to go to Penn State or the University of Pittsburgh and study biology in hopes of becoming an orthodontist. I want to complete college and do very well, so I can go on to medical school and become a very successful orthodontist.”

She spoke about her parents. “My parents teach me to always do my best and never let anyone discourage me.”

Emily, a cheerleader for three years, talked about her experience at Dunmore High School. “It’s been nothing but positive,” she said. “I have been involved in a lot of things at Dunmore High School. And the big thing is I am having a lot of fun while continuing to do well academically.

“Dunmore is a great place to be with great friends.”

Emily will have no problem carrying the torch as the new Miss Buck.
